Page 1 of 1
A new set of touch screen solutions now supports large touch screens up to 15 inches for emerging products including touch-enabled tablets, smartbooks, mobile Internet devices (MIDs), netbooks, PC notebooks and a range of industrial applications. The maXTouch technology from Atmel is targeted to enable exciting new applications and user interactions on one screen. The chip technology, combined with proprietary algorithms, will offer higher performance and faster response times to provide a better user experience. The larger screen solution is an enhancement of existing maXTouch products that provide configurability to exceed today’s user interface requirements. Advanced touch screen functionality includes unlimited touches and rejection of unintended touches; stretch/pinch and rotate gestures; stylus support; handwriting and shape recognition, including face detection on mobile phones; grip suppression and palm rejection on MIDs and netbook screens.
The lower power consumption of the maXTouch solutions enables longer battery life for portable devices to provide users more productivity and convenience. Based on the touch accuracy and linearity in maXTouch solutions, users can draw more accurately with a stylus or their fingers on touch-enabled tablets and other touch applications. These solutions come complete with a full suite of software drivers and advanced touch functionality for finger pinch to expand a screen, stylus support for character writing, and gesturing to turn pages for eBooks and multi-page applications.
