The DFA sensor’s variable input force allows for additional, or new functionalities, such as the ability to navigate device menus and perform other operations via single-finger touch. The DFA sensor also allows for correct haptic feedback when the force reaches a pre-selected activation point, a feature that obviates false touch situations.
In multi-touch applications, the DFA’s proportional force sensing feature can determine the ratio of forces between presses (i.e. harder press to left or right), which can have benefits in improved control, especially in gaming applications. The distributed force array sensors are customizable, cost effective and low power. They are delivered with control electronics and software.
