TouchNetix Introduces Innovative TactoSense Button Solution


Trondheim, Norway, 30th May 2024 – TouchNetix is proud to announce a groundbreaking new touch/force button-enabling solution - TactoSense. TactoSense enables combinations of touch and force sensing, alongside haptic triggering, and LED feedback. This is all easily facilitated by aXioms single chip technology. Using this solution, customers can integrate buttons, button bars, sliders, or joysticks within a variety of smart surfaces and materials.


Facilitated by aXiom’s patented force sensing technology, TactoSense supports up to 26 buttons concurrently and customers can easily tune specific buttons to be force and/or touch enabled, in addition to combinations of multi-touch, multi-force and proximity detection.

‘TactoSense offers exciting opportunities for customers to integrate tactile buttons with a mechanical feel, all without complicated integration or prohibitive costs,” commented Peter Sleeman, Engineering Director at TouchNetix. “This technology can be integrated within a variety of touch surface materials, including plastic, leatherette and even metal, making it an attractive solution for the automotive, industrial and consumer sectors.”  


TactoSense Demo Kits are currently available for customers to experience. A short video detailing the demo’s functionality can be found below.
