core competence. Our company founded in 1988 start in
the field of touch panel. We are the first company to
produce touch panel in Taiwan. Our first technology
of touch panel comes from Japan. (Midori Mark Co.) We
made touch panel from 4 wire resistive、5 wire resistive
to Surface Capacitive and Surface Acoustic Wave. Our engineer
designed the layout of all touch panels. We designed
5 wire resistive layout by ourselves and pass Taiwan
& USA patent. We developed complete Surface Capacitive touchscreen
on Dec. 2004, and mass produced on Feb. 2005. Our tough
Capacitive touchscreens are very professional technical.
We will announce the SAW touchscreens on next month.
Our R&D group is not only proficient in touch sensor
but also touch control card. We have 4W, 5W resistive
control card, SAW control card will be announced on
next month and surface capacitive control card is proceeding
as planned. Our best advantage and character of the
touch sensor and control card are total compatible for Elo or 3M.

the ground of a lot of innovative products, especially
in the game machine, the automatic equipment, ATM etc.,
Japanese companies use touchscreens on their equipments
