Cubbison’s Touch Screen Technology


Touch screens are widely used on a daily basis; on your
cell phone, while your checking out at the grocery store, renting a
movie at the kiosk, or even at the gas station.Touch screens are a
convenient technology we encounter every day.

The first touch screen was a capacitive touch screen developed
by E.A. Johnson at the Royal Radar Establishment in Malvern, UK
around 1965. From their beginning, touch screens have come a long
way and  are now used by many OEM’s for their interface
solutions. Check out the various types of touch screens on our
website by clicking the following link http://www.cubbison.com/products/touch-screens.aspx.

Two of the most common touch screens are the resistive
and
the capacitive technologies.  See the chart
below to better understand the differences between the two
technologies.
