A tactile switch allows electricity to flow in an electrical circuit by manually pressing the operating section. The switch is used to supply an input signal to actuate a device or equipment. It is designed with a small footprint suited for mounting onto the surface of printed circuit boards (PCB) made to connect electronic components to form electronic circuits.
A tactile switch is literally a switch in which users can “feel a click sense of touch”. In this whitepaper, learn more about the features, structure, and applications of tactile switches.
