Microsoft looks to bring back the light pen

"A light pen typically takes the form of a stylus which contains a small photoreceptor in its tip. This stylus tracks the light emitted by activated phosphor on a cathode-ray tube display - although later models work with liquid-crystal displays too - in order to figure out where on the screen the user is pointing." via bit-tech

Use capacitive sensing to Implement reliable liquid level sensing

"Capacitive sensing technology has become the primary technology underlying touch interfaces.  However, capacitive sensing is not limited to creating dynamic buttons and sliders on different appliances for the user interface. There are numerous applications where capacitive sensing can replace traditional ways of implementing specific functions like liquid level sensing, humidity sensing, and sensing of metallic objects. This article will discuss how to implement liquid level measurement using capacitive sensing technology." via EE Times

Projected capacitive touch - ITO layout evolution

"As one after another handheld consumer electronics gadgets such as tablets and smartphones emerges in the market, touch panel technology, with its capability to enable smaller devices, lower manufacturing cost and intuitive user experience on small screens, is no longer confined to conventional industrial/commercial applications like kiosks, KTV jukeboxes, machines at production lines, POS and ATM. It is gradually replacing traditional keyboard/mouse as the major interface for man-machine communication and interaction on personal devices. DisplaySearch forecasts that global touch control module shipment will reach 1.4 billion units by 2015 with a revenue totaling US$9 billion. Japan's Fuji Keizai also estimates that by 2016, the market will grow 110.5% from 2011 with a total output at JPY775.3 billion." via DigiTimes

Chipworks Analysis: Atmel’s MXT 540E Touch-Screen Controller

Image via Electronic Design

"Given the extremely competitive nature of touch-screen controller ICs, Atmel offers no data sheets or major performance parameter data on the E-series, and it only provides a brief product summary on the MXT224. But a Chipworks analysis shows that about 41% of the MXT540E’s die consists of analog circuitry. The rest comprises digital circuitry for the processor, memory, and I/O circuitry." via Electronic Design

Glass enabling future touch technology

"For projective capacitive touch, according to Hollis, the conventional discrete touch module needs an extra ayer of glass with both sides pattenred with ITO. But now the OGS integrates the touch sensor and cover class into one to do without the thickness of an extra sheet of glass. This not only reduces weight but also simplifies the materials and manufacturing process to decrease panel thickness. It enhances light transmission, and the production process is streamlined." via DigiTimes / Corning

"A Weak Display Week?"

"It seems that the sector, or at least what the show represented as the ‘face’ of the sector, is now more about the maturing of technologies, with awards, for example, for best panel from LG, best P-CAP touch sensor from Occular and Samsung’s latest OLED display. Conversation was just as likely to be about achieving economies of scale, better ways to manufacture or the trend for vertical integration of the manufacturing chain rather than the unveiling of lots of revolutionary product technology or innovative applications and GUI approaches using the technology." via andersDX
