Intelligent tactile switch


Marketing Opportunity1_MB
Standard capacitive touch sensors have many disadvantages. They can not be covered with metal, water can affect their proper functionality, Braille symbols can not be used, etc.
We offer a new, innovative approach in design of tactile switches. Our switch has integrated touch/pressure sensor and all of the necessary components. Each switch is also preprogrammed with the unique software. The switch can operate in a standalone mode and also as a key in a keyboard matrix. When the switch operates in the keyboard mode all switches are connected automatically and the user can read and customize the parameters of each key individually by using only two wires.
The switch operates using patented modified capacitive principle instead of the inductive.
