Mechanical Keypad Replacement with Capacitive Touch

Last Updated:

Gone is the era of mechanical push buttons and membrane switches as more and more of these interfaces are being replaced by innovative capacitive touch sensing technology. This new technology is not only fancier and easier to use but also more robust. Most designs will require only minor modifications to accommodate capacitive touch buttons. This in turn dictates the designers to come up with a ready-to-use, robust and a low touch drop-in replacement for those mechanical buttons.
