Piezo Switches

A piezo switch is an electrical switch based on the piezoelectric effect. The charge generated by the piezoelectric element in the switch is typically used to turn on an integrated semiconductor device such as a field effect transistor (FET), causing the switch assembly's output to be active, or "on".[1] When the FET is on, current can flow through it as with a conventional metal contact-based switch.
