    Resistive touchscreens are the sort you’re well on the way to use in a DIY microcontroller venture. These comprise of two screen layers covered with a resistive material and isolated by a little hole. At the point when contacted, the layers reach, making a voltage divider circuit. The subsequent voltage is effectively estimated and related to position.
