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.
Drones are, in essence, flying autonomous vehicles. Pros and cons surrounding drones today might well foreshadow the debate over the development of self-driving cars. In the context of a strongly regulated aviation industry, "self-flying" drones pose a fresh challenge. How safe is it to fly drones in different environments? Should drones be required for visual line of sight – as are piloted airplanes? Join EE Times' Junko Yoshida as she moderates a panel of drone experts.
