April 24, 2012 // By Paul Buckley
Mouser Electronics, Inc., has unveiled the company’s new Touch Technology Product Knowledge Center (PKC) application training site on The new site is engineered to help design engineers find the latest advancements in touch technology.

The site offers trends and supporting product information in a few clicks of a mouse.

The new site complements Mouser’s broad line card, which includes 3M, Atmel, Cypress Semiconductor, Freescale Semiconductor, Microchip Technology, Azoteq, Amulet Technologies and Newhaven Display, plus many other leading suppliers in touch technology.

Organized into four sectors: Technology, Featured Products, Articles, and Design Resources, Mouser’s Touch Technology PKC application training site is a comprehensive resource, covering all areas of touch, including touch buttons, sliders, and wheels that are beginning to replace traditional switches, as well as touch screen technology that is now common in portable consumer devices. Technology guides and product selection are grouped by touch displays, touch overlays, touch controllers ICs, and development kits, with the newest products available for design easily found under the featured products section. Engineers can quickly narrow in on a set universe of products based on defined parameters/engineering standards for their specific design needs.

To view information by application or end equipment rather than product, the design engineer can quickly reference the Resource Guide. It contains applications information, tutorials and white papers, videos, plus other helpful design sources to help fast track the overall design process. Arranged neatly into defined categories, the information can be quickly referenced by supplier or topic. The site is constantly being updated and refined as touch technology continues to evolve.
