    Capacitance measurement of an external component

      Hello,

       

      I have a load cell based on Capacitance variation. The initial value of this sensor is about 100 pF and by applying load the capacitance variation is about 1pF/kg.

      I need to measure this capacitance variation using PSOC-4 or PSOC5 kits.

      May you please explain how I can make it. Had a look on many of examples and datasheets, none of them is related to my situation.

       

      I have found some functions such as CapSense_ReadSensorRaw() (which returns 0), but have no idea what it does exactly and what other functions should be called before to set it up.

       

      Thanks,
