Sentons next-generation technology is used in a wide variety of markets and devices


Sentons works with leading OEMs to enhance the smartphone user experience by adding touch and force-sensing controls to the sides and back of phone and tablet enclosures.

The first phones featuring Sentons technology were launched to worldwide markets in 2018.

Example Use Cases

  • Squeeze sensors on the sides of phones
  • Tap and button sensors to replace mechanical buttons
  • Hand position sensors to recognize how a user is holding a phone
  • Swipe sensors and sliders on the enclosure surface


Smart watches and other wearables have small displays, so on-screen touch controls often obstruct the users view.
Sentons' technology enables off-screen interactive controls to improve the overall user experience.

Example Use Cases

  • Touch sensitive bezels
  • Virtual slides and swipe areas on the sides of devices
  • "Contact force" sensors that detect how tight a wearable is against the body


Sentons' technology enables new PC interaction beyond the traditional keyboard/mouse/trackpad.

OEMs can enable smartphone-like gesture controls on any surface of a PC or laptop enclosure.

Example Use Cases

  • Touch sensitive palm-rest areas
  • Slider bars on keyboards or the sides of displays
  • Virtual keys on plastic or metal enclosure surfaces
