ZSSC3123 cLite™ Capacitive Sensor Signal Conditioner Brief Description Benefits The ZSSC3123 is a CMOS integrated circuit for accurate capacitance-to-digital conversion and sensor-specific correction of capacitive sensor signals. Digital compensation of sensor offset, sensitivity, and temperature drift is accomplished via an internal digital signal processor running a correction algorithm with calibration coefficients stored in a non-volatile EEPROM. The ZSSC3123 is configurable for capacitive sensors with capacitances up to 260pF and a sensitivity of 125aF/LSB to 1pF/LSB depending on resolution, speed, and range settings. It is compatible with both single capacitive sensors (both terminals must be accessible) and differential capacitive sensors. Measured and corrected 2 sensor values can be output as I C™*, SPI, PDM, or alarms. 2 The I C™ interface can be used for a simple PC-controlled calibration procedure to program a set of calibration coefficients into an on-chip EEPROM. The calibrated ZSSC3123 and a specific sensor are mated digitally: fast, precise, and without the cost overhead of trimming by external devices or laser. Minimized calibration costs: no laser trimming, onepass calibration using a digital interface Wide capacitance range to support a broad portfolio of different sensor elements Excellent for low-power battery applications Features Maximum Target input capacitance: 260pF Sampling rates as fast as 0.7ms at 8-bit resolution; 1.6ms at 10-bit; 5.0ms at 12-bit; 18.5ms at 14-bit st nd Digital compensation of sensor: piece-wise 1 and 2 rd order sensor compensation or up to 3 order singleregion sensor compensation st nd Digital compensation of 1 and 2 order temperature gain and offset drift Internal temperature compensation reference (no external components) Programmable capacitance span and offset Layout customized for die-die bonding with sensor for low-cost, high-density chip-on-board assembly † Accuracy as high as ±0.25% FSO@ -40 to 125°C, 3V, 5V, Vsupply ±10% Interfaces I²C™ or SPI interface—easy connection to a µC PDM outputs (Filtered Analog Ratiometric) for both capacitance and temperature Up to two alarms that can act as full push-pull or opendrain switches Physical Characteristics Supply voltage: 2.3V to 5.5V Typical current consumption 650μA down to 60μA depending on configuration Typical Sleep Mode current: ≤ 1μA at 85°C Operation temperature: –40°C to +125°C Die or TSSOP14 package Available Support ZSSC3123 SSC Evaluation Kit available: SSC Evaluation Board, samples, software, documentation.
