Cypress TrueTouch for Smart Touch Screen Solutions

Cypress Semiconductor has announced a new feature that supports hover detection in its capacitive touchscreen technology. Cypress’s TrueTouch drives this feature which helps in the development of smart touchscreen solutions that can sense where a finger will touch and accordingly enlarge contents like the small website links’ fonts or spots on maps, which renders them easy to find and select.

The hover detection technique emulates ‘mouseover,’ a widely used web navigation feature in the PC domain, resulting in a transformation in the mobile device’s basic navigation functions. This feature provides more precise, easier interface navigation for GPS systems, handsets, and various mobile applications.

The flexible TrueTouch solution enables its customers to develop advanced solutions speedily without buying turnkey modules. Customers can use LCDs through their preferred partners and film or glass touch sensors, for developing advanced mechanical designs that range from curved to flat surfaces with varying thickness. TrueTouch devices also provide Cypress’ well-known noise immunity feature having patented capacitive sensing technique for enabling flawless functioning under noisy LCD and RF scenarios.

The TrueTouch family of Cypress includes multitouch all-point, one-touch, multitouch gesture and offerings. The multitouch all-point feature was first provided by Cypress, which has the ability for tracking an unlimited quantity of touches. This feature helps designers to develop novel usage models for gadgets like portable media players (PMPs), GPS systems, mobile handsets, and other gadgets, and has been in high volume production since 2008.

TrueTouch is the most flexible touchscreen architecture in the industry. It empowers designers in implementing differentiated features and performing last-minute design iterations that do not require board changes. Cypress’s high-performance TMA300 multitouch all-point family provides best-in-class scan times for true multifinger touch and superior signal-to-noise ratio for the most demanding touchscreen applications.

The company has also announced a very precise passive stimulus support for tips that are only 1 mm thin, offering extra precision levels as well as control for keyboard, hand writing recognition, text entry and various productive functions.
