TRUE INTERFACE. Pressure. Flexible. Smarter.

We are developing the third touch dimension in human-machine interfaces, and enabling a deeper and more natural interaction with devices. Flexibility and pressure allow smart interfaces in every objects and surfaces of our world.

  • True pressure detection

    Multi-Touch: touch detection with more than 10 contacts points
    Pressure detection: intensity of multiple contacts without software tricks

  • Optical clarity

    Enhanced optical: Not using ITO grid as conventional touch an increase of the optical clarity is obtained

  • Flexibility and curve

    Rollable displays can have a robust touch screen
    Non conventional surfaces can be easily sensorized

  • Low cost and low power

    Not using ITO and thanks to the enhanced optical clarity the display can work with reduced power consumption
    Low cost technology

  • Rugged design

    The touch layer is rugged and can bear high pressure loads

  • Agnostic to touch input


  • Electromagnetic noise immunity

    Not susceptible to EM noise:
    it's ideal for industrial and medical application

  • Thinner and lighter touch screen

    Compared to capacitive touch screens, SEMplus touch is thinner and lighter
