Key Features & Benefits
Designing the optimal touchscreen was never easier. Sense consists of six distinct modules, each of them optimized to help you deliver high-quality touchscreens faster than anyone else. Each step of the flow is intuitive and exactly what the designer needs. New functions of Sense include resistance computation and automatic report extraction, new analysis types for mutual- and self- capacitive sensors as well as for floating and earth models, modification options for the finger or stylus dimensions, and an enhanced library of ready-to-use patterns.
All these features will smoothen the workflow of the touch sensor designer, enable better and deeper analyses and provide the manufacturer with accurate information for better design decisions.
