#1

Looks like the nRF52840 on the mesh products has the capability to measure capacitance, is there any plans to expose this feature to user space apps?


#2

What use do you want to make of capacitance measurement? Touch button? If so, then I would use a specialised controller IC - much less problematic.


#3

Soil moisture sampling and minimising external components. Currently we are reliant on an external component which adds cost to the BOM.
