Resistive Touch


A resistive touchscreen works on a number of layers and when the layers are pressed together, a touchpoint is registered.

A Resistive touchscreen requires a touch with a certain amount of force applied to its surface. It consists of a flexible film upper layer and a rigid lower layer. Resistive touchscreens can be operated with a finger, a fingernail, a stylus or any other pointing object. However this technology is rapidly disappearing and we address some of the challenges why in our article on RTP technology.

  • Low production cost
  • High resistence to dust and water
  • best suited for handwriting recognition

Differences between PCAP and resistive touch

How resistive touch works

A resistive touch screen consists of a flexible film upper layer and a rigid lower layer which when pressed join the layers together to complete the circuit and register a touch.
