Side Buttons Enhance Mobile Device Performance

Provider of ForceTouch solutions, NextInput, Inc. introduces what it calls the first MEMS-based mobile side button module. Handset OEMs are differentiating their products with new seamless industrial designs eliminating mechanical buttons. NextInput turnkey modules replace volume buttons and enable new features such as sliders and grip sensors that can be mapped to any application short cut.

 

NextInput solutions perform accurately over temperature and changing environmental conditions, have excellent RF immunity and much higher reliability. Alternate technologies, such as strain gauge, are hard to activate due to low sensitivity, significantly eroding the user experience.
