Atmel will exhibit their maXTouch mXT224 capacitive touchscreen controller at the 2010 International CES.
The maXTouch mXT224 capacitive touchscreen controller also has been named an International CES Innovations 2010 Design and Engineering Awards Honoree.
The mXT224 is the first capacitive touchscreen solution able to support the touch of a finger, stylus or fingernails for drawing or signature capture and character recognition.
It is, according to Atmel, so sensitive that it can even detect touches from a user that has gloves on.
It has 224 nodes that allow it to accurately report the positions of unlimited, simultaneous touches and can completely rescan the screen every 4/1000 of a second (4 mS) to give the user an instant response. Atmel's mXT224 also includes fast performance to make it the world's first touchscreen solution suitable for advanced touch screen functionality, such as rejection of unintended touches, stretch/pinch and rotate gestures, handwriting and shape recognition on mobile phones, mobile Internet devices (MID) and Netbook screens surpassing 10 inches.
Atmel is a worldwide leader in the design and manufacture of capacitive touch solutions, microcontrollers, advanced logic, mixed-signal, nonvolatile memory and radio frequency (RF) components. Leveraging one of the industry's broadest intellectual property (IP) technology portfolios, Atmel is able to provide the electronics industry with complete system solutions focused on consumer, industrial, security, communications, computing and automotive markets.
