Azoteq is a fabless semiconductor company founded by Dr. Frederick Bruwer in 1998. Azoteq is a pioneer in multi-sensor solutions offered on a single IC. With more than 12 years of capacitive sensing experience, the sensor offering is now expanded to include ProxFusion™ multi-sensor technology. The first generaton of ProxFusion™ offers capacitive sensing, Hall-effect, IR, PIR, inductive and ambient light sensing.
Azoteq's ProxSense® offers the most sensitive and robust capacitive proximity and touch technology. ProxSense® controllers can sense capacitive changes as small as 100 atto Farads with a signal-to-ratio of 1000:1.
Capacitive, Inductive, Hall-effect, IR and Ambient light sensors, combined into single package, small BOM, IC solutions. A world first in the high level of integration and low power consumption.
