Force-sensing linear potentiometers (FSLPs) from Interlink Electronics are passive components with resistances that depend on the magnitude and location of the force applied to the strip, making it easy to add novel touch interfaces or tactile sensors to your project. This 4″ (10 cm) strip can be cut to shorter, predefined lengths (1″, 2″, or 3″) to better suit your application. An external resistor (typically 4.7 kΩ to 10 kΩ) is required but not included.
