Atmel and Corning collaborate to develop ultra-thin capacitive touchscreens with superior multi-touch performance

Corning and Atmel are collaborating to develop ultra-thin capacitive touchscreens with superior multi-touch performance for next-generation applications. This collaboration combines Atmel XSense flexible touch sensors with 0.4mm damage-resistant Corning Gorilla Glass. Together, they deliver outstanding capacitive touch performance through thinner flat or curved cover glass. The unique circuit design of XSense enables narrower device borders, allowing for a more optimal viewing area. The combination enables industrial designers to create phones, tablets, notebooks, and other multi-touch devices with sleeker, lighter, and more contemporary touch interfaces without sacrificing reliability or performance.

xsense_screenTouch modules using cover glass thinner than 0.5 mm with relatively low conductive materials and non-optimal microcontrollers have been difficult to implement due to low signal-to-noise ratio (SNR) and aliased touch events, resulting in unsatisfactory multi-touch performance. XSense, combined with 0.4mm or curved Corning Gorilla Glass, enables exceptional multi-touch sensor panels that are thin, light, and damage-resistant. A sample device that pairs Atmel XSense flexible touch sensors with 0.4mm Gorilla Glass will be on display at Computex Taipei in Taiwan, June 3-7.
