PSoC ESD/EMC Resistance

Question: How resistant is the PSoC to ESD/EMC noise?



The resistance of PSoC to electromagnetic emmision depends on the length of traces used and board layout.  It is adviced to connect 560 Ohms series resistors on all the sensor traces and 330 Ohms resistors on all communication lines and input lines. Resistance can also be increased by writing a logic "0", strong driving all of the unused output pins, and hardwiring the pins to ground. For more information, you can read the Section 3 of the Getting Started with Capsense guide.
