Taiwan-based Higgstec has developed a single-layer projected capacitive touch (S-PCT) solution which offers proximity sensing and better transmittance than other types of touch panels, according to the company.

The multi-touch S-PCT claims a transmittance of 97.4%, compared to 90% for other capacitive panels, and 73-90% for the resistive type, says Higgstec.

S-PCT is highly noise resistance, and with supporting ICs it features proximity sensing, or 3D touch íV meaning a touch can be realized without physical contact, according to the company.

Higgstec said its S-PCT panels target the market for digital cameras, digital photo frames and handsets.
