Projected‐capacitive touch has grown more than 100‐fold in revenue since the iPhone was introduced in 2007, and it shows no signs of slowing down. This article describes many of the design and application challenges that must be faced when integrating projected‐capacitive touch into a device, with a particular focus on the importance of the controller's signal‐to‐noise ratio. 

P‐190: High SNR Multi‐Touch Capacitance Touch‐screen Controller with Haptics Support

A high performance multi‐touch capacitive touch‐screen controller has been developed which is capable of supporting multiple sensor types, gloves, small‐tipped conductive stylus, and low‐latency

Compressive Sensing for Sparse Touch Detection on Capacitive Touch Screens

This paper proposes an alternative compressive sensing based approach to exploit the sparsity of simultaneous touches with respect to the number of sensor nodes to achieve similar levels of responsiveness.

31.2: Eliminating Ghost Touches on a Self‐Capacitive Touch‐Screen

When two or more touches are detected on a self‐capacitive touch‐screen, positional ambiguities known as “ghost” touches are created.

Low energy and latency touch detection using group testing

A novel touch detection scheme on a capacitive touch screen with reduced sensing latency and low power consumption is presented, which enables reduction in energy consumption via sensing fewer number of measurements compared to the standard approach.

One Glass Single ITO Layer Solution for Large Size Projected-Capacitive Touch Panels

One glass single ITO layer solution has been demonstrated for large size projected-capacitive touch panels. Using simple touch sensors and algorithm, the proposed solution can effectively solve the

Low power detection on capacitive touch screens

A novel, power efficient and low-latency method for detecting touch locations on capacitive touch screens using group testing for touch sensing and location detection and a decoding method based on Tikhonov regularization are proposed.

Multi-touch points detection for capacitive touch panel

An algorithm is proposed that reduces the noise-induced detection error and improves the detection accuracy with partial touch signal information and utilizes the touch signal features to first detect touch points and then calculates the real touch coordinates based on the weighting average technique.

The mechanism of false (ghost) touch due to external electric field is explored based on the working principle and critical conditions behind the ghost touch phenomena are identified.

A review of technologies for sensing contact location on the surface of a display

This paper provides a broad overview of all touchscreen technologies in use today, organized into 13 categories with 38 variations, and more information is provided on projected capacitive than on any of the other touch technologies that are discussed.

Dual functional transparent film for proximity and pressure sensing

A transparent, matrix-structure dual functional capacitive sensor which integrates the capability of proximity and pressure sensing in one device, and the excellent spatial resolution offered by the isolated response of capacitive pixels enables to realize precise location identification of approaching objects and loaded pressure with fast response, high stability and high reversibility.



Projected‐Capacitive Touch Technology

Projected capacitive (pro-cap), the touch technology used in the iPhone touch screen, has become the first choice for many small-to-medium (<10-in.) touch-equipped products now in development.

DiamondTouch: a multi-user touch technology

A technique for creating a touch-sensitive input device which allows multiple, simultaneous users to interact in an intuitive fashion and results obtained with a small prototype device are presented.

TouchCuts and TouchZoom: enhanced target selection for touch displays using finger proximity sensing

Two techniques are designed that facilitate the selection of small icons, by detecting the finger proximity above the display surface, and expanding the target as the finger approaches, and improve performance in comparison to both the computer mouse and a baseline touch-based target acquisition technique.

The generalized perceived input point model and how to double touch accuracy by extracting fingerprints

The traditional 2D model of touch is switched to a model that considers touch a phenomenon in 3-space, which can be used to make touch interfaces more reliable, to pack up to 3.32 > 10 times more controls into the same surface, or to bring touch input to very small mobile devices.

Rock & rails: extending multi-touch interactions with shape gestures to enable precise spatial manipulations

A set of interactions, called Rock & Rails, that augment existing direct touch manipulations with shape-based gestures, thus providing on-demand gain control, occlusion avoidance, and separation of constraints in 2D manipulation tasks.

Pen + touch = new tools

A division of labor between pen and touch is advocated: the pen writes, touch manipulates, and the combination of pen + touch yields new tools that helps the UI designer to avoid encumbrances such as physical buttons, persistent modes, or widgets that detract from the user's focus on the workspace.
