SCROLL RING INTERFACE
White Electronic Designs Corp. has announced the SimScroll scroll ring interface, a circular switch array that mimics the type of capacitive touch switch found on iPods at a fraction of the cost. The interface is said to make it easy to navigate large menu lists such as those found on Universal Remote Controls, MP3 players and A/V media system controls. Because it has a one-piece sealed membrane switch, it is also suitable for medical and industrial applications.
The interface design uses the company’s patented conductive ink technology, SimTouch, with a flexible overlay laminated to the switch circuit.
