The Capacitance-to-Digital Converter (CDC) is a device to sense the capacitance and convert it into digital output. Besides the direct capacitance value measurement, the CDC technology enables many kinds of applications.
The advances in CDC technology make possible many innovations and improvements in the healthcare industry and help deal with the challenges for healthcare equipment, include developing new diagnosis and treatment methods, enabling remote monitoring and home healthcare devices, improving quality and reliability, and enhancing flexibility and ease of use.
My Analog Dialogue article suggests some possibilities about ADI high performance CDC technology in healthcare applications. You can read more about the article here: http://www.analog.com/library/analogdialogue/archives/46-05/cdcs_in_healthcare.html
I hope this article will help you understand more about CDC technology and stimulate your creativity. I would like to invite you to leave your feedback and comments below.
