    The “Transparent” Membrane Switch
    What is a Touch Screen?
    A touch screen (also called a touchscreen or touch panel) is a visual display controlled either by a stylus/pen or by one or more fingers, using single or multi-touch gestures. The touch screen enables the user to interact directly with the display’s content, instead of using a mouse, touchpad or other device.
    Originally designed for use in industrial applications, touch screens are now being used everywhere from warehouse inventory controls to restaurant order entry. More and more we see touch screens being adapted to our personal lives.
    Touch screens help provide a good method by which we can utilize nested programs within electronic devices. No longer are we confined to the limited number of discrete buttons found on conventional membrane switches. With touch screens used in combination with high-resolution digital displays and nested programming we have literally millions of switch options available at the touch of a finger.

    Flexible electronics, also known as flex circuits, is a technology for assembling electronic circuits

    by mounting electronic devices on flexible plastic substrates, such as polyimide, PEEK or transparent conductive polyester[1] film. Additionally, flex circuits can be screen printed silver circuits on polyester. Flexible electronic assemblies may be manufactured using identical components used for rigid printed circuit boards, allowing the board to conform to a desired shape, or to flex during its use. These flexible printed circuits (FPC) are made with a photolithographic technology. An alternative way of making flexible foil circuits or flexible flat cables (FFCs) is laminating very thin (0.07 mm) copper strips in between two layers of PET. These PET layers, typically 0.05 mm thick, are coated with an adhesive which is thermosetting, and will be activated during the lamination process. FPCs and FFCs have several advantages in many applications:

    • Tightly assembled electronic packages, where electrical connections are required in 3 axes, such as cameras (static application).
    • Electrical connections where the assembly is required to flex during its normal use, such as folding cell phones (dynamic application).
    • Electrical connections between sub-assemblies to replace wire harnesses, which are heavier and bulkier, such as in cars, rockets and satellites.
    • Electrical connections where board thickness or space constraints are driving factors.
    Flex circuits are often used as connectors in various applications where flexibility, space savings, or production constraints limit the serviceability of rigid circuit boards or hand wiring. A common application of flex circuits is in computer keyboards; most keyboards use flex circuits for the switch matrix.

    How do you reduce your Printed Circuit Board (PCB) cost and streamlined manufacturing process?

    In LCD fabrication, glass is used as a substrate. If thin flexible plastic or metal foil is used as the substrate instead, the entire system can be flexible, as the film deposited on top of the substrate is usually very thin, on the order of a few micrometers.

    Organic light-emitting diodes (OLEDs) are normally used instead of a back-light for flexible displays, making a flexible organic light-emitting diode display.

    Most flexible circuits are passive wiring structures that are used to interconnect electronic components such as integrated circuits, resistor, capacitors and the like, however some are used only for making interconnections between other electronic assemblies either directly or by means of connectors.

    In the automotive field, flexible circuits are used in instrument panels, under-hood controls, circuits to be concealed within the headliner of the cabin, and in ABS systems. In computer peripherals flexible circuits are used on the moving print head of printers, and to connect signals to the moving arm carrying the read/write heads of disk drives. Consumer electronics devices make use of flexible circuits in cameras, personal entertainment devices, calculators, or exercise monitors.

    Flexible circuits are found in industrial and medical devices where many interconnections are required in a compact package. Cellular telephones are another widespread example of flexible circuits.

    Flexible solar cells have been developed for powering satellites. These cells are lightweight, can be rolled up for launch, and are easily deployable, making them a good match for the application. They can also be sewn into backpacks or outerwear.[2]

    Flexible circuit structures
    There are a few basic constructions of flexible circuits but there is significant variation between the different types in terms of their construction. Following is a review of the most common types of flexible circuit constructions

    By Epec Engineered Technologies

    In quarter 3 of 2013 alone Apple sold 31.2 million iPhones. It's safe to say that there are millions upon millions of end products that use touch panels for user navigation. We've come a long way in technology but how do these touch panels actually work?

    Resistive Touch Panels

    Today there are over 20 different technologies that revolve around touch panels. A common type of touch panels are resistive touch panels (RTPs) which in 2012 made up approximately 26% of the market. These work by combining two conductive electrode layers separated by very small transparent insulation spacers also known as spacer dots. When pressure is applied from a finger or stylus it brings the two layers into contact (See Figure 1). This results in a drop in voltage at the contact point which is then detected by a controller. There are three types of resistive touch panels each with their own unique attributes, 4-wire, 5-wire, and 8-wire.

    Contact being made to Resistive Touch Panel
    Figure 1: Contact being made to Resistive Touch Panel.

    Although there are three different types of resistive touch panels each work under the same principle, applied pressure brings two conductive layers together. The 4-wire construction consists of two separate layers; one layer carries the X and the other that carries the Y. A touch (applied pressure) will bring the two layers together and the contact point will then be calculated. The disadvantage of a 4-wire is if the top layer becomes scratched or ripped the X coordinate will no longer function and will need to be replaced. A 5-wire touch panel is constructed with a film that is suspended over the top layer and voltage is simultaneously measured at each corner. When a user touches the top surface it becomes in contact with the bottom layer causing a change in resistance which would then be calculated by the controller. Since the top layer is acting only as a probe it will still function if the top surface becomes scratched or torn unlike the 4-wire making it a more durable design.

    The last type is the 8-wire and this is based on the 4-wire technology principle by adding an additional 4-wire set. Having the additional set doubles the level of electrodes and in turn will increase the overall accuracy and reduces drifts so you won't have to recalibrate as much as you would with a 4 or 5 wire touch panel. The general benefits of resistive touch panels include lowest costs in comparison to other types of touch panels. Additionally they offer low power consumption and are pressure actuated with a finger, gloves, stylus etc. RTPs are also resistant to external factors such as water and dust so if the end product were to be used in an outdoor application or in a machine shop it won't create a false actuation. Here are some limitations to consider when deciding whether or not RTPs are suitable for your application. You may be more familiar with multi-touch panels but the standard for resistive touch panels is one-touch. There are some controller companies working on multi-touch technology with resistive touch panels but again, it's not the standard.

    was designed specifically for touch screen market and is capable of scanning large variery of products and applications. Phoenix Touch can scan minimum 30 µm line/space width of conductive traces on touch screen panels and is suitable for all types of designs.

    The system's new optical technology Microlight™ provides flexible light coverage by combining superior image with customizable detection requirements.

    Equipped with the state-of-the-art image acquisition and advanced software capabilities, the Phoenix product family has proven exceptional detection combined with a well- balanced, non-critical defects rate.

    Another limitation is the relatively low light transmission which approximately runs between 76 - 82% so if your graphics within the end product is a priority you may want to reconsider another type of panel. The touch life is lower for resistive touch panels because they use ITO film as the conductive material which is less durable than other options. Repeated pushing and selecting over time will create fractures and can degrade the touch panels' ability to operate. With a 4-wire and 8-wire expect 1 million actuations in one location because they both share the same technology. The 5-wire will allow 10 million actuations. The standard sizes for all range from 2.8" – 21" with additional custom sizes available.

    Infrared Touch Panels

    Another type of touch panel, are the infrared touch panels (ITPs). Infrared technology consists of infrared LEDs (Light emitting diode) and light sensors that are placed on the perimeter of the bezel. LEDs transmit beams of light that run parallel to the assigned light sensor create a light grid. Anything that disrupts the light or reduces the light such as a finger or stylus will register a touch (See Figure 2); the controller will distinguish where contact was made.
