The capacitive touchscreen market grows with each passing day and as more and more devices adopt touchscreens, the quality of the product plays a defining role in gaining a larger market share. In order to provide competitive and cost-effective products, manufacturers have (amongst other things) to redesign and optimize existing models. This is a process that can prove to be challenging and resource consuming, especially if not done with the proper tools.
This use case demonstrates the process of redesigning and improving an existing touch sensor using Fieldscale’s touchscreen design tool SENSE version 1.5, specially designed to address the specific needs of touchscreen industry. The redesigned touch sensor should provide better optical performance and a slimmer profile, while maintaining both its sensitivity and compatibility with the controller.
