At Electronica 2010, Zytronic will launch an addition to its range of touch controllers designed to enhance user experience in ultra-large-format applications.

Developed for its proprietary range of touch sensors, the touch controller offers features such as dual-touch output for linkage to multi-touch or gesture-recognition software, Windows 7 plug and play, in-field firmware upgradeability and reduced PCB footprint.

Visitors to the booth will experience Zytronic’s latest touch solutions, including a 50in (127cm) example of its large-form-factor projected capacitive screens in the form of a dual-touch Zytouch sensor.

This can be used with LCD or rear projection systems up to 82in (208cm) in size, for applications such as street vending or interactive digital signage.

In addition, a central podium featuring a 26in (66cm) custom Zybrid sensor will demonstrate a new driver function, which allows multiple touch zones and buttons to be defined on a single sensor.

The unit will also serve as an example of how the technology supports today’s ergonomic and styling trends such as bezel-free designs and screen-printed features.

The booth will also feature a quad touchscreen display highlighting the various capabilities of PCT and using Zytronic’s customisable Zybrid sensors.

These include a 15in (38cm) LCD unit that will demonstrate how PCT can be optically bonded for extreme outdoor applications where sunlight readability and thermal management is of paramount importance.

Two further exhibits will demonstrate PCT’s through-glass sensing capability, which extends the application range of touchscreen technology; and how, with the use of a mirrored-glass front, a touch display can be used to create an interactive smart-mirror for use in appliance and retail applications.

Completing the feature display, a printed, ground and polished Zybrid touchscreen combined with a 12in (30cm) LCD and providing an additional array of touch-sensitive buttons will demonstrate how PCT supports new levels of system integration.

This solution is expected to be of interest to designers of public touch user-interface applications such as industrial computing, security and self-service terminals, as it allows a full drag-and-drop touchscreen to be combined with a keyboard, pin pad or hotkeys located outside the viewable area of the LCD.

This simplifies integration and reduces peripheral devices and mechanical buttons for greater reliability, reduced cost and enhanced appearance.
