Rapid prototype capacitive touch keypad service
Blue Sparq have announced a unique capacitive touch interface prototyping service for design engineers.
This capacitive touch technology can sense through any non-conductive material, allowing the designer to place buttons anywhere, even behind curved surfaces! RapidKeypads.com was created to supply high-quality rapid prototype capacitive touch switch solutions, along with driver electronics, in as little as 5 days! This service provides tremendous value to designers who want a futuristic "look and feel" for their new or existing products in record-breaking time.
"As a high-speed product developer, I simply couldn't wait the industry standard 4-7 weeks for a capacitive touch keypad. Since there are rapid prototyping services capable of making parts for every other aspect of a product's design, the gap was clear, so we created www.RapidKeypads.com . In order to offer such a service, there were two challenges: the first was replacing the silver ink conductive layer that is traditionally printed using a silk screen process with a high-speed digital printing method; the second was to make a universal capacitive touch driver IC that could be easily configured by a design engineer having no previous capacitive touch design experience," says Jameel Ahed, President of Blue Sparq, Inc.
RapidKeypads.com supplies the engineer with a complete capacitive touch interface that includes a custom capacitive touch keypad along with the necessary touch switch driver electronics. The Fast Touch electronics system is complete; the engineer doesn't have to write a single line of code. The feature-rich Fast Touch 16 Eval Kit is easily configurable and provides various communications options (RS232, I2C, SPI, and USB), tactile feedback, audio feedback, and state-of-the-art lighting control.
Blue Sparq, Inc. was founded in 2008 with the aim of providing prototype design and manufacturing services for individuals and businesses wishing to design new or to revamp pre-existing product lines. Blue Sparq's innovative approach to problem solving has prompted 9 patent filings in less than 2 years.
