Development of the world’s smallest-class* tactile switch for smartphones and wearable devices-The switch contributes to reduction in thickness and size as well as enhanced functionality of devices
［ Products ］
Left: The world’ smallest class new product (LS165)
Right: Current product (LS160)
We have achieved further miniaturization through improvement of processing accuracy of components of the switch and accuracy in assembly.
2. Current model LS160 2.8mm (width) × 1.6mm (length) × 0.55mm (height)
2. High dust-proofing and waterproofing properties
The switches comply with the dust-proofing and waterproofing standard (IP67) by hermetically sealing the periphery of the spring.
3. The structure that is strong against lateral pressure
With the built-in actuator, the product has achieved enhanced strength against lateral pressure.
Examples of application
Our company started manufacturing switches in 1989 and has achieved reduction in size and thickness through our original precision processing technique. Currently, Citizen Electronics has a world top-class share of tactile switches used for smartphones as power switches or to adjust volume.
