Atmel Extends Industry-Leading MaXTouch T Series Into Smartphone And Phablet Markets

SAN JOSE, Calif., Oct. 24, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Atmel ® Corporation (NASDAQ: ATML), a global leader in microcontroller and touch technology solutions, today announced the Atmel mXT640T, mXT336T, and mXT224T devices, expanding the company's popular maXTouch T series of touchscreen controllers. The new devices bring the most comprehensive touch features to support touchscreens ranging from 3.2" to 8.3" for next-generation mobile devices including smartphones, phablets and mid-size tablets.

The devices integrate a number of exceptional features that add performance and value to mobile devices including 1mm passive stylus and maXStylus (active stylus), hover capability, moisture immunity and multi-finger glove support. These devices build on the success of our single-chip maXTouch T Series products for largescreen applications – mXT2952T and mXT1664T – which were launched in the second quarter.

The T Series incorporates Atmel's Adaptive Sensing technology to enable dynamic touch classification, a feature that automatically and intelligently switches between self- and mutual-capacitance sensing to provide users a seamless transition between a finger touch, hover, passive or active stylus, or glove touch. This new feature eliminates the need for users to manually enable 'glove mode' in the operating system to differentiate between hover and glove modes. Adaptive Sensing also dramatically reduces the power consumption in the device for longer battery life. The innovative analog front-end is equipped with advanced and flexible settings to maximize the signal-to-noise ratio (SNR) prior to digital processing, eliminating signal distortions induced by water and noisy chargers.

The new T Series enables superior touch performance with single-layer sensors as compared to the most recently announced solutions. Atmel is working with a range of ITO and LCD manufacturers to support various stack-ups such as OGS, G1, GF and On-Cell which are targeted for production early next year. The combination of the maXTouch T Series devices with our innovative single-layer sensor technology provides the optimal mix of high-performance and low-system cost to our OEMs.
