TOKYO and SAN JOSE, Calif., Oct. 13, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Synaptics Incorporated (NASDAQ: SYNA), the leading developer of human interface solutions, today announced expansion of its touch controller and display driver integration (TDDI) product portfolio with its new TD4303 hybrid in-cell solution. Synaptics TouchView TDDI technology marked an inflection point for a new era in smartphone architectures and is today shipping in mass production volumes -- with many of the world's top brands now releasing TDDI-based models to the market.

The TouchView TD4303 further expands Synaptics' ability to address this fast growing TDDI-based smartphone market with its first-in-the-industry support for hybrid in-cell panel technology. TD4303 supports Full HD resolution and includes integrated RAM which provides lower power and enables an extended feature-set - ideal for mainstream LTPS-based smartphones.

"Our first-to-market leadership in TDDI technology has garnered terrific traction and we are today shipping significant volumes of these solutions," said Kevin Barber, senior vice president, general manager, Smart Display Division, Synaptics. "Synaptics is now the only company with TDDI solutions supporting both full in-cell and hybrid in-cell technology, and as we continue to fill out our TDDI portfolio, it is highly gratifying to see our vision of touch and display integration come to fruition."

Synaptics' TouchView TDDI portfolio spans resolutions ranging from HD to WQHD and is designed to accelerate the architectural revolution of smartphones. TouchView combines Synaptics' best-in-class touch controller IP and display driver technology with its proven systems level expertise into a single-chip solution. TDDI delivers lower overall system cost, simplifies the supply chain and enables thinner devices, brighter displays and borderless designs for both full in-cell and hybrid in-cell panel stack-ups.

Synaptics TouchView solutions feature innovative and patented touch controller capabilities, such as support for up to ten fingers, passive stylus, face detection, low-power wake-up gestures, gloved touch, and superior moisture performance.
