Cypress’s TrueTouch® Gen4 Touchscreen Controllers With Glove Tracking Named Editor’s Choice Product By Embedded Computing Design Magazine

Cypress Semiconductor Corp. (NASDAQ: CY) today announced that the editors of Embedded Computing Design magazine have named Cypress’s TrueTouch ® Gen4 touchscreen controller family an Editor’s Choice Product. The family delivers multiple new differentiating features, including the world’s best tracking of gloved fingers on capacitive touchscreens. Gen4 enables accurate navigation of touchscreens even with thick gloves on, greatly improving convenience for users of smartphones and other portable electronics.

The Gen4 family also offers new passive stylus support, to capture handwriting and signatures accurately, and proximity detection, which senses an object approaching the touchscreen and powers down the display before contact to avoid accidental touches. The capacitive-sensing based proximity detection feature eliminates the need for infrared (IR) sensors and provides significant cost savings. These advanced features supplement Gen4’s best-in-class water rejection and seamless operation in noisy environments. Video demonstrations of the glove tracking, passive stylus, and proximity sensing capabilities are available at www.cypress.com/touch.

“We chose the Gen4 touchscreen controller as an Editor’s Choice Product for its ability to simplify interaction with portable electronic systems and smartphones in a variety of conditions via glove tracking and other features,” said Warren Webb, Editorial Director at Embedded Computing Design.

“This recognition by the editors of Embedded Computing Design echoes the validation of these new touchscreen features that we are receiving from the world’s leading smartphone manufacturers,” said John Carey, Senior Director of TrueTouch Marketing at Cypress. “Gloved finger tracking, passive stylus support and proximity face detection deliver a better user experience and enable our customers to directly address end-user concerns.”

The Gen4 TMA467 controller tracks up to 10 fingers in thin gloves and two fingers with thicker gloves, such as those used by skiers. It delivers best-in-class accuracy and linearity for gloves of different materials and thicknesses. It automatically switches between glove and finger tracking without any intervention.
