Update to the LDC1000 experiments

A few days after my article about the LDC1000 experiments I got some feedback from TI. They did let me know that

the chip can be used to design a general purpose metal detector. In this application, the coil design would need to change: increasing the coil size or adding a ferrite backing to the coil will increase the detection range.

Some experiments with the LDC1000 inductive sensor

Texas Instruments recently released their new LCD1000 inductive sensor. They touted it as a “game changing” announcement. And even though I don’t share that excitement, it looks like an interesting sensor (and I don’t work on stuff which relies heavily on position sensing like e.g. the automotive industries). So I ordered the evaluation kit to play a little bit.
