SNAU163C August 2014 – October 2016 FDC1004
The Sensing Solutions GUI is capable on configuring the device more intuitively than the direct register values. The "Configuration" page provides an easy-to-use tool for updating the device configuration and provides additional information about how the device will perform.
The FDC1004 measures in a round robin mode and can make up to four measurements. If all four measurements are enabled and the sample rate is 400 samples per second new data for all four measurements would be available at a rate of 100 Hz. If a single measurement were enabled rather than all four, again with the sampling rate set to 400 samples per second, new data for the single measurement would be available at a rate of 400 Hz.
To make a single measurement only once, select the measurement channel and click "Take Measurement". This will disable the "Enable continuous multi-channel measurements" setting. Continuous measurements must be enabled for the data streaming function of the GUI and EVM.
Please reference the FDC1004 datasheet for more information regarding individual measurement settings.
