Improving the user experience is one of the driving forces behind innovations in touchscreen technology. The introduction of projected capacitance touchscreen devices from the older resistive style opened up a new world of options and a vastly improved interface for users. Projected capacitive technology enables unlimited multitouch interfaces with gesturing for a smooth and seamless user experience. Mobile device manufacturers have recognized the benefits to a user interface (UI) powered by capacitive touch, and most handheld devices deliver touch performance at a level that would have been unthinkable just a few years ago. Now, engineers and developers focus on faster response times, better accuracy, and higher signal-to-noise ratios (SNR) to provide a more innovative user experience (UX) in their products.
