OGS | One Glass Solution touch panels Q&A

Posted by Eric Hawkins on Nov 24th 2017


One Glass Solution touch panels (OGS) are thinner, lower cost and provide brighter displays than regular LCD modules.

Introduction to OGS:

LCD Displays with integrated capacitive touch panels have become popular on products requiring a user interface. Benefits of this interface include multi-touch gestures such as zooming and scrolling.

Side-effects of current capacitive touch panel technology include an increase in thickness of the module and a decrease in the displays brightness. Thanks to a new type of capacitive touch technology, these side effects are greatly reduced with the added advantage of a lower cost display module.

ONE GLASS SOLUTION (OGS) TOUCH PANEL

One Glass Solution is a fairly new touch panel technology and is also referred to as One Glass Touch Technology, Sensor on Lens (SOL) and Direct Pattern Window (DPW) overlays.

The One Glass Solution is a fairly new touch panel technology and is also referred to as One Glass Touch process reduces the thickness of current capacitive touch panels by combining the touch panel and protective glass and removing the air gap. The result is a thinner compilation.

      

The following YouTube video explains OGS touch panel technology in detail.

One Glass Solution Advantages:

  • Thinner LCD module
  • Increased efficiency due to the simplified design and reduction of layers
  • Optically clear, less layers to obstruct the light
  • Overall manufacturing costs are lower due to the reduction of components and ease of implementation

OGS touch panel Q and A:

Q1: Does the OGS touch screen allow multi touch?

A1: Yes, The panel can accept up to ten touches/points


Q2:
Is a separate controller required to drive the interface?

A2: Yes

Q3: Are there standard OGS panel sizes?

A3: Yes, at this time we offer 3.5”, 4.3”, 5”, 7”, and 10.1”

Q4: Is it possible to build a custom OGS touch panel?

A4: Yes, we would need a drawing before we can offer a solid unit cost, NRE and MOQ.

Q5: What is the MOQ (Minimum Order Quantity) for a custom OGS/Sensor on Lens (SOL)?

A5: It ranges between 1K and 2K units.

Q6: Can an OGS touch screen only be applied to a TFT (Thin Film Transistor) ?

A6: No. It is possible to apply the panel to monochrome or OLED (Organic Light-Emitting Diode).

Q7: What is the largest OGS panel that can be built?

A7: At this time OGS touch panels can range from 2” (50mm) to 13.3” (337 mm)

Q8: What is the thickness of the touch panel?

A8: It ranges between .4mm to 1.1mm

OGS Conclusion:

At this time, OGS is still very new and only a few manufactures can supply it. With all new technologies, if successful, this could replace current capacitive touch panel technology.
