"Ruggedize Your Touch Panel
" explains the issues involved with designing a touch enabled product for ruggedize environments like industrial controls, marine use, oil field maintence, outdoor operation, and others. It includes an explanation of the process of chemical strengthening, the various adhesives used in a display/touch assembly, what causes birefringence, and other relevant issues.
Co-authored with Texas Instruments Systems Applications Engineer Yiding Luo, "Take your HMI design to the next level...
" explains how to use the Texas Instruments CapTIvateTM
touch engine on an MSP430TM
microcontroller in conjunction with a transparent touch sensor to implement an inexpensive touch solution without the need for a dedicated touch controller.
Written by Tony Gray, our Director of Touch Technology, this book covers ALL aspects of projected capacitive touch sensors including basic principles, the physics of PCAP, capacitance measurements, touch sensor materials and
construction, electrical noise, software drivers, and testing. "Projected Capacitive Touch" is the only book available on projected capacitive touch. It is targeted at working engineers who are implementing touch into their products as well as anyone else with an interest in how touch screens work.
