Lighter, Sleeker, Edgeless Designs

Atmel® XSense® touch sensors open a new world of possibilities for touch-based products. A highly flexible film, XSense sensors can be used on curved surfaces and edges. So now you can design capacitive touchscreens in shapes that previously weren’t possible.

Envision sleek, edgeless and lighter smartphones, tablets and more. Imagine eliminating mechanical buttons, in favor of more reliable, moisture-resistant, touch-based buttons. Compared with traditional  touch sensors, you’ll be able to create a much more engaging touch user experience. With XSense touch sensors, you can truly go beyond the edge of your imagination for a new class of touch-based products.

Key Features
