Cypress's TrueTouch Touchscreen Solution Helps Rugged Kyocera DuraForce Smartphone Handle Harsh Environments
Kyocera chose Cypress's TrueTouch TMA445 controller for its ability to provide the touchscreen display with best-in-class tracking of fingers in gloves of various materials and thicknesses. The controller automatically switches between glove and finger tracking without requiring the user to switch settings. In addition, it provides industry-leading water tolerance and immunity to electronic noise from aftermarket chargers and displays.
"We are pleased that Kyocera has selected our TrueTouch touchscreen solution to power its rugged DuraForce smartphone," said
TrueTouch features Cypress's patented DualSense™ technology that executes both self-capacitance and mutual-capacitance measurements in the same device. The result is the industry's best water rejection and wet finger tracking for seamless performance in real-world conditions, including the presence of rain, condensation or sweat. Additionally, DualSense technology delivers immunity to charger noise of up to 35V peak-to-peak (Vpp) from 1-500 kHz, with a 0.5-mm cover lens and a 9-mm-wide finger.
Cypress's touch-sensing portfolio is the industry's broadest and most well-adopted, encompassing TrueTouch, CapSense, and TrackPad solutions. The company's unmatched IP portfolio is backed by more than 100 capacitive touch-sensing patents. The IP includes true, single-layer sensor solutions with Cypress's Single-Layer Independent Multi-touch (SLIM®) sensor for dramatically reduced touchscreen costs. Additional TrueTouch information is available at touch.cypress.com.
