Neonode unveiled the new products in May at SID Display Week in San Jose, Calif., where the company’s U.S. offices are also based.
The new generation of zForce touch solutions offer the same performance as previous versions, but at a much lower cost of 43 cents per diagonal inch in system cost, according to Neonode.
A new type of zForce sensor module enables mounting in a different orientation to obtain the same active detection area. Neonode officials think the new orientation could allow for new levels of design freedom, as well as integration in a wider range of applications. The new zForce sensor modules also have an extended detection range.
Neonode sensor modules enable touch interaction, mid-air interaction and object sensing. The company sells them for integration in a wide range of applications within the medical, automotive, consumer electronics, robotics and other markets.
