Plastic, such as PET (polyethylene terephthalate), sensors, with screened conductors offer an opportunity to lower the cost of manufacture for touch sensitive devices. Connecting multiple analog signals to an external PCB (printed circuit board) is both more costly and less reliable than connecting fewer digital signals. Interpretation and conversion of multiple analog signals into a serial digital format by an IC (integrated circuit)directly connected to a screened PET sensor can achieve the result of a more simple, reliable, and lower cost connection.
