Display Solution AG introduced Evervision Electronics Europe's new IPCT (Improved Projected Capacitive Touchpanel) Evaluation Tool, which allows users to adjust the key parameter in order to integrate the PCAP Panel into the application.
The adjustment tool comes with a USB Bridge Board controlling the IPCT from a notebook via the USB and a Software which can be easily installed and operated with its intuitive interface.
It offers users the ability to change the values for Threshold, Gain, Offset X and Offset Y. If a cover glass is required, the IPCT can have the function as a touch sensor and this adaption can be realized by adjusting the parameters. Also the use of gloves is possible using this adjustment procedure.
The X / Y parameter adjustment can become necessary when using the cover glass. The weaker touch signals close to the edges leads to the reduction of active area of the IPCT. The X / Y offset compensates for this phenomenon in order to obtain the full active area again.
Replay available now: A handful of emerging network technologies are competing to be the preferred wide-area connection for the Internet of Things. All claim lower costs and power use than cellular but none have wide deployment yet. Listen in as proponents of leading contenders make their case to be the metro or national IoT network of the future. Rick Merritt, EE Times Silicon Valley Bureau Chief, moderators this discussion.
