Multitouch technology has really taken off in a big way thanks to the iPhone and iPod touch in recent years, and it doesn’t look as though its momentum is going to slow down anytime soon. Synaptics continues to improve itself in this market segment by announcing its latest ClearPad 7200 Series technology that targets OEMs who design a wide range of products which require multi-finger touch capability, such as clamshell notebooks, slates/tablets and “fourth screen” devices inclusive of digital photo frames and electronics readers.
Capable of supporting glass-based screens up to 10.1” in size, the ClearPad 7200 Series will rely on a high performance multi-ASIC based architecture which can distinguish up to 10 simultaneous finger touches and complex multi-finger gestures without losing out on accuracy, promoting low latency, high report rate and precise finger disambiguation in the process. Expect to see the ClearPad 7200 Series in action where consumer electronic devices which support Microsoft Windows 7 and Linux-based operating systems like Google Android are concerned. After all, it is fully compliant with the Microsoft Windows 7 Touch API for large touchscreens, so you ought to find this to be a regular feature down the road. [Press Release]
