Single-Chip TrueTouch™ Solution for Tablets Changes the Game in Large Touchscreens

Mon, 01/31/2011 - 9:57am
Cypress Semiconductor Corp. recently announced availability of a new, high-performance single-chip TrueTouch™ solution for large multitouch touch screens up to 11.6 inches. The CY8CTMA884 family offers 60 sensing I/O channels with support for up to 884 nodes on the screen, more than any other single-chip solution. Additional sensing channels are essential for greater accuracy, linearity, support for smaller sized fingers and the ability to resolve multiple fingers close together.

The CY8CTMA884 offers all the benefits users have come to expect from TrueTouch devices, including 10-finger touch support, low power consumption, grip and palm rejection, high accuracy, and fast scan times. All major tablet operating systems will be supported in this family of devices, and Cypress works closely with all the leading ITO sensor vendors, providing designers with flexibility, optimal performance and quality.

Cypress’s large-screen TrueTouch platform expands its leadership position in small-screen portable electronics – such as handsets and portable navigation devices – into large-screen portable PC products and tablets. The devices are available today, with full production to lead customers expected by the end of the first quarter.

Cypress offers the industry’s broadest portfolio of capacitive touchscreen solutions including single-touch, multitouch gesture and multitouch all-point offerings. Cypress was the first company to introduce multitouch all-point functionality, which can track 10 or more touches simultaneously. This multitouch all-point solution has been in mass production since 2008.

TrueTouch is the industry’s most flexible touchscreen architecture, which allows designers to implement differentiated features and make last-minute design iterations without board changes. In addition, TrueTouch devices offer Cypress’s world-class noise immunity with patented capacitive sensing technology that enables flawless operation in noisy RF and LCD environments.
