Touch-switching interfaces for smart tech
Touch switching interfaces are ideal for smart technology devices as they are sleek, modern and are easy to interact with. There are various types of touch-switching technology available. However, capacitive touch screens are usually found in consumer electronics due to their increased durability, higher sensitivity to light touch and sharper image quality.
Capacitive touch panels have a relatively low tooling cost and no moving parts, therefore no risk of wear. Features for incorporation into a capacitive touch panel design include; dynamic backlighting, multitouch control, gloved finger-operated, and tactile response (vibration).
Capacitive touch panels offer fantastic design flexibility, especially for software development, used to control the device’s functionality when it’s in use. Examples of smart technology devices are home automation systems, consumer smartphones and tablets.
