Summary: 
An active circuit for detecting a small capacitance change accurately with a minimum number of components is presented for interfacing a capacitive sensor with a digital system. No component trimming is required and the sensitivity to circuit constants is minimum. Thus, it meets all the requirements for the on-chip interface.
