Mouser Brings VCC’s LED-based CTH Series Capacitive Touch Sensor Displays

Mouser Electronics, Inc., is now stocking the CTH Series capacitive touch sensor displays from VCC. Combining an integrated touch sensor IC with a high optical LED display, the CTH Series of capacitive touch devices provide a fast and intuitive display interface that offers an attractive cost savings by eliminating the need for a traditional switch. The robust design combines graphic interactive control with color identification for use in a wide range of applications.

The VCC CTH Series capacitive touch sensor displays, available from Mouser Electronics, offer translucent icons illuminated with different colored LEDs, and provide superior device interaction by communicating a singular action to users such as on/off, alarm status. The LED display produces uniform illumination and high optical clarity and are available with or without a wide variety of standard graphic overlays and colors. Unlike mechanical membrane switches or mechanical push buttons, VCC’s CTH Series capacitive touch sensor displays have no moving parts, which improves reliability and increases operational life of the product. These compact displays also eliminate the need for designing-in a traditional switch, which saves on cost and simplifies the design process.

The CTH series provides a more intuitive interface to ease and accelerate user interactions for a broad array of applications including mobile communication devices, point-of-sale terminals, industrial control displays, gaming devices, appliances, consumer equipment, media players, medical devices, PDAs, portable instruments, and touch screen monitors. The RoHS- and REACH-compliant devices feature a through-hole design and are offered in a standard size of 15 mm × 15 mm × 11 mm with pitch of 2.54 mm.
