Silicone-based dielectric elastomer sensors (DESs) are highly flexible, fast responding, energy efficient, and low-cost transducers which are highly suitable for integration in existing wearable systems. This paper aims at investigating the sensor properties of a DES system shaped in a matrix configuration. For the DES matrix, an LCR-meter is used to characterize the capacitance, while a separate measurement technique is used to detect the total electrode resistance. The collected data are then compared with the measurements obtained via a commercially available integrated circuit. The electrical characteristic of the proposed DE layout is then studied, and the capability of standard integrated circuits in handling DES systems is experimentally evaluated.
