The Sante ProTouch module reportedly is the industry's first high-performance, projected capacitive (pro-cap) solution for large-format touch screens that can be mass-produced in high volumes. With ultra-fast response and optimized touch performance, this module enables an intuitive multi-touch, multi-user experience for an array of applications, such as interactive digital signage, kiosks, vending machines, tabletops and e-whiteboards. The company's patented Sante technology allows manufacturers to produce customizable touch displays at a significantly lower cost structure than other products, according to the company.
"Our technology is backed by more than a decade of R&D and we are now at the exciting stage of commercializing new, innovative products with key partners in the industry," said John Brodd, CEO, Cima NanoTech. "With our unique Sante technology, our partners are able to offer the most innovative touch screens in the market at a highly competitive price point."
SABIC announced that it has partnered with Cima NanoTech to apply Sante technology to its Lexan polycarbonate substrate film to achieve highly sensitive touch screens that are also impact resistant and thermoformable. SABIC is also at CES displaying the latest in polymer materials for large-format electronic displays.
Some of the features and benefits of the Sante ProTouch Module include ultra fast response time with a scan rate up to 120 Hz (6 ms) for a more intuitive and interactive experience; true multi-touch capabilities of up to 32 points for greater interactivity and better collaboration; edge-to-edge cover lens for enhanced aesthetics and ease of maintenance; and a narrow 20-mm bezel to enhance visual appeal.
Cima NanoTech is demonstrating a 65-inch interactive whiteboard, 55- and 40-inch interactive digital signage and a 40-inch interactive tabletop at CES 2016.
