About Capacitive Touch Screens

Capacitive touch is currently the most popular touch screen option for TFT LCDs on the market.

Capacitive touch technology allows for an enhanced product user interface since it supports gestures and proximity sensing. Unlike resistive touch screens which rely on pressure, capacitive touch responds to an electric current and can handle multi-finger touch points. This means that capacitive touchscreens can be used with your bare finger and it supports gestures such as pinch-to-zoom or swipe.

Capacitive touch displays are well suited for many products including:

  • Wearables
    • Smartwatches, sports and fitness products, home health devices
  • Cameras
    • Action cameras, dash cams and back up cameras
  • Mobile devices
    • Smart phones, GPS navigators, hand-held radios
  • Home automation
    • Thermostats, smart appliances, alarm and surveillance systems
