SAN JOSE, CALIFORNIA – May 24, 2017 – The FT-4500 Series are the world’s first chip-scale package MEMS force sensors to achieve AEC-Q100 qualification. These solutions are now proven to withstand the rugged environment, and meet the stringent quality standards, required by the Automotive market.

The FT-4500B and FT-4500C are offered in the automotive temperature Grade 3 (-40°C to +85°C) and Grade 2 (-40°C to +105°C), respectively. These highly reliable solutions are ideal for use in numerous in-cabin applications; including controls for the steering wheel, center console, infotainment, climate, door locks, seats, mirrors and remote keyless entry.

“OEMs are implementing aesthetically appealing industrial designs utilizing force based controls with haptics to provide an intuitive interface, thereby allowing the driver to focus on the road,” says Ali Foughi, NextInput CEO and Founder. “These HMI applications demand AEC-Q100 qualification and achieving it shows our strong commitment to the Automotive market.”

The FT-4500B and FT-4500C solutions are available now and further information can be obtained by contacting NextInput at [email protected].
