Capacitive touch sensor display simplifies device design

A capacitive touch sensor display that provides a more intuitive interface to ease and accelerate user interactions has been developed by VCC. The LED-based CTH series capacitive touch sensor display combines graphic interactive control with color identification to make the interface more user-friendly. Utilizing sensitive capacitive touch sensing technology, the CTH series simplifies designs and offers cost savings by eliminating the need for a traditional switch.


The LED display produces a high-optical clarity, and is offered with or without a wide variety of standard graphic overlays and colors. VCC can also develop custom icons to meet most any application requirement. Offered in a wide variety of colors including red, yellow, blue, pure green and white, the LED back-lit CTH series. The robust design has no moving parts, improving reliability and increasing the operational life.

Featuring a through hole design, the capacitive touch sensor display is available in one standard size 15x15x11.0mm with an industry standard pitch of 0.100″.

“Featuring translucent icons illuminated with different colored LEDs, the user friendly CTH series display offers superior device interaction by communicating a singular action to users such as on/off, alarm status, and more,” said Sannah Vinding, Director of Product Development and Marketing at VCC. “The integrated functionality of the compact CTH series capacitive touch sensor display eliminates the need for designing-in a traditional switch. Unlike mechanical membrane switches or mechanical push buttons, capacitive touch keypads have no moving parts so there is nothing to wear out.”

The CTH series is used in a wide range of applications including appliances, consumer equipment, gaming devices, industrial control displays, media players, medical devices, mobile communication devices, PDAs, point of sale terminals, portable instruments, touch screen monitors and more.
