AS8579-ASSM SSOP24 LF T&RDP Description
The AS8579 is a capacitive sensor that detects the change of capacity in
different applications. The capacitive sensor measures the impedance
that originates between a conducting surface (metallic object) and a
human being. The IC captures the current of a metal object and applies
algorithms to determine the capacitive and resistive information.
The outcome information can be read through a SPI Interface that can be
also used for IC configuration. This high precision performance sensor
also supports a multitude of diagnostic features that meet standard
functional safety requirements. The capacitive sensing IC is
specifically designed to function in an electro-magnetic environment
(EMC) with high magnetic disturbances. This allows the sensor to
distinguish in a hands-on application if the driver‘s hand is on the
steering wheel or not. The AS8579 is available in an SSOP24 package and
operates at a supply voltage of 5V.
