Force-sensing on capacitive touchscreens is becoming critical in automotive applications. It’s needed in systems where the user is at risk from distraction or where confirmation of user intent is required. TouchNetix aXiom user interface chips have native support for concurrent touch & force sensing which, coupled with TouchNetix proprietary force-sensing technology provides a highly accurate, reproducible, and reliable result.

Our force-sensing technology opens up new applications for capacitive touch by adding mouse-over type functionality, providing an ‘extra layer’ of certainty of the users intent.
