QTC Clear is a force sensing material can be used to create Force
Sensitive touch screens that can replace current Resistive touch screen
technologies or enhance Capacitive ones to create solutions with more features
such as 3D input. The QTC Clear layer is 6-8 microns thick with a transparency
that is similar to the existing touch screen technologies. This is sandwiched
between two layers of Indium Tin Oxide, which is sandwiched between two hard
sheets, typically glass. It is sensitive that it can detect deflections of
a few microns so that the top surface can be rigid and robust, e.g. glass,
unlike current Resistive designs that have to be soft enough to deform easily
making them susceptible to damage.
Independent science safety company Underwriters Laboratories is providing new guidance for manufacturers about how to follow the latest IEC standards for implementing safety features in programmable logic controllers.
Automakers are adding greater digital capabilities to their design and engineering activities to promote collaboration among staff and suppliers, input consumer feedback, shorten product development cycles, and meet evolving end-use needs.
