IntroductionConcept of capacitorPCBLED messaging systemProblem BackgroundThe production line.On the convey.

Research QuestionMaking capacitive touch sensor panel on PCBLED as the outputResearch ObjectiveThe objective of the project as follow:To construct a planar capacitive sensor on printed circuit board (PCB)To design and simulate the capacitive sensing and LED messaging system circuit.To construct a LED messaging system based a panel of LED matrix.Scope of the studyMaking the capacitive touch sensor. Act as switch.Use PIC16F84A as main controller.LED messaging as output or sign of alert to user.Literature ReviewTheoryThe capacitive sensor detect capacitance change.

humans touch give result value of 100 to 250 pF with body resistance from 1000 to 2000 ohmsBasic formula for calculating capacitance

Capacitive sensing using frequency change

theThe oscillator will oscillate a frequency.

The frequency changes when touched by finger

When capacitance increased, the frequency will decrease

Basic Construction of the capacitive sensorConcept is same as the normal capacitor.
