Synaptics ClickPad™ 2.0 Wins CES Innovations 2014 Design And Engineering Award

SAN JOSE, Calif., Nov. 19, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --  Synaptics Inc. (NASDAQ: SYNA), a leading developer of human interface solutions, today announced that it was named as an International CES Innovations 2014 Design and Engineering Awards Honoree for its ClickPad™ 2.0 technology. The Synaptics ClickPad 2.0 is the most advanced capacitive-sensing notebook touchpad technology available combining a unique hinge-spring mechanism for best in class durability and the industry's most responsive and consistent click performance.

ClickPad 2.0 enables all the functionality of a standard notebook touchpad, but with a sleek and elegant surface that eliminates the need for physical buttons. With no buttons, ClickPad 2.0 allows OEMs to integrate up to 30 percent larger sensors than standard touchpads, resulting in more surface area for new features. ClickPad 2.0 also delivers the thinnest possible ClickPad design with no warping or unnecessary movement. This enhanced durability reduces the amount of flexure in the overall design and eliminates activation dead zones typically found in touchpad corners.  Along with the mechanical design, Synaptics developed TypeGuard™, an accidental contact mitigation algorithm that can differentiate between a finger and a palm, helping to minimize unintended inputs.

"Synaptics is delighted that ClickPad 2.0 is being recognized by the Consumer Electronics Association for the level of innovation and design quality it brings to the notebook PC market," said Godfrey Cheng, vice president of marketing, Synaptics Human Interface Systems Design (HISD) division. "Designed from top to bottom by Synaptics engineers, ClickPad 2.0 delivers greatly improved tactile feedback and consistent button activation, giving OEMs the ability to provide the best touchpad experience in the market for consumers."

The Innovations Design and Engineering Awards, produced by the Consumer Electronics Association, is an annual competition honoring outstanding design and engineering in consumer electronics products since 1976. New technologies are judged based on engineering achievement and specs; aesthetic and design qualities; and user value and innovative features, among other key attributes. 2014 honorees, including the Synaptics ClickPad 2.0, will be on display at the Innovations Design and Engineering Awards Showcase at the 2014 International CES tradeshow in Las Vegas from January 7-10.

Synaptics will showcase ClickPad 2.0 and its entire portfolio of human interface products at the 2014 Consumer Electronics Show. Customers and suppliers are encouraged to contact their Synaptics partner to arrange a meeting time at CES. Media are encouraged to contact to arrange a meeting time.
