The Integritouch solution tracks back to the mid 1970’s emanating from the Inventor – Anders Swedin’s experience of television displays and formal education in (amongst other fields) how teletexting is displayed multiplexed into the timespace between individual image frames.
In the late 1980’s Swedish inventor Anders Swedin gained experience in the LCD display technology from major Japanese manufacturers and in 1990’s from different OnCell touch technologies. In the inventors profession as Field Sales Engineer, the daily task was to find competitive cost-saving solutions to differentiate from competition.
At that time the touch screen manufacturers made touch screens, and display manufacturers produced displays. This with parts delivered by the same vendors to be assemblied by the display module maker. Anders Swedin’s vision and dream became finding an economically beneficial solution where several extra optical and eletrical material-layers of touch detection material were removed – to untilize a InCell Touch solution.
The solution he discovered was to use the already existing display electrical conductors to detect touch by a until then totally unique capacitive touch method, a methodology which was basically the same as the one mastered 30 years earlier in a different way by the Television industry!
After a few first experimental designs, in kitchen and garage, a feasibility study was conducted which led to the worlds first working InCell product in the year of 2003.
Simultaneously as patents were filed, the Integritouch company was founded. Since then till today the developments have been continuous, patents have been filed and projects related to the basic idea developed from the more than 30 years experience in this particular field have been successful!
As a example of the success, Anders Swedin’s patents are referred as prior art base of 50 Apple patents.
Integritouch offered unique knowledge in this specific field is gratefully appreciated by billions of smartphone users globally.
