Leave a comment

An LCD module can use two different types of touchscreen technology: resistive and capacitive. Both possess distinct qualities and functions, which manufacturers consider when determining which one better suits their manufacturing needs. Because the competition for technology devices gets tougher every day, you need to keep up by using the highest quality parts and most advanced features. Learning the difference between resistive and capacitive touchscreen technologies will help you make an informed decision.

Resistive Touchscreens: The Need for Pressure

Widely used today, resistive touchscreen technology relies on resistance, thus the name. It requires a slight pressure to work. Devices that use this technology consists of two thin layers with a thin gap separating them. These layers, which have a coating on one side, face each other. Read more from this blog.
