I can see on your reccomendation of "General layout guideline of CY8CMBR3xxx_Design_Toolbox.xlsx" .

Our Proximity Spec

- Proximity Loop diameter      19mm

- Required Proximity Distance  19mm

Guideline

Proximity sensor Parasitic Capacitance (Cp)

Min 8 pF -- Max 45 pF

I input our parameter to "Table B: Cp Calclator of CY8CMBR3xxx_Design_Toolbox.xlsx".

This resuilt 6pFis out of your recommendation.  6pF < min 8pF

If you have any concern about this result. Please advice to avoid issue.

Hi masu_1341616

Since MBR3 device uses smartsense algorithm for tuning, it is recommended to ensure that Cp criteria is met.

In the layout, you can leave a jumper to add a parallel capacitor in the proximity sensor trace if needed. This will ensure that Cp (parasitic capacitance) is added to the pin as observed by the MBR3 device and allows setting the parameters accordingly. In a prototype of the layout, if the sensor is not working as expected due to small Cp, the parallel cap will help adjust the capacitance.

Best regards
