Pelikon Limited
Pelikon MorphPad™ and MorphTouch™ revolutionize the user experience on mobile phones and consumer devices by simplifying the user experience and providing increased functionality. The MorphPad and MorphTouch turnkey modules set against a black background with a wide choice of colours offer full tactile feedback, high contrast and visual impact. When power is off, the morphing keypad provides a clean, black dead front surface, which appeals to both consumers and product designers.
From rapid text entry to game control, multiple features and complex tasks are made easier and much more intuitive. Keyboards and keypads automatically reconfigure - or "morph" -- to reveal only the controls relevant to the user's immediate task, whether it is email, phone, MP3, or web browsing. Pelikon MorphPadsTM integrate tactile dome switches and optional touch sensing with a low-power, programmable, flexible backlit display into an ultra-thin keyboard/keypad module that is visible under all lighting conditions and from wide viewing angles. The ability to create stunning animations and intuitive mode swapping further enhances the user experience.
MorphPad and MorphTouch technologies enable carriers and handset manufacturers to promote new functions and additional services that may be limited by other interface products. MorphPad's ability to integrate additional functionalities like gaming and track pad creates opportunities for handset manufacturers and carriers to potentially achieve higher average revenue per user.
MorphPad™ was integrated in the Toshiba® Biblio ebook Reader, launched in 2009 in Japan by KDDI.
Pelikon is an MFLEX (Nasdaq: MFLX) company. MFLEX is the second-largest global flexible printed circuit board producer and module assembler. In fiscal 2009, MFLEX reported net sales of $764 million USD and celebrated its 25th year anniversary.
