The world's thinnest glass sensor achieves a total thickness of only 0.6 mm
The world's thinnest glass sensor, only 0.03 mm in thickness, made it possible to manufacture the "aimic touch" panels. In addition to the thinness, the sensor is also flexible, facilitating bonding with cover glass, which, in turn, strengthens the product itself. The flexibility, along with the possibility of using thin frames characteristic to glass sensor, permits a great variety of product design. The total thickness of the touch panel, including the cover glass, is as low as 0.6 mm, making it ideal for use in mobile phones that require thinness and lightweight.
Simple, low-cost structure for a variety of designs and large sizes
The high-sensitivity capacitive touch panel has a simple structure consisting of vitrified and laminated X and Y electrodes, with the X electrode also serving as the electromagnetic shield. Eliminating any additional shield reduces costs greatly, achieving low prices even in the test production phase. The simple structure also permits production of large-sized units and is compatible with either glass- or resin-cover windows. These features contribute to the freedom of product design.
