In order to make an electronic switch, a carbon pill or gold pill is placed on the base of the switch center which contacts onto a printed circuit board when the web has been deformed.

There are three common options for automobile silicone buttons: carbon pill, gold pill, nickel pill.

To get responsive, positive feedback by switch, they must be low resistance. So some customer will choose gold pill and nickel pill to ensure the best sensitivity.

Note: Resistance of gold pill can be lower than 1ohm and nickel pill can be 3ohm.

Travel and actuation force of automobile silicone buttons are designed high to prevent users from touching. The actuation force is usually as high as 300-400g.
