The MS889X-series are capacitive sensors and switches that have been specifically developed for use in “Wearables“. When the MS889X functions as a switch, an external sensor capacitance is compared to a programmed threshold to detect whether the external value lies above or below the threshold. The MS889X-series have an ultra-low current consumption (750nA) between 1.8V and 4.5V and is ideal for use in battery operated systems. There are numerous programming options to aid simple integration into an electronic system. Important parameters can be programmed into a non-volatile memory to allow autonomous operation.
Human Body Detection (e.g. “In-ear phones“ or finger detector)
Wrist detection (e.g. wearables or medical wearables)
