Fujitsu Asia has extended its product portfolio with the launch of wide-aspect ratio, 4-wire resistive touch panels. These touch panels offer 16:9 and 16:10 aspect ratios. Complying with the RoHS standards the wide aspect ratio touch panels are available in various diagonal-inch sizes including 6.5, 7.0, 8.0, 8.9, 9.0, 10.2, 12.1, 13.3, and 15.3.
According to Bruce DeVisser, Fujitsu Components’ touch panel product marketing manager, demand for wide-aspect ratio, touch-enabled displays is increasing in many consumer, industrial, and medical applications due to the increasing high-resolution graphics and video content, which has a landscape orientation in a 16:9 aspect ratio. In addition, using a touch panel instead of a keyboard allows more product area to be devoted to a wider/larger display, notes DeVisser.
These are available at a price ranging from $21.43 for a 6.5-inch to $73.82 for a 12.1-inch.
