Switches: Switch Modules

Switch Modules design engineers Panasonic

Panasonic Switch Modules, also known as tactile sheets, consist of domed diaphragms fixed by tape on a base film. Switch Modules function as mini switches which are laminated on a printed circuit board. Often used in cell phones and small handheld devices to detect finger strokes on a keypad, Panasonic Switch Modules use a unique diaphragm design to provide high contact reliability. Other advantageous features include a ventilating mechanism, silver-treated metal dome, protective film and plastic film carrier tape.
