PRODUCTS & SERVICES
DCL has the right experience in the design, tuning and bonding of Projected Capacitive (PCAP) Touch Panels for all applications.
While we leverage existing designs whenever possible, most successful results come from purposefully designing your touch screen user interface to your application and use case requirements. Doing so ensures a high performing and priced right touch panel solution.
We make it EASY to design, prototype and deliver the specific touch solution for your application.
Key Elements of a Great Design
The cover lens, or front surface of a touch panel, represents the look and feel of your product. This is the first surface your customers are likely to engage and possibly where perceptions of quality and user experience start to emerge.
Cover lens design elements include:
Material choices based on durability and optical expectations
Shapes, masking, artwork and logos
Touch sensor controller choice is an important element in a well designed touch enabled solution. Not all controllers or makers should be considered equal. Application, use case and end user experience should define the best design choices.
Important considerations include:
Support for rain, chlorinated, salt water and other conductive liquids rejection, heavy glove use, multiple touch points
Interfacing requirements such as I2c or USB
Custom flex tail shapes and connection termination type
Longevity, price points and engineering support
The firmware of the selected controller can be adjusted to ensure the touchscreen delivers the best performance for its intended application. Also known as tuning, firmware modifications may be required to support:
Specific cover lens materials and thicknesses
Gloved finger inputs of various material types
Rejection of false touches caused by water droplets or electrical interferences
Improved immunity to EMI through software filtering
and other custom use case features
DCL works directly with all touch controller makers and our touch factory engineers are of the best in the industry.
