TPE-520 Force Sensing Potentiometer (FSP)
Tangio's TPE-520 Force Sensing Potentiometer (FSP) is a low cost, high-feature sensor for intuitive control and navigation. It functions simultaneously as both a single finger position and variable force sensor. TPE-520 is easy to integrate, high resolution, low-power, and ideal for a wide range of applications & markets. Interfacing is simple via a host processor without the need for a dedicated MCU.
Additionally, the TPE-520 FSP is dynamically reconfigurable in firmware, perhaps acting as a set of predefined analogue or digital buttons in one mode and a positional "slider" in another. Maximum flexibility for minimal investment.
TPE-520 is Tangio's standard sample sensor for customer evaluation. For mass production we offer a full custom design service enabling customers to select key parameters such as device footprint, cover material, interconnect and illumination options. We can also offer FSP arrays, and combine with other sensor types as needed. Contact us directly to discuss your custom FSP requirements.
