Independent lab confirms technology breakthrough that changes the game for military and aerospace product development.
Austin, TX – October 23, 2014 – Specialty touch screen and display manufacturer, Touch International, confirmed today their latest MulTI-Touch line of high performance projected capacitive sensors passes military and aerospace EMI/RFI requirements. This will have huge benefits for engineers looking to integrate multi-touch projected capacitive touch technology into their products.
“Given that our focus is high reliability and advanced markets such as military and aerospace, this is a huge win for us,” says Shaun Detmer, Marketing Director. “Until now, multi-touch capacitive sensors have been barred from the battlefield because of strict EMI/RFI requirements. Our engineers have opened new doors for integrators to develop game-changing products.”
One of the most common problems implementing p-cap technology is the electromagnetic interference or susceptibility. The latest S-Series design was tested in an independent lab against MIL-STD-461F with a frequency of 10KHz-18GHz and DO-160G with a frequency of 100MHz-6GHz. The sensor used for testing was a TI designed 10.4-inch glass-glass projected capacitive with a 1.1mm cover glass. The tested sensor maintains excellent optics and is completely compatible with TI’s existing library of enhancements such as optical bonding, optical filters, custom cover glass, bezel integration and other value-adding solutions. This enables military, aerospace, transportation, and medical designers or manufacturers to tackle EMI/RFI compliance and regulation issues easily at the component level.
All of Touch International’s projected capacitive touch sensors are Windows 7/8 compatible and can be customized to work with any enclosure, bezel, and display. Sensors are available with I2C or plug-n-play USB connectivity. Demo kits are available built to order and can feature add-ons such as sunlight readable displays and optical bonding.
