The new Atmel maXTouch mXT112E controller from Atmel Corporation is optimized for 2.8- to 3.5-inch touchscreens for consumer markets such as feature phones, digital still cameras, global positioning systems (GPS), gaming consoles, and other high-volume devices. The new controllers include all the proven functions of the maXTouch E series tailored to meet the precise needs of these consumer devices.
The Atmel maXTouch mXT112E enables true single-layer touchscreens, resulting in screens that are thinner, lighter and brighter. Similar to the Atmel E-series family, this device offers advanced signal processing algorithms to mitigate noise from a wider range of LCD displays, environmental noise, and interference from after-market chargers.
The mXT112E allows up to four simultaneous touches, a level of performance that has previously only been seen in the smartphone market. Similar to other maXTouch E series products, its advanced touch processing rejects unintentional touches caused by a gripping hand, while interpreting light touches correctly for gestures made on the devices. It can support a narrow passive stylus input even while the user’s hand is resting on the screen in a natural writing position.
