A stock touch sensor can be a great solution for your product, not to mention cost effective, but it can require some compromises.

A compromised design means that engineering made accommodations in the design of the unit to be able to make the stock sensor work.

Common reasons for compromises:

  • fixed display sizes
  • suboptimal placement of mounting hardware
  • fixed sensor tail length and placement


Design compromises often include:

  • requiring additional components
  • additional assembly steps
  • more expensive assembly processes
  • complicated software development
  • longer development period
  • removal of product features
  • compromised look and/or feel
  • more complicated rework or repair procedures


If you can’t afford to compromise, consider a custom touch sensor – custom doesn’t automatically mean $$$, especially when you end up with the product you want, exactly as you envisioned it!
