Press release date: August 23, 2012

Micro Analog Systems Oy introduces MAS6512, a 16 Bit Capacitive Sensor Signal Interface IC primarily intended for MEMS based pressure sensor modules.

The device uses a ratiometric AD-converter principle employing a delta-sigma conversion technique, giving very good noise performance. Its current consumption is extremely low (1.9 A) and it can operate at low supply voltage from 1.8 V to 3.6 V which makes it an ideal solution for interfacing a capacitive sensor in power consumption critical portable applications.

The resolution of the ADC is 14-bits. The over sampling ratio (OSR) of the Delta-Sigma converter has five values to choose from for further optimization between conversion accuracy, speed and current consumption. MAS6512 capacitive sensor interface IC can interface both single and dual capacitance sensors. It has internal temperature sensor for temperature measurement and temperature compensation purposes. The MAS6512 communicates via a standard 2-wire I2C and 4-wire SPI bus interface.
