Replaces mechanical buttons with elegant, non-tactile, compact user-interface
Integrate different input methods and feedback mechanisms, adding another layer of communication with the end-user and improving usability.
Eliminates several design layers and components from the traditional switch circuitry, resulting in a cost-effective solution.
Prolong switch and device life with sealed, smooth, and easily cleanable capacitive switches, which prevent ingress of moisture or dust.
Capacitive switches have emerged as a popular user interface style, replacing traditional membrane switches, elastomers, and full travel keyboards as the primary input method on many product designs. Capacitive switch sensors are chosen for the thin, non-mechanical designs that can be applied to curved surfaces and mounted behind glass or decorated plastic. Depending on your application requirements, these sensors can also be backlit to provide a cost-effective modern design. Boyd offers a variety of printed capacitive sensors that can integrate with commonly available microcontrollers to provide capacitive touch sensing.
