At CES, there are 3D sensor demonstrators created in collaboration with Cypress Semiconductor Corp, Microchip Technology Inc., and Synaptics Inc. Another key competence in 3D touch sensor creation involves forming, molding, and integration of touch sensors into 3D modules. A 3D formed center console demonstrator is presented at CES, in close collaboration with Nissha Printing.
Canatu has created a partnership network of touch sensor manufacturers in Asia to support the high volumes and demanding quality requirements of the automotive industry.Canatu is announcing at CES two new sensor manufacturing partnerships: with Hosiden Corporation of Japan, a high-quality manufacturer of electronic parts for automotive industry and Young Fast of Taiwan, a strong volume manufacturer of small, medium and large touch panel sensors.
Canatu has a vision that any surface and any shape can be functional. The interior design from displays to other touch surfaces is shown at CES with a 3D shaped leather demonstrator created together with Stahl, a leader in car interior surfaces.
“Canatu’s films and sensors enable 3D touch solutions for both automotive and consumer electronics by expanding touch areas to any surface as well as offering design freedom. The replacement of flat touch screens and mechanical buttons with in-molded 3D sensors and technology enables robust surfaces and intuitive user experience in the cockpits of the future,” said Juha Kokkonen, Canatu’s CEO.
