Tactile keypads are simply keypads that have been specifically designed to give feedback to the user upon actuation. For example, when a button is pushed on a non-tactile keypad, the user’s finger presses against the visual representation of a button. The user does not know at what point they have actuated the button unless there is some type of visual signal. On the other hand, a tactile keypad provides a ‘snap’ feel or ‘click’ providing the user haptic feedback. This feedback lets the user know that they have actuated the keypad.

Lately there has been a lot of interest surrounding the concept of reshoring. If you’re not familiar, reshoring is the movement of manufacturing or a business operation from offshore back to the country where it was originally located. This concept is by no means a new one, but recent economic and industry factors have companies re-evaluating their supply chains and strategy. Read more “Reshoring: Are You Made in The USA?”
Prototyping: Where Do You Begin?
Do you have a great idea for a product, but you’re not sure what the next step is? Consider making a prototype to confirm the design and structure of your idea prior to production. Here are some quick steps to follow: Read more “How to Create a Prototype”

There are two general modes of engineering: forward and reverse. Forward engineering is the prototypical process whereby a product moves from an abstract idea to a physical object. This can involve many processes depending on the final product, including drawing approvals, material selection, and choosing a cost-effective production method. Ideally, documentation is organized and protected at every step of the way. Read more “What is Reverse Engineering?”

What is a Resistive Touch Screen?
In simple terms, a Resistive Touch Screen is a touch-sensitive computer display that responds by applying pressure. It’s made from two resistive-coated transparent sheets that are separated by a small air gap. When contact is made to the surface of the touchscreen, these two sheets are pressed together. Each sheet has horizontal and vertical lines that register the precise location of the touch. Because the touchscreen senses input from contact with nearly any object (finger, stylus/pen, palm, etc.) resistive touchscreens are a type of passive technology. All this means is that the Resistive Touch Screens do have an internal power source, and so rely on electromagnetic energy transmitted from an RFID reader.
