Appliqués and Overlays
ADS’ applique products for the consumer electronics market range from simple rating plates on the rear surface of a device to sophisticated panels which form the critical element of the user interface. Such panels are used not only to enhance the operation of the product, but also to provide the branding and market identity.
ADS’ membrane switch products have featured on a wide range of consumer products including microwave ovens and other kitchen appliances. The wipe clean nature of the technology, combined with its reliability and relatively low cost, make this technique very popular with product designers.
By combining our 3D InMold technology with our experience in switch products and backlighting, ADS developed a range of 3D keypads which have featured widely in mobile telephones and other handheld devices.
