Scroll Ring Interface has the Feel of a Capacitive Touch Switch
The SimScroll interface from White Electronic Designs (WEDC) is a circular switch array using the company’s SimTouch switch technology. It is suitable for products requiring effective navigation of large menu lists. Typical applications include universal remote control, MP3 players and A/V media system control. Using WEDC’s conductive ink technology, designers can create user interfaces limited only by their imagination. SimScroll interface uses a flexible overlay laminated to the switch circuit. Low actuation force and extremely short travel distance creates the experience of a capacitive touch switch. The switch construction can use a variety of overlay materials to provide a smooth glass-like finish or brushed metallic for a stainless steel look. Activation pads can be screened directly on the overlay or on an additional polyester layer.
