Abstract
(EN)
The invention relates to a capacitive sensor device 100. The capacitive sensor device (100) comprises a substrate (401), a first electrode (101) coupled to the substrate (401, a second electrode (102) coupled to the substrate (401) and a movable element (103). The movable element (103) is capacitively coupled to the first electrode (101), the moveable element (103) and the first electrode (101) representing a first capacitor (104). The movable element (103) is capacitively coupled to the second electrode (102), the moveable element (103) and the second electrode (102) representing a second capacitor (105). The movable element (103) is movable between the first electrode (101) and the second electrode (102) in such a manner, that an electrical impedance between the first electrode (101) and the second electrode (102) is changeable due to a change of a position of the movable element (103). The movable element (103) is decoupled from the substrate (401), in particular to a signal line.

L’invention concerne un dispositif capteur capacitif (100), comprenant un substrat (401), une première électrode (101) reliée au substrat (401), une seconde électrode (102) reliée au substrat (401) et un élément mobile (103). L’élément mobile (103) est relié par capacité à la première électrode (101), l’élément mobile (103) et la première électrode (101) représentant un premier condensateur (104). L’élément mobile (103) est relié par capacité à la seconde électrode (102), l’élément mobile (103) et la seconde électrode (102) représentant un second condensateur (105). L’élément mobile (103) est mobile entre la première électrode (101) et la seconde électrode (102), un changement de position de l’élément mobile (103) se traduisant par une variation d’impédance électrique entre la première électrode (101) et la seconde électrode (102). L’élément mobile (103) est découplé du substrat (401), plus particulièrement vers une ligne de transmission de signaux.
