Cypress Semiconductor Corp. is offering a new, high-performance single-chip TrueTouch solution for large multitouch touchscreens up to 11.6 inches. The CY8CTMA884 family offers 60 sensing I/O channels with support for up to 884 nodes on the screen, more than any other single-chip solution, according to the company. Additional sensing channels provide greater accuracy, linearity, support for smaller sized fingers, and the ability to resolve multiple fingers close together.
The CY8CTMA884 offers 10-finger touch support, low power consumption, grip and palm rejection, high accuracy, and fast scan times. All major tablet operating systems will be supported in this family of devices. The company states it is the first to offer a single-chip device to support this market.
The devices are available today, with full production to lead customers expected by the end of the first quarter.
