Executive Summary Capacitive Sensing is one of the sensing technologies along with various others like resistive sensing, inductive sensing, and acoustic sensing. The capacitive sensor detects an object or target by measuring the changes in the capacitance between the two conductive objects. A capacitive sensor basically works in three different operating modes, namely load mode, transmit mode, and shunt mode. Projected capacitive sensing technology is preferred in most of the applications as compared to the surface capacitive technology. Projected capacitance is further classified into two types, namely self capacitance and mutual capacitance. Capacitive sensors are considered to be far better as compared to the resistive sensing technology because of high accuracy, sensitivity and absence of wear & tear problem. Capacitive sensors are continuously replacing the resistive sensors in most of the applications

and others. Touch sensing is the major application of the capacitive sensors and consumer electronics is the major industrial sector which contributes the maximum to the overall revenue of the capacitive sensors.
