Omron Electronic Components introduces its B5V-1422 disk jog switch that offers a single user interface with which to scroll through lists and make choices. Five tactile selector switches (a center push button and four peripheral push points) are combined with a rotational jog feature. Using both functions, users can navigate through lists and then make choices with the pushbutton switch. It is available with or without four red LEDs that can provide edge highlighting on the periphery of the jog dial. The switch uses two Hall Effect IC sensors, and it combines them with five tactile switch points. Applications include MP3 players, cell phones, digital cameras, PDAs with MP3 functions, hand-held games, hand-held GPS and test equipment.
