Capacitive touch sensing can be found in countless applications across the globe today and is familiar to anyone who owns a Smartphone or Tablet.
With wide scale adoption starting almost 20 years ago, Capacitive touch has been deployed in a myriad of products and markets, although it has to be said with varying success. It's great for your touchscreen, but perhaps not so compelling on a car dashboard or your TV remote control. What it does offer is light (zero-force) touch-sensing and the ability to detect approach through proximity sensing. In fact, capacitive can detect and measure anything that is conductive or has a dielectric different from air.
We like Capacitive sensing at Tangio! Unlike our competitors in the resistive force touch market we believe it has a role in many modern HMI implementations. The combination of Capacitive and Force can be a winning formula in a wide range of applications.
Using decades of experience in printed electronics, Tangio can offer customers fully customised Capacitive sensing solutions. Perhaps as a stand alone sensor or integrated with other sensor types into a custom module or complete front-panel solution.
