Roll Up Digitizer

Roll Up DigitizerThe Roll Up Digitizer was a unique and innovative product that provided GTCO Corporation with a significant competitive advantage over much larger competitors  and served the needs of a great niche market in Construction Estimating.  The Roll-Up utilized an electrostatic detection scheme for position sensing and was very low power.  The Roll Up was able to be parasitically powered from the RS-232 port of a standard computer, another unique advantage to the technology in the market.

The Roll Up utilizes silver inks printed in a unique grid pattern on a tough polycarbonate substrate.  This grid provides the structure used for sensing the location of the tethered pen.

Originally introduced in 1991, the Roll-Up Digitizer remains in production to this day.
