The LDC0851 evaluation module demonstrates using inductive sensing technology to accurately detect the presence of a conductive target object passing a fixed threshold. The evaluation module includes a perforated and interchangeable 4-layer PCB where both the sensing coil and reference coil are stacted for reduced system size. The presence of a conductive object passing the fixed threshold is indicated by a green LED; therefore, no MCU or GUI is required. Adjust the resistive potentiometer to switch the threshold easily for flexibility and quick system prototyping.
