Capacitive Touch Sensors
Problems We Solve
(compared to the standard, off-the-shelf solution)
Your success depends on the user experience people have when they touch your product. Can you accept false touches? Does your device need to operate both with bare fingers as well as gloves? In wet and dry conditions? Most medical, appliance and industrial capacitive sensors have different performance requirements than a mobile phone, so why use a sensor that is not made just for your needs? Read more.
A stock touch sensor can be a great answer but it usually comes with compromises. You don’t need to adapt the rest of your design (housing, lens, assembly operations, etc.) to accept the limitations of a stock sensor. Get the configuration that you need for your small or medium volume application. Read more.
Global sourcing is great, and it comes with minimum orders that can be a challenge, poor customer service and engineering support, language barriers, time delays and other sub-optimal situations. You can get what you want if you work with the right supplier. Read more.
The life cycle of electronic parts is short – often only a year or two. How long will your device be in production and service? Most medical, appliance and industrial product platforms are around for 5-20 years. What will you do when your off-the-shelf touchscreen is no longer manufactured? Read more.
