Cypress TrueTouch® Touchscreen Solution Supports Android 3.0 Platform
Easy-to-Use Driver Supports Popular Android Honeycomb Platform Optimized for Tablets
SAN JOSE, Calif., 2011년 4월 21일 – Cypress Semiconductor Corp. (NASDAQ: CY) today announced that its TrueTouch™ touchscreen solution supports the Android 3.0, Honeycomb, platform. Several Honeycomb-based tablets with TrueTouch are already in the pre-production stage and many more handsets running earlier versions of Android are currently in production. The Android 3.0 platform is specifically optimized for devices with larger screen sizes, particularly tablets. It introduces a brand new, truly virtual and “holographic” user interface (UI) design, as well as an elegant, content-focused interaction model.
Android 3.0 has a new UI that brings fresh paradigms for interaction, navigation, and customization and makes them available to all applications — even those built for earlier versions of the platform. Applications written for Android 3.0 are able to use an extended set of UI objects, powerful graphics, and media capabilities to engage users in new ways.
Cypress’s TrueTouch™ solution allows users to take advantage of all the features of Android 3.0. TrueTouch provides best-in-class scan times for true multi-finger touch and superior signal-to-noise ratio for the most demanding touchscreen applications. And Cypress recently announced a new, high-performance single-chip TrueTouch™ solution for large multitouch touchscreens up to 11.6 inches. The new CY8CTMA884 family offers up to 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 improved accuracy, greater linearity, support for smaller sized fingers and the ability to resolve multiple fingers close together. Additional information about the TrueTouch solution is available at https://www.cypress.com/go/TrueTouch.
“It’s clear that the Android 3.0 platform is very popular with developers and end-users alike,” said Derek Richardson, Sr. Director of Cypress’s Large Touchscreen Business Unit. “We’re confident that TrueTouch is the best touchscreen platform to take advantage of the many benefits of the Honeycomb platform.”
The flexible TrueTouch solution allows customers to rapidly develop leading-edge solutions without having to buy turnkey modules. They have a choice of using touch sensors (glass or film) and LCDs from preferred partners, and can develop innovative mechanical designs ranging from flat to curved surfaces of varying thickness. In addition, TrueTouch devices offer Cypress’s legendary noise immunity with patented capacitive sensing technology that enables flawless operation in noisy RF and LCD environments.
In addition to the TMA884 tablet solution, the high performance TMA300 multi-touch all-point family for smaller screens provides best-in-class scan times for true multifinger touch and very high signal-to-noise ratio of more than 80:1 RMS. It also offers low power consumption (less that 1.3 mA low-power state current), best-in-class water rejection and wet-finger tracking, and more.
