Posted by markwahlbargg on June 27th, 2019

Today in all the electronic devices, manufacturersare using membrane keypads. Today we are going to talk about what membrane switches are and its benefits.

The construction of silicone rubber keypads is much simpler and cheaper than the mechanical keyboards, which are composed of single and separate switches under each key.

What is stock membrane switches?

The stock membrane switches a momentary switching device that is manufactured using a series of flexible layers of film and polymer adhesives. The top layer, called a graph or overlap, is manufactured by printing down on the surface of transparent polyester or polycarbonate film.

Stock membrane switches can be constructed with multiple circuit layers and optimized graphics.

Custom membrane switches, when combined with components such as a graphics overlay, tactile dome, or integrated LED resistors, can provide the designer with virtually unlimited capabilities to create the ideal custom user interface for their products.
