On a MKW30Z requiring one pin for capacitive touch TSI sensing circuit PTC3 muxed to TSI0_CH15


The TSI plate is not mounted on PCB, but via a small coax cable less than 10 cm to a brass metal knob on the metal case isolated from the case.


The reference article AN3863: Designing Touch Sensing does not give references for outside pcb sensors. 


There are some specifications on how to adapt the button ?

Pull-up resistor is required ?

There is a need for additional parallel capacitance ?
