New at Digi-Key, the Interlink Electronics’ FSR™ 400 Round Force Sensing Resister

Interlink Electronics' FSR™ 400 series is part of the single zone Force Sensing Resistor™ family. Force sensing resistors, or FSRs, are robust polymer thick film (PTF) devices that exhibit a decrease in resistance with increase in force applied to the surface of the sensor. This force sensitivity is optimized for use in human touch control of electronic devices such as automotive electronics, medical systems, and in industrial and robotics applications.

‘Optically Bonded’ Projective Capacitive Touch Screens deliver enhanced readability to TFT displays.

Today many display products are required to work in extreme conditions where the readability and robustness of the display and associated touch screen are critical. Typical parameters that have to be met are resistance to moisture and dust/dirt ingress, scratch resistance and shock/vibration. Furthermore any reduction in the readability of content on the display is considered unacceptable.

iSMART TFTs – incredible specification, unbelievable price

Noritake Itron has introduced a range of iSMART TFT Modules to enable users to develop their application in a matter of days with limited experience of TFTs or programming. The modules can operate as host or slave with 8 bit CPU hosts where communication traffic needs to be minimized. This achieved using a unique object-oriented programming language.
