Diamond’s Silicone Rubber Design Tool provides designers with the ability to understand the types of tactile key response available for their products which can be useful at the beginning of the design process. Determining what limitations the design has and demonstrating the capabilities of incorporating a silicone rubber keypad into an interface, helping designers decide whether it is the right choice of keypad technology.
One of the main benefits of choosing to incorporate a Silicone Rubber or CombiKey Keypad is the ability to tune the feel of the key to suit the product you are developing. By adapting the web structure and/or the shore hardness of the material we can help you produce a switch with feedback that customers will be comfortable with whatever the application.
Diamond HMI have also produced their Silicone Rubber Keypad Design Guide which gives information on all the parameters that should be considered when designing a rubber keypad.
