"Car makers' requirements for the infotainment user interface are
significantly different from those of consumer electronics touchscreens,
but up until now, touchscreen solutions have been developed primarily
for the consumer market and only qualified later to meet automotive
requirements," said Dr.
Cypress is demonstrating the TrueTouch CYAT817 touchscreen controller
and its complete embedded systems solution portfolio at CES in South
Hall 2 of the
The Automotive TrueTouch CYAT817 controller family implements its Hover and Force Touch features while meeting stringent automotive electromagnetic interference (EMI) and electromagnetic compatibility (EMC) requirements. With a power-efficient 32-bit Arm® Cortex®-M processor and optimized analog front-end, each controller can replace the mechanical on/off button of an infotainment system with a capacitive touch sensor, enabling sleek, modern interior designs. The controllers deliver faster response times by integrating decision and control processing on-chip for acoustic and haptic feedback so that systems are no longer required to transmit data on a touch input via Controller Area Network (CAN) or a Low-Voltage Differential Signaling (LVDS) backchannel for distributed implementations to be processed in the head-unit.
The CYAT817 controllers can support two standard host interfaces such as I2C and SPI, along with a CAN interface for either higher system integration or to implement redundancy for safety relevant applications per ISO 26262. The controllers protect against hacking with a cryptographic engine that securely encrypts communication with the head-unit, preventing unauthorized access of touch data containing sensitive user information that could allow reverse engineering of PINs or passwords.
Cypress AutoArmor™ meets car manufacturers' most challenging
The Automotive TrueTouch CYAT817 controllers are currently sampling, with AEC-Q100 fully automotive-qualified products expected in the second quarter of 2018. The controllers are available in automotive-friendly 128-pin and 100-pin TQFP packages.
Cypress' TrueTouch technology provides leading noise immunity, SNR, waterproofing, accuracy and linearity, along with fast refresh rates and low power consumption. The flexible TrueTouch solution allows customers to rapidly develop leading-edge solutions without having to buy turnkey modules. They have a choice of using touch sensors (glass or film) and LCDs from preferred partners, and can develop innovative mechanical designs ranging from flat to curved surfaces of varying thickness. The patented capacitive sensing technology of TrueTouch devices offers robust noise immunity that enables flawless operation in noisy RF and LCD environments.
