Cypress Semiconductor Corporation announces its PSoC CapSense flexible touch screen controller for a variety of products. They use a flexible PSoC mixed-signal array architecture to deliver high-accuracy touch screen performance that is suitable for small screen portable devices including mobile handsets, smartphones and portable media players, as well as for larger screens required by applications such as games, POS terminals and white goods. It offers designers the ability to implement multiple additional functions beyond touch screens because the same devices can implement capacitive buttons and sliders simultaneously, replacing their mechanical counterparts, as well as proximity sensing. Additional functions include driving LEDs, backlight control, motor control, power management, I/O expansion, accelerometers and ambient light sensors.
