Azoteq, the world leader in proximity and touch solutions, today announced that Mouser Electronics has been chosen as Azoteq’s exclusive worldwide catalog distributor. Azoteq’s ProxSense® 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.

“Azoteq partnered with Mouser Electronics because Mouser offers excellent engineering resources and unsurpassed customer service that will make ProxSense® products available to a huge customer base”, said Kobus Marneweck, VP of Marketing at Azoteq.

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.
