The latest addition to the andersDX family of embedded display platforms, and the first to feature a multi-touch PCAP display, the DX4 streamlines the path to iPad-like user experience for non-consumer electronic devices.
The popularity and ever-reducing price points of touch screen input technology has seen widespread adoption of multi touch displays in a host of ‘real world’ environments – environments where they may be subject to deliberate or accidental damage or where they may be expected to operate despite the on-screen presence of fluids or dirt. As a result touch screen manufacturers are working hard to develop cost-effective solutions that are resistant to damage and that can identify and reject the presence of foreign substances.
Further evidence of the amazing growth in use of touch screens comes in a recent report into the rapidly expanding market for touch controller ICs.
According to market research firm IHS iSuppli, 2.4 billion touch controller ICs will be shipped in 2015, a staggering 277% increase on the 865 million shipped in 2010. And the same report suggests that 1.7 billion units will be shipped in 2012, a 28% jump over 2011.
Viewing angle is generally defined as the maximum angle at which a display can be viewed with ‘acceptable visual performance’ – for example without losing significant brightness or experiencing significant colour shifts. In some cases small viewing angles are acceptable and, indeed, desirable – think about a laptop PC where the user doesn’t want others to be able to easily see the screen.
The iPad generation has led many of our customers to demand a similar look and feel in their medical and industrial devices. Attentive as ever to market demands, andersDX is pleased to announce a solution.
Our newest line of high-quality PCAP-integrated TFT display modules enables the seamless addition of P-CAP touchscreen functionality to industrial and medical devices. These display modules are ideal for non-consumer device makers who are looking to achieve iPad-like look and feel for their devices – but who want to avoid the technical and commercial headaches of integrating touch with TFT displays.
Another day made of glass...
As we said in our recent blog post we - and apparently 17 million others - loved Corning's original 'A Day Made of Glass' online video for the insight that it gave into what could be possible with touch screens of the future. Now the company is hoping to emulate this success with 'A Day Made of Glass 2: Unpacked'.
