UICO DuraTouch all-weather touch solutions at SID Display Week 2017

Posted by Charbax – September 10, 2017

UICO is a touch screen technology company that makes all-weather touch screens and touch surfaces for wearables, durables, and IoT smart devices. This video highlights many of their innovative touch screen and touch surface solutions that they demonstrated at SID's DisplayWeek 2017. They show some of the great retail and B2B products that feature their touch screens including an off-the-shelf retail boat GPS fishfinder with a 7" touch screen that they put under a running shower to show touch working with water pouring on the screen and without false touching. They show another device with a 10.1" touchscreen that works with super thick winter gloves. They show that their touch screens work with regular gloves and require no special capacitive tips. UICO shows an array of fitness bands and smart watches in production like Garmin HR+ that use their touch screens so you can swim, shower, and use the device with sweaty fingers. They explain that their patented IP is a combination of software, firmware, algorithms and other aspects of touch screen technology making it possible for touch to work with tons of water, thick gloves, sweat and saline, and through very thick cover lens materials for "industrial-grade" applications. When showing their wearable device solutions including AMOLED and PMOLED on-cell solutions, they boast achieving the lowest power consumption industry-wide.

Binay Bajaj, UICO's Vice President of Marketing, demonstrats a highly-unique implementation of their touch technology in a joystick. The joystick is able to sense the user's hand around it and thus preventing mistakes if the user is not properly engaged. They explain that duraTOUCH surface provides a new level of safety and control. Their touch surfaces work with leather, wood, fabric, plastic and other dielectric materials, and many automobile companies are looking at this solution for touch on car interiors, car doors and trunks, touch on steering wheels and more. Some of UICO's customers are implementing touch on fabric to enable touch controls in various types of clothing worn outdoors for both consumers and the commercial safety and security markets. UICO's touch surfaces, like their touch screens, work with thick gloves, water, sweat, and solve other problems inherent to capacitive touch.

UICO is a full-service, technology and manufacturing company and offers customers complete touch screen solutions and broad customization options. They also showed a 15.6" screen and discussed other larger screens sizes being launched in 2017 and 2018 along with new PMOLED and on-cell solutions. They are located in Silicon Valley and Chicago.
