Prologue of Touch Panel
The resistive type touch panel first appeared in the 1980s. After taking some turning points, the resistive type became the touch panel to be applied to products that are popular in the business and entertainment market.
At first, it showed its presence as a control device for stationary terminals such as Factory Automation, medical, and POS terminals. It was generalized as the input switch for mobile terminal by the popularization of Personal Computers with the appearance of Windows 95 in 1995 and by the adoption of information terminals such as PDA which appeared in 2000.
Going into the 21st Century, there have been more and more occasions for us to use touch panel particularly for visual devices such as digital cameras, video cameras and consumer products such as mobile phones, restaurant ordering systems, in-flight seating systems, car navigation and tablet PC.
A quarter of century since it's appearance, touch panel technology has been applied to various products and the touch panel is used as familiar input device. Over time, commoditization has progressed and touch panel has established its style as a user-friendly product.
