 The minimum size of a touch switch.

■The minimum size of a touch switch.

The main part of a touch panel, the resistance film on a screen consists of grids of 20x20 dots, and a touch cannot be easily registered with a switch of 20x20 or smaller. The interval of 20×20 serves as the minimum size for touch-panel switch creation.

However, the interval of 40×40 dots serves as the minimum unit at the time of touch-panel switch creation.

■For checking the 20x20 grid using illustrating software.
