Hello all,

Does anyone know for sure whether the CapSense library works with Arduino Mega 2560?


Thanks

Thanks, that might be worth a try:)

First of all, thanks for the fast answer.

It might be a solution, I'll try it with the analog pins.
There is only one drawback left: I still have to run a led driver that takes up 5 digital pins (13, 11, 20, 9, 4). Anyhow, I cannot avoid using a multiplexer, I hope someone has experience with that.

Hello all,

I am currently working with the CapSense library to create capacitive sensors with Arduino. I managed to make some sensors (made of copper wire) work but I will need 16 sensors (there are no enough digital pins for that). Does anyone have experience with using a 4051 or 4067 analog multiplexer with capacitive sensing?

Thanks in advance.

PS. The sensors do not have to output super-precise values.
