The differences between resistive and capacitive touchscreen
Since phones have been innovated to be smartphones, which reduce the buttons, increase screen size and power functions. one technology that is significantly developed is the touchscreen. Touchscreens are not only designed for different sizes but touchscreen also work and is called differently in terms of
- Resistive Touchscreen
- Capacitive Touchscreen
- SAW (Surface Acoustic Wave) Touch Screen
- Infrared Touchscreen
- Optical Imaging Touchscreen
- Acoustic Pulse Recognition Touchscreen
However, we would like to explain how differences between the resistive and capacitive touchscreen.
- Resistive touchscreens, this touchscreen was produced in different models and commonly used last 10 years such as Nokia N900, Nokia N97 mini, and others. The screen works similarly as a transparent keyboard on top of the screen. It relies on a touchscreen overlay, is built by a flexible upper layer and rigid lower level and separated by insulating spacer dots (tin-doped indium oxide - ITO). When you press on the screen, that makes electrical contact.
- Capacitive touchscreen, this touchscreen type is used in iPhone, Samsung Galaxy series and other phones. The touchscreen is built from multiple layers of clear glass overlay. The inner and outer layer manage electricity which screen works as two electrical conductors divided by an insulator.
Moreover, Other touchscreens types are also used in different purposed in terms of the monitor at the information centers, navigator device in cars and others. Furthermore, in Technician Training Australia, we provide on-hand mobile phone and tablet repair training, we not only train our students to repair devices, but all students will understand about all technical lessons in terms of WiFi, Bluetooth signals, electricity in devices and others which you cannot find anywhere that train you in details and practise like us.
