1. A method for fabricating a projected capacitive (PCAP) touchscreen, comprising:
assembling a cover glass with a sensor glass, wherein a first set of silver traces of the cover glass overlap a second set of silver traces of the sensor glass, wherein the overlapped first and second sets of silver traces are separated by a shield layer and an insulation layer, wherein the overlap occurs within a border, and wherein the first and second sets of silver traces share a common connector; and
applying an adhesive between a first insulating black mask (BM) layer of the cover glass and the shield layer.
