Offers a complete capacitive touch sensor offering to Synaptics’ customers
Human interface offerings provider Synaptics has embedded Design Studio4 (DS4), Synaptics’ ClearPad development offering with patented SignalClarity Technology.
Synaptics DS4 accelerates the ClearPad development cycle by empowering customers to evaluate the performance, optimise their touch experience and efficiently implement their custom ClearPad sensor offering, whereas SignalClarity Technology drives improved tracking accuracy, finger separation and environmental and electrical noise robustness, for an unmatched user experience.
Synaptics combines ASICs with DS4 and SignalClarity Technology to offer a complete capacitive touch sensor offering.
SignalClarity Technology provides an improvement in the signal-to-noise ratio for enhanced touch detection and noise immunity and the technology works with multiple display configurations including discrete sensors, sensor-on-lens, on-cell, and in-cell stackup offerings.
Synaptics DS4 includes the addition of built-in performance diagnostic and test capabilities, which were developed by leveraging the ClearPad touch offering provider.
The diagnostic views and performance evaluation tools help provide immediate feedback on potential design configurations and the built-in test capabilities provide custom-generated production test limits and customer accessible test logs.
Synaptics senior vice-president and general manager Kevin Barber said the addition of SignalClarity Technology and DS4 are great examples of Synaptic’s ability to offer complete capacitive touch offerings to its customers.
"Synaptics DS4 allows our customers to efficiently integrate our industry-leading combination of ClearPad touch sensors, firmware and software to quickly deliver leading edge solutions to the marketplace," said Kevin.
