Neonode IR Touch Sensor Module Sample

Neonode’s Touch Sensor Modules offer touch interaction using proprietary infrared technology. Unlike many capacitive systems, Neonode’s technology offers low-latency, high-accuracy touch detection even in higher-temperature and electromagnetically noisy environments.

The IR technology also offers resilience against surface contamination – this solution works with wet or gloved hands – and uncompromised display picture quality. Neonode’s IR Touch Sensor Module also offers sunlight resilience and night vision compliance if required.

These modules can be designed or retrofitted into devices in a wide range of applications, including:

  • PCs/Tablets
  • TVs/Monitors
  • Printers
  • White goods
  • Smart furniture
  • Interactive mirrors
  • Elevator panels
  • eReaders
  • Vending Machines
  • ATM / Point-Of-Sale
  • Robotics
  • Collision detectors

Neonode’s Infrared touch systems work by emitting an IR light array over a flat surface where touch interaction is desired. This can be done from approximately 1 mm above the surface, or at a distance for touchless interaction, i.e. air touch. The system then detects when an object blocks or reflects the light in real-time, and Neonode’s algorithms determine the position of the object with millimetre-level accuracy at a rate of up to 200 Hz.

Neonode’s Touch Sensor Modules are available in two types for vertical and horizontal integration of the module depending on the intended form factor of your end product. Modules are available in 43 standard lengths or as a customised implementation for your needs; the total touch area is affected by the length of the module but is configurable for your application.

Neonode’s modules are powered using a 5 V supply and can be interfaced with the host system through a standard connector. Communication is done through an I2C or USB interface. These easy-to-integrate modules allow a designer to transform any surface – for example, digital screens, etched metal, plastic, wood, glass, or fabric – into a touch HMI.

Detailed specifications, integration considerations, and descriptions of multi-touch behaviour can be found in this user guide.

This technology can be evaluated using one of Neonode’s standard lengths of module. Neonode can then assist in development and integration if a custom sensor is required for final implementation. If known, please specify your intended touch area size when filling out the application form.
