SigmaSense and Dawar partner to provide interactive touch and touchless interfaces for the medical, industrial and marine markets in the USA
December 1, 2020 – SigmaSense, the global leader in touch screen performance, today announced partnering with Dawar Technologies to provide the demanding interactive touch screens required by product designers in the medical, marine and industrial markets. SigmaSense has selected Dawar Technologies, as a preferred partner for non-consumer market segments. As a preferred partner member, Dawar Technologies receives extensive training from SigmaSense on the SigmaDrive™ enabled touch controller devices and associated development tools so that Dawar Technologies can optimize design and manufacture of custom interactive touch solutions based upon SigmaSense’s technology.
SigmaSense’s unique SigmaDrive current mode delta sigma technology provides from 100 to 1000 times superior signal-to-noise (SNR) capability compared to the industry today. Because each touch sensor channel has a dedicated sigma-delta modulator and are all concurrently driven using a digital narrow band filter, an extremely high SNR is achieved even while using a very low drive voltage. This game-changing development is poised to disrupt the touch sensor market providing robust, reliable touch operations even through liquids, contaminants and electrical noise while easing tedious tuning operations.
New, advanced Human Machine Interface (HMI) functionality is also enabled by SigmaVision technology. SigmaVision provides concurrent, real-time high-resolution imaging of the entire screen. High fidelity information, reported at the industry’s fastest report rates, can detect all of the objects touching or in proximity to the display surface. High speed, high fidelity data is ideal input for machine learning applications that can then identify the object. This more advanced HMI capability will usher in a new wave of user experiences for the medical, industrial marine and other markets.
Dawar has grown and evolved from a commercial printer and typographer to a recognized leader in providing projected capacitive solutions and value-added services for the medical, industrial, marine and other markets. Dawar has broad engineering capabilities that allow them to provide the best solutions to meet customers’ needs. The close working relationship with SigmaSense enhances the solutions that Dawar can now provide to their markets. As a result, customers benefit from high performance, high-quality products and services that help them succeed.
“With today’s announcement, two projected capacitive touch innovators are joining forces to provide a new touch sensing capability to a variety of demanding markets“, said Dave Ashi, Vice President of Sales and Marketing at Dawar Technologies. “With the global pandemic making our customers rethink what it means to interact with touch enabled devices, and the technology innovation that SigmaSense offers, our clients now have the ability to design both touch and touch-less enabled solutions with the accuracy and sensitivity never seen before in the industry.“
“We’re very excited to be working with Dawar Technologies,” said Steve Sedaker, CMO of SigmaSense. “Our internal team has been focusing on consumer applications for our new touch technologies. Dawar will enable us to expand our offerings into medical, industrial, marine and other markets.”
“Dawar has been providing touch solutions for those types of markets for over thirteen years,” added Dennis Fitzgerald, President and CEO of Dawar Technologies. “Our engineering team are experts in designing and supporting custom touch solutions for a variety of applications. SigmaSense’s new SigmaDrive touch controllers will enable us to offer our customers new touch sensing technologies that weren’t available before.”
SigmaSense, the global leader in touch sensing performance, is bringing the best user experiences to products ranging from mobile phones and laptops to large monitors and digital signage. We are pioneering a comprehensive sensing technology that delivers 100 to 1000 times improved signal-to-noise performance that was previously not possible. SigmaVision™ capacitive imaging technology provides touch, pressure and object detection to the sensing surface, enabling a new generation of perceptive devices that are interactive and engaging. SigmaHover™ provides a superior touchless experience for public displays as well as any other device that uses touch sensors. Headquartered in Austin, TX, SigmaSense provides semiconductor products with development tools and support.
Headquartered in Pittsburgh, PA since its inception, Dawar Technologies has been in business for over 137 years evolving from a commercial printer and typographer to a recognized leader in providing projective capacitance and resistive touch solutions and value added services for the medical, marine, industrial and other markets. Dawar’s broad array of user-interface technologies allows us to provide the best solution to meet our customers’ needs. With manufacturing and design facilities in the USA and Asia, control and management of the entire touch system design, production and supply chain management fulfillment process is provided.
