Pic Lab. PIC18. Experiment #6. Touch sensor using ADC

Task: To study the possibility of using of the DIY touch capacitive sensor on the pcb

Tools: PIC18f1230, a pcb with exposed square copper areas

So long story short, my cheap amazon lamp did not survive for a long time, but I really did like the LED light it gave. In the article below I will describe how to use a copper pad and the pic microcontroller without much additional circuitry.

Touch sensor touched and untouched
