Synaptics Launches ClearPad™Series 4, The World's First Integrated Touch And Display Driver In-Cell Solution

SANTA CLARA, Calif., June 5, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Synaptics Inc. (NASDAQ: SYNA), a leading developer of human interface solutions for mobile computing, communications and entertainment devices, today announced the first product in its ClearPad Series 4 integrated capacitive touch and display driver IC (TDDI) solution family, the ClearPad 4260. The In-Cell ready ClearPad 4260 supports WVGA resolution LCD low-temperature polysilicon (LTPS) displays up to 5 inches and is ten finger multi-touch capable. Leveraging Synaptics' industry leading In-Cell touch display technology, the ClearPad 4260 revolutionizes mobile capacitive touch solutions with a single chip, mobile touch and display driver IC, all targeted at the fast growing global smartphone market.

The ClearPad 4260's innovative touch and display driver integration (TDDI) architecture delivers unprecedented system advantages over traditional discrete touch and display driver implementations. The ClearPad 4260 combines Synaptics' industry leading performance multi-touch technology with the display driver (DDI) into a single chip solution that delivers improved system latency with the most advanced display noise management and best-in-class capacitive sensing performance. Synaptics' touch and display integration (TDDI) solution also enables In-Cell technology which provides a cost effective solution with a thin form factor by eliminating the discrete sensor resulting in improved display brightness and lower power consumption. This integrated solution reduces supply chain complexity by reducing the number of components and eliminating the discrete sensor.

The ClearPad 4260 also leverages Synaptics' Design Studio™4 (DS4), the ClearPad development solution which provides the most advanced and comprehensive touch system tool to accelerate the ClearPad development cycle. DS4 empowers customers to quickly and efficiently design, evaluate and optimize the performance and touch experience of their custom ClearPad sensor solution. 

"The 4260 is the first of its kind in the market which is a result of Synaptics' dedication to system advancement and innovation," said Kevin Barber, senior vice president and general manager, Handheld Division. "It provides the best way to lower cost, reduce components, reduce thickness and weight while improving system performance."  

Synaptics is actively working with leading display companies to serve major OEMs worldwide. The ClearPad 4260 will be available for mass production in Q3 2012.
