HARDWARE TOOLS: Java support for multi-touch interfaces


Stantum (Bordeaux, France) and IS2T SA (Nantes, France) have teamed up to enhance multi-touch technology on constrained devices, providing the ability to design human-machine interfaces for embedded devices with microprocessors providing computation performances as low as 40 MIPS.

Stantum's Digital Resistive Multi-Touch Technology provides 10+ touches, finger and stylus input for handwriting-recognition applications, finger-pressure detection, fast scanning rate and low power consumption.

The technology is particularly suited to the markets that IS2T addresses, due to its immunity to EMI issues and ability to work flawlessly with gloves. It is also suited to professional markets, allowing coexistence with Wi-Fi or Bluetooth antennas around the screen.

IS2T recently committed on providing a new release of the MicroUI software library integrating multi-touch gesture API's so that embedded designers can seamlessly design portable binary applications across different hardware variants and different devices.

The starter-kit MicroEJ-STK-STD-LPC2478QVGASMT includes the Java platform kit for NXP ARM7, the Embedded Artists LPC2478 development kit upgraded with a multi-touch QVGA display, a multi-touch pad emulator extending the PC simulation platform with multi-touch capabilities, multi-touch application examples, tutorials and videos.

IS2T provides object oriented programming solutions and provides specific solutions for consumer, industrial, security, communications, computing, automotive, military, avionics and aerospace markets.

Stantum's patented multi-touch technology portfolio is available under license of IP bricks and associated engineering and design services.
