Thx for your answer. But It puzzled me again. In my mind, whatever BCM5974 or BCM5973 chip, they have the full cap sennsor measurement function,Right? Use two chips, means the ITO sensor or pattern are divided into two or three parts ? Why not use the same one?And the other Texas Instruments analog chip, controll these two chips or filter noise or some other functions?

herman_munster: You can find out more about the Freescale Smartbook reference design at: http://www.freescale.com/webapp/sps/site/prod_summary.jsp?code=RDSMARTBOOK The site includes a fact sheet that gives approximately the same level of detail as a tear-down. I can't find schematics or BOM. They do have pictures and a video.

Dear Herman: The short answer is--to support a much larger, higher reslution display than on the iPhone. Dear Richard J: Maybe you are one of the few who wants the Tablet PC Microsoft spearheaded a few years back.

Nice link, but can we PLEASE stop with the "iTouch" references? It is called "iPod Touch". It was never called "iTouch". EETimes seems to get this wrong in every Apple related article. Thanks.

NEXT UPCOMING BROADCAST
In conjunction with unveiling of EE Times’ Silicon 60 list, journalist & Silicon 60 researcher Peter Clarke hosts a conversation on startups in the electronics industry. One of Silicon Valley's great contributions to the world has been the demonstration of how the application of entrepreneurship and venture capital to electronics and semiconductor hardware can create wealth with developments in semiconductors, displays, design automation, MEMS and across the breadth of hardware developments. But in recent years concerns have been raised that traditional venture capital has turned its back on hardware-related startups in favor of software and Internet applications and services. Panelists from incubators join Peter Clarke in debate.
