CAMARILLO, CA--November 7, 2012: Interlink Electronics, Inc. (OTC: LINK) announced today the integration of FSRŪ 402 sensor in the littleBits Pressure Sensor input module, an electronic module designed to create simple or sophisticated electronics with minimum engineering knowledge. FSRŪ- the most versatile force sensor technology on the market proves itself to be the synergistic link between a robust technology and next-generation electronics interface.

“Interlink is delighted that littleBits has chosen our most versatile sensor as an integral component of one of its input modules (Bits)”

Interlink Electronics` FSR Ū 402 is now built into the littleBits Pressure Sensor Module, a circuit-board with simple, intuitive functions that enables creation of sophisticated engineered electronics by snapping small magnets together. littleBits is an open source library of electronic modules that snap together with magnets for prototyping, learning and fun. The blocks allow you to create complex structures with very little engineering knowledge. Described by the Financial Times as "The Lego of the digital age", littleBits proves the versatility and simple functionality that allow exploration of the world of electronics in a very accessible way.

FSRŪ 402 is part of Interlink Electronics FSRŪ 400 series, the most versatile force sensor technology on the market. FSRsŪ are robust polymer thick film (PTF) two-wire devices that exhibit a decrease in resistance with increase in the force applied to the surface of the sensor. This force is optimized for use in human touch control of electronic devices in diverse applications such as automotive, electronics, medical systems, industrial control and robotics. FSRŪ 400 sensors are cost effective, ultra thin, robust, simple & easy to integrate into a wide range of user interface and data capture solutions.

"Interlink is delighted that littleBits has chosen our most versatile sensor as an integral component of one of its input modules (Bits)", said Declan Flannery, Chief Operating Officer. "littleBits open innovation approach combined with our very versatile technology will undoubtedly help to unleash the creativity of the next generation of problem solvers and inspire the next Steve Jobs in all of us".

Interlink Electronics is a global leader in the design of patented Force-Sensing Resistor (FSRŪ) technology. For over 27 years, Interlink Electronics' solutions have focused on handheld user input, menu navigation, cursor control, & other intuitive interface technologies for the world's top electronics manufacturers.
