Atmel and Corning To Offer Ultra-thin Touchscreens

Corning and Atmel are collaborating to develop ultra-thin capacitive touchscreens with high multi-touch performance for future applications.

This collaboration combines Atmel XSense flexible touch sensors with 0.4mm damage-resistant Corning Gorilla Glass. Additionally, the circuit design of XSense enables narrower device borders, allowing for a more optimal viewing area.

Touch 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. Atmel claims that 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.
