New TrueTouch™ Solutions for Touchscreens
Touchscreens have become the user interface of choice for many applications. Touchscreen technology addresses the conflicting demands for smaller products with larger displays by eliminating traditional buttons without sacrificing screen size. To address this trend, Cypress has introduced the TrueTouch™ touchscreen solutions, based on the PSoC® architecture.
The TrueTouch family is the industry’s broadest, including a single-chip touchscreen solution that can interpret up to 10 inputs from all areas of the screen simultaneously. This capability, known as “multi-touch all-point,” enables designers to create new usage models for products such as mobile handsets, portable media players (PMPs), GPS systems and other products.
Examples of applications well-suited for multi-touch all-point functionality include keyboard implementations, inputting multiple locations into a GPS, playing video games on a mobile handset, and making multiple adjustments to sound and/or video settings on a PMP.
In addition to the multi-touch all-point products, the TrueTouch family includes devices that perform traditional touchscreen functions including interpreting single touches, and gestures such as tap, double-tap, pan, pinch, scroll, and rotate. All of the TrueTouch offerings include the legendary flexibility of the PSoC architecture, allowing designers to make last-minute changes without having to change board layout.
