re: Capacitive sensing applications widen

This is an article which presents a lot of innovative ideas of where a capacitive sensor can be used. It also shows and allows one to realize that in the realm of capacitive sensors there are different kind, like touch sensors and proximity sensors. I really liked that of the combination of a capacitive touch sensor with a mechanical sensor in one. The capacitive gives you the preview of the function and the mechanical finishes the selection. Though... in regards previewing the selection... makes me think of the fact that some capacitive touch solutions ran through a re-calibration scheme if one leaves his finger long enough and thus the preview will be seized. I wonder if this is the case with all solutions out there?

David Patterson, known for his pioneering research that led to RAID, clusters and more, is part of a team at UC Berkeley that recently made its RISC-V processor architecture an open source hardware offering. We talk with Patterson and one of his colleagues behind the effort about the opportunities they see, what new kinds of designs they hope to enable and what it means for today’s commercial processor giants such as Intel, ARM and Imagination Technologies.
