UDI Targets Wearables with Ultra-thin Touch Sensors

26 November 2014

Touch panel maker UniDisplay Inc. (UDI) has rolled out a line of lightweight, ultra-thin flexible touch sensors with 9H hardness cover lenses targeted for consumer devices, specifically wearables.

The Hsinchu, Taiwan-based company worked with display materials company Cambrios Technologies Corp. in order to deliver the touch screen products using Cambrios’ ClearOhm silver nanowire material. Combined with UDI’s One-Film-Solution (OFS) technology, the company has been able to mass produce touch screen modules that are thinner and lightweight than other products on the market, UDI said.

S.Y. Lin, CEO of UDI, said in a statement the next generation of devices have to be thinner but have higher “performance and durability” because that’s what consumers expect. Through the partnership with Cambrios, “we are able to deliver new possibility of touch solutions” for the mobile and wearables market, he added.

UDI’s touch screen modules have been implemented into smartphones and tablets as well as products in the automotive and industrial control markets.
