SANTA CLARA, Calif., Aug. 1, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Synaptics Inc. (NASDAQ: SYNA), a leading developer of human interface solutions for mobile computing, communications and entertainment devices, today announced the release of the ClearPad™ 2300 Single-Layer Multitouch solution. The ClearPad 2300 touch controller is optimized for use with Synaptics' proprietary single-layer sensor pattern and delivers industry-leading five-finger multitouch performance using a low-cost single-layer stack up. The 2300 solution is the industry's first single-layer multitouch solution capable of supporting both film sensors, with industry-standard 150 ohms per square sheet resistance, and plastic lenses. This combination provides the lowest overall single-layer solution cost.
The ClearPad 2300 drives down smartphone bill of material (BOM) costs by eliminating a layer of patterned indium tin oxide (ITO) while still providing multitouch capability and does not require jumpers. Traditional multitouch sensors use at least two layers of ITO or a single layer of ITO with jumpers, which increase the overall material and manufacturing costs. The 2300's advanced analog front end and noise mitigation firmware algorithms eliminate the need for a separate shield, resulting in additional cost savings. The 2300 solution supports discrete film or glass sensor substrates with plastic or glass lenses and sensor-on-lens applications.
ClearPad 2300 leverages Synaptics Design Studio™ 4 (DS4), the ClearPad development solution embedded with patented SignalClarity™ Technology. Synaptics DS4 offers the most advanced and comprehensive touch system tools in the market and accelerates the ClearPad development cycle. It empowers customers to design, evaluate and optimize the performance and touch experience while streamlining the implementation of custom ClearPad sensor solutions.
"Synaptics continues to leverage its industry-leading systems expertise to provide robust, low-cost solutions optimized for a broad base of customers," said Kevin Barber, senior vice president and general manager of Synaptics Handheld Division. "With the release of the ClearPad 2300 solution, Synaptics is even better positioned to meet the needs of the fast-growing, cost-sensitive, entry-level smartphone segment."The ClearPad 2300 is currently available for mass production.
