What is a Touch Screen Controller / IC?

A touch screen is an input device sensitive to pressure that is also a display screen.

A resistive touch screen panel is coated with a metallic electrically resistive and conductive layer that can cause a change in the electrical current which is registered when touched and sent to the controller for processing.

A capacitive touch screen panel is coated with a material which stores electrical charges. When touched, a charge is drawn to the point of contact and circuits located in the panel measure that charge and then send the information to the controller to process it.

Types of Touch Screen Controllers / IC

There are several different kinds of touch screen controllers / IC. At Future Electronics we stock many of the most common types categorized by Technology, Interface and Packaging Type. The parametric filters on our website can help refine your search results depending on the required specifications.
