Though there are several different types of touch screen technologies that make up the inner workings of touch screen phones, gadgets, point of sale terminals and others, there are some types of technology that are in higher demand over others.

There are approximately eight different types of touch screen technologies used in commercial devices:

  • Resistive
  • Surface acoustic wave
  • Infrared
  • Bending wave
  • Active digitizer
  • Optical imaging
  • Surface capacitive
  • Projected capacitive

Capacitive touch technology is the hot technology right now even though resistive touch technology is by far the most widely used. Resistive technology doesn’t always deliver when it comes to picking up responsiveness to fingers or other instruments used for touch technology, like a stylus pen. The price of resistive touch technology and it’s durability have made it the most popular type.

With the onset of touch screen products and new advancements in those products and their overnight popularity brought other types of technologies perhaps not overly considered before due to cost or size or for what ever reason. Capacitive touch, although more expensive is on it’s way to surpassing resistive touch is a more durable and offers a better transmittance than the resistive touch technology. As previous touch screens on phones all had resistive touch inside them, beginning in 2007, a considerable amount of cell phones were created with capacitive touch. Cell phones are not the only gizmos with capacitive touch technology.

Other Uses of Capacitive Touch

  • Public Signage
  • E-books
  • Medical applications
  • Touch screen monitors
  • Touch pad keyboards

Capacitive touch has been around for a long time, but not until the Apple iphone created the dramatic demand for all things “touch” has the capacitive touch technology been given such a stage for opportunity. Now that capacitive touch is being seen as a better product over resistive touch technology, and becoming a more affordable option, we will see capacitive touch in ways never dreamt before.
