Capacitive sensing A capacitive touchscreen panel consists of an insulatorsuch as glasscoated with a transparent conductorsuch as indium tin oxide ITO. Different technologies may be used to determine the location of the touch.
The location is then sent to the controller for processing.
Unlike a resistive touchscreenone cannot use a capacitive touchscreen through most types of electrically insulating material, such as gloves. This disadvantage especially affects usability in consumer electronics, such as touch tablet PCs and capacitive smartphones in cold weather.
Leading capacitive display manufacturers continue to develop thinner and more accurate touchscreens. A simple parallel-plate capacitor has two conductors separated by a dielectric layer. Most of the energy in this system is concentrated directly between the plates.
Some of the energy spills over into the area outside the plates, and the electric field lines associated with this effect are called fringing fields.
Part of the challenge of making Screen technology practical capacitive sensor is to design a set of printed circuit traces which direct fringing fields into an active sensing area accessible to a user.
A parallel-plate capacitor is not a good choice for such a sensor pattern. Placing a finger near fringing electric fields adds conductive surface area to the capacitive system. The additional charge storage capacity added by the finger is known as finger capacitance, or CF.
The capacitance of the sensor without a finger present is known as parasitic capacitance, or CP. A small voltage is applied to the layer, resulting in a uniform Screen technology field.
When a conductor, such as a human finger, touches the uncoated surface, a capacitor is dynamically formed. As it has no moving parts, it is moderately durable but has limited resolution, is prone to false signals from parasitic capacitive couplingand needs calibration during manufacture.
It is therefore most often used in simple applications such as industrial controls and kiosks.
This technology was first developed by Ronald and Malcolm Binstead inwhen a simple 16 key capacitive touchpad was invented  which could sense a finger through very thick glass, even though the signal to be sensed was significantly smaller than the capacitance changes caused by varying environmental factors such as humidity, dirt, rain and temperature.
This could use Indium Tin Oxide, or 10 to 25 micron diameter insulation coated copper wires as the sensing elements.
The first version enabled 64 touch positions to be detected with just 16 inputs. Some modern PCT touch screens are composed of thousands of discrete keys,  but most PCT touch screens are made of a matrix of rows and columns of conductive material, layered on sheets of glass.
This can be done either by etching a single conductive layer to form a grid pattern of electrodesor by etching two separate, perpendicular layers of conductive material with parallel lines or tracks to form a grid.
In some designs, voltage applied to this grid creates a uniform electrostatic field, which can be measured. When a conductive object, such as a finger, comes into contact with a PCT panel, it distorts the local electrostatic field at that point.
This is measurable as a change in capacitance. If a finger bridges the gap between two of the "tracks", the charge field is further interrupted and detected by the controller.
The capacitance can be changed and measured at every individual point on the grid. This system is able to accurately track touches. Unlike traditional capacitive touch technology, it is possible for a PCT system to sense a passive stylus or gloved finger. However, moisture on the surface of the panel, high humidity, or collected dust can interfere with performance.
There are two types of PCT: Mutual capacitance[ edit ] This is a common PCT approach, which makes use of the fact that most conductive objects are able to hold a charge if they are very close together.
In mutual capacitive sensors, a capacitor is inherently formed by the row trace and column trace at each intersection of the grid.
A voltage is applied to the rows or columns. Bringing a finger or conductive stylus close to the surface of the sensor changes the local electrostatic field, which in turn reduces the mutual capacitance. The capacitance change at every individual point on the grid can be measured to accurately determine the touch location by measuring the voltage in the other axis.
Mutual capacitance allows multi-touch operation where multiple fingers, palms or styli can be accurately tracked at the same time. Self-capacitance[ edit ] Self-capacitance sensors can have the same X-Y grid as mutual capacitance sensors, but the columns and rows operate independently.
With self-capacitance, the capacitive load of a finger is measured on each column or row electrode by a current meter, or the change in frequency of an RC oscillator. This method produces a stronger signal than mutual capacitance, but, until recently, it was unable to resolve the positions of more than one finger without ambiguity, due to "ghosting" or misplaced location sensing.
However, in a new method of sensing was patented  which allows some parts of a capacitance sensor to be sensitive to touch while other parts are insensitive. This makes it possible to mask off ambiguous possible ghost intersections to confirm if a finger is close to that intersection or not.Touch Screen Technology - How It Works.
