Abstract : A composite sheet transducer for producing voltage in response to stimuli and having a polymeric sheet sandwiched between a plurality of thin film conductive blocks arranged in non-conductive blocks isolated block patterns of opposed electrode assemblies to establish a network of closed circuit segments of sensors. Electric shorting between opposed overlapping blocks is thereby limited to circuit segment areas of the composite sheet to avoid interference with voltage production in other areas of the computer sheet.
