The innovative force in touch technology.
Sytek's premier line of next generation force-sensing resistors is constantly expanding the potential of this innovative technology.
The force-sensing resistor is an evolution of the membrane switch using similar design principles and related manufacturing techniques. What defines a force-sensing resistor is its unique characteristic of dynamic resistance relative to the amount of pressure applied to the device. In general, the more pressure applied to the surface of the sensor, the greater the decrease in resistance. They are currently found in a wide range of industry applications, including automotive sensors, computer input devices, interactive toys, medical dispensing, musical instruments and sports equipment to name a few.
