“Azoteq is excited to start the venture with IO Components, as they have an experienced sales force who is led by Mr. Paul Bundy, who brings with him in-depth knowledge of both the product range, but also the key markets that are served by the Azoteq products”, said Jean Viljoen, Azoteq’s Marketing Manager for Europe and Asia.

"I am delighted that IO Components recognizes the importance of this market segment and have given me the opportunity to continue my long-term association with Azoteq,” said Paul Bundy, Sales and Marketing Manager. “The Azoteq products are by far the leading technical solution to capacitive proximity and touch applications and their technical support is second to none.”

Azoteq’s ProxSense® offers the next generation of capacitive proximity and touch solutions. Proximity sensing enables new applications such as detecting when a user’s hand approaches the product. Features that can be implemented with proximity sensing include find-in-the-dark (enables backlight when hand approaches) and air gestures (wave hand to turn on/off, page and scroll). The combination of proximity and touch presents the next evolution in user interfaces.

The ProxSense® range offers the most sensitive capacitive sensing solutions with the highest signal to noise ratio (>1000:1) in the market today. The high sensitivity enables proximity sensing up to 300mm and the ability to implement touch solutions that can work through 20mm cover materials.
