WO15090426A1 Sensor evaluation device and method for operating said device Integrated sensor evaluation circuit for evaluating a sensor signal (14) received from a sensor (12), having a first connection (28a) for connection to the sensor and a second connection (28b) for connection to the sensor. The integrated sensor evaluation circuit comprises a configuration data memory (16) for storing configuration data which describe signal properties of a plurality of sensor control signals (26a-c). The integrated sensor evaluation circuit also comprises a plurality of signal generators (18) which are connected to the configuration data memory and to the first connection and are designed to each provide a sensor control signal on the basis of a common signal clock (24) and the configuration data. The integrated sensor evaluation circuit also comprises a signal processing block (22) which is connected to the configuration data memory and to the second connection. The signal processing block is designed to receive the sensor signal which is applied to the second connection and is based on the plurality of sensor control signals. The signal processing block is also designed to evaluate the received sensor signal on the basis of the signal clock and the configuration data in order to provide an evaluation result (32).
