About Semtech’s Smart Sensing Solutions
Semtech’s smart sensing solution features best-in-class sensitivity for optimal human presence detection. It can not only be used as a touch input, but also a proximity human sensor telling wearable devices whether the device is being worn or not.  Even under various environment factors such as temperature and humidity, the smart sensor can still provide the highest sensing resolution and most reliable measurement. Semtech’s smart sensing solution consumes ultra-low power, has ultra-small footprint, and is able to sense with small sensing area, so that it can be easily designed into the system with small internal space and limited power supply. All above features make Semtech’s smart sensor the ideal solution for the increasing demands of smart control in wearable devices.
