User Interface Leader Leverages Strong Innovation and IP Portfolio to Deliver Touchscreen, Capacitive Button, and Trackpad Solutions for High-Volume Applications
SAN JOSE, Calif., 2012년 9월 5일 – Cypress Semiconductor Corp. (NASDAQ: CY), the world leader in touch-sensing solutions, today announced that it has shipped over 1 billion capacitive touch units. Included in the billion units are Cypress’s TrueTouch® touchscreen controllers; CapSense® controllers for mechanical button, slider and switch replacement; and trackpad units for cursor navigation in laptop computers.
Cypress shipped its first touch-sensing solutions in 2005 with a CapSense mechanical button and slider replacement for a popular portable music player. Cypress introduced its first TrueTouch touchscreen solutions in 2007. The company added trackpads to its offerings in 2010. The rapid ramp of these solutions is attributable to numerous technical innovations, which have yielded 50 touch-centric patents granted and well over 200 in process. Cypress’s market penetration has included a wide variety of end-products, including high-volume mobile handsets, tablets, automotive applications, consumer electronics, white goods, industrial products and many more.
“Our touch-sensing business is a prime example of the success of our programmable product strategy, and Cypress’s ability to scale successful technologies,” said Cathal Phelan, Executive Vice President of Cypress’s Consumer and Computation Division. “Leveraging our PSoC® platform, we were able to quickly enter, and then dominate, multiple, fast-growing touch-sensing markets. As a result, we now have a strong leadership position in these markets with a deep IP portfolio.”
TrueTouch controllers deliver full-featured, highly accurate touchscreens from the world leader in touch technology. With the best touch performance and strongest portfolio of proprietary touch technology, TrueTouch opens the door to a new era in touch interfaces for the world’s leading manufacturers of mobile phones, tablets and other touchscreen-enabled products.
