Hi Zbatt, that e-mail is valid except there is a period (.) at the end of the address. Try again without the period at the end.

Hi Terry, yes, it is possible to successfully ignore and recover from a large seawater splash. The "thin-film" water case described in the article is meant to cover this condition. I don't know of any off-the-shelf modules available though.

Hi, Question about the Marine Small-boat environment: Do you know of any successful systems or products that will ignore and recover from a significant seawater splash? Has research been done on this? I'd like to build touch-sensitive dashboard elements for small craft. (The big guys are sitting in a pilot house).. Regards, Terry King ...On the Mediterranean in Italy terry@yourduino.com

I had not really considered the effect of water on a touch screen, but your explanation did a good job of both highlighting the problem and showing the various methods available to mitigate the effect. I learned something new today. Thank you.

NEXT UPCOMING BROADCAST
In conjunction with unveiling of EE Times’ Silicon 60 list, journalist & Silicon 60 researcher Peter Clarke hosts a conversation on startups in the electronics industry. One of Silicon Valley's great contributions to the world has been the demonstration of how the application of entrepreneurship and venture capital to electronics and semiconductor hardware can create wealth with developments in semiconductors, displays, design automation, MEMS and across the breadth of hardware developments. But in recent years concerns have been raised that traditional venture capital has turned its back on hardware-related startups in favor of software and Internet applications and services. Panelists from incubators join Peter Clarke in debate.
