Neonode Introduces NN1002 - New High Performance Multisensing Controller IC

SANTA CLARA, Calif., Oct. 16, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Neonode Inc., (Nasdaq:NEON), the optical touch technology company, announced today the release of its second-generation single chip touch and proximity IC, the NN1002. Neonode has developed the NN1002 in collaboration with Texas Instruments to improve optical-touch system performance, cost, and functionality for PCs, printers, tablets, smartphones, wearables, autos, and Internet of Things applications.

The NN1002 is developed to support efficient scanning even for larger screens such as notebooks, monitors, and larger handheld devices. The NN1002 also offers a self-scanning mode where the host can remain in sleep mode until a touch or proximity event is triggered. This self-scanning mode effectively removes the need for an external microcontroller, while lowering the total system cost for OEMs. The chip can also replace other components such as white/visible LED-drivers, and I/O port extenders.

"We are happy to introduce our second-generation, fully integrated controller which builds on the successful market acceptance of our first-generation IC, the NN1001. The chip allows manufacturers to produce low weight, high optical clarity, naked window solutions," says Thomas Eriksson, CEO and Co-founder of Neonode.

NN1002 Key Features:
  • Higher performance and lower power consumption
  • Smaller package and lower cost
  • 8 additional I/O ports for controlling backlighting and visible LEDs
  • Low power self-scanning (without host)
  • SPI pass-through option

NN1002 enables touch solutions with a wide features set and high performance standard that is among the very best available in the world today. In addition, the NN1002 does so at a low total solution cost. Multisensing touch powered by NN1002 includes features such as multi-touch, fast sweep and movement recognition, no overlay and thus no glare, low weight, thin design, low power consumption, touch with any object or glove.
