Cypress Semiconductor Corp.today announced its TrueTouch capacitive touchscreen controllers support metal mesh sensors from Fujifilm. Metal mesh sensors deliver better scanning performance than traditional indium tin oxide (ITO) sensors, and they are easier to manufacture, cutting cost and design time.
Unlike ITO, metal mesh sensors are bendable, allowing designers to use capacitive touch capability with flexible displays and curved surfaces. Cypress offers the CY3290-TMA500 and CYTK58 TrueTouch Evaluation Kits that enable customers to design with Fujifilm metal mesh sensors and to leverage the industry-leading features of the TrueTouch portfolio.
Manufacturing with metal mesh sensors enables lower cost phones to integrate capacitive touch technology. The technology improves touchscreen sensitivity and delivers robust noise immunity. Cypress has partnered with Fujifilm and other leading metal mesh vendors to make the technology accessible to its customers.
