Force sensors in gaming mouse provide intuitive HMI experience

Force sensors in gaming mouse provide intuitive HMI experience
Peratech has announced integration into what it claims to be the world’s first mouse with force-sensitive analogue buttons. The Z from Swiftpoint is the first gaming mouse with pivot, tilt and roll, and utilises Peratech sensors for ‘Deep Click’ buttons, enabling users to access dozens of different button actions while barely moving their fingers. Peratech’s Quantum Tunnelling Composite (QTC) Single Point sensors incorporated into the mouse enable faster, more intuitive and precise movements compared with other mice.

Force sensing broadens its application horizons

Force sensing broadens its application horizons
Peratech’s force sensing technology is moving from the lab into consumer products and beyond. By Sally Ward-Foxton. British startup Peratech, whose QTC force sensitive material allows force sensors to screen print onto a range of substrates, is starting to see its first QTC-enabled consumer products on the market. Following investment in 2014, a new executive team was brought on board and the company’s business model changed from licensing their IP to creating and selling products for consumer electronics devices.

Unique approach to force sensing solutions for next-gen 3D HMIs

Unique approach to force sensing solutions for next-gen 3D HMIs
Peratech, innovators in force sensing solutions, presented at the recent Micro Nano MEMS 2015 exhibition in Birmingham, UK. Peratech makes force touch solutions for single point of contact sensing as well as single and multi touch array sensors. The latter can even be located behind capacitive screens as the technology is sensitive enough to detect changes in the force applied through thin glass. Tailored solutions enable the HMI controls to be configured rapidly to suit the context of what is being controlled.

QTC-based industrial controller on display at Hannover Messe

QTC-based industrial controller on display at Hannover Messe
At Hannover Messe 2015, Peratech will demonstrate a touch screen industrial controller. The controller uses the company’s standard keyboard sensor with its Opaque QTC force-sensing technology, which accurately measures both the amount of pressure applied to the keypad and its precise location. Peratech QTC force-sensing technology is more accurate than capacitive touch screen technology, making it much safer as it detects only actual touches so there are no false touches.

Peratech’s New QTC Ultra Touch Screen Technology Goes Behind The Display So There Is No Light Loss And Longer Battery Life

Peratech has used its recently launched QTC Ultra Sensor to create a touch screen solution for OLED displays for phones, monitors and large interactive displays. The QTC Ultra Sensor is so sensitive that it can be placed behind the OLED display and still detect finger touches on the front of the display to create a touch screen interface. By positioning the touch screen sensor behind the display, there is no loss of light from the display enabling the battery life to be longer. This new QTC Ultra Touch Screen technology follows on from Peratech’s QTC Clear touch screen solution that was launched in 2011.
