Azoteq’s technology allows for the designing of various dust- and waterproof user interfaces based on contactless inductive sensing.
A small deflection or change in distance, from a metal target can be detected by an inductive sensing coil that is sealed inside the housing.
Force sensing happens when the user squeezes the housing of an earbud to produce a function. The inductive coils can detect as little as 2um deflection of the metal target .
A slider can be implemented beneath a sealed plastic housing making the solution completely waterproof. The inductive coils detect the position of the metal object.
Design a waterproof stove knob that can be completely removed and easily replaced for easy cleaning and child safety.
