Inductive Sensing is a contact-less, short-range sensing technology that enables
low-cost, high-resolution sensing of conductive targets in the presence of dust, dirt, oil, and
moisture, making it extremely reliable in hostile environments. Using a coil which can be created
on a PCB as a sensing element, the LDC1000 enables ultra-low cost system solutions.
Inductive sensing technology enables precise measurement of linear and angular position,
displacement, motion, compression, vibration, metal composition, and several other applications in
markets including automotive, consumer, computer, industrial, medical, and communications.
Inductive sensing offers better performance and reliability at lower cost than other competitive
The LDC1000 is the world’s first inductance-to-digital converter, offering the benefits
of inductive sensing in a low-power, small-footprint solution. The product is available in a SON-16
package and offers several modes of operation. A serial peripheral interface (SPI) simplifies
connection to an MCU.
