Intelligent Switches Pave Path To Optimum Human-Machine Interface

With programmable displays, switches have evolved into a flexible, reliable, customizable interface that designers can acquire off the shelf.

The Space-Time (and cost) Continuum of Programmable Switches

Programmable switches reduce the number of switches needed by allowing multiple functions to save space and time by reducing operator errors and training time needed for products.

OLED Switches Dominate in Electronic Device Design

Learn about the almighty OLED switch boasting 65,535 colors per pixel and why it is predominantly used in design projects involving SmartSwitch.

How to Design with a Programmable Switch

Learn how a host system communicates to a serial interface and to a SmartSwitch subsystem. Learn which subsystem fits best into your SmartSwitch design by choosing between a prebuilt subsystem module, an engineering design kit, or writing microcontroller code to manually send images and read switch presses yourself.
