The purpose of this whitepaper is to address a common problem many engineering teams face when creating a new product: that the ubiquitous touchscreen is often overlooked in the initial design phase, in comparison to the application’s core function, resulting in unwarranted costs down the line in development, production, sales, and maintenance.
In order to discuss the touchscreen integration problem, capacitive touchscreen construction and touch detection methods are investigated. Common touchscreen integration pitfalls will be addressed and explained. Then, metallized projective capacitive touch (MPCT) screen technology are explained and compared to common capacitive touchscreens. The author then dives deeper into MPCT technology and why it helps solve the touchscreen integration problem.
