SANTA CLARA, Calif., Feb. 25, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Synaptics Inc. (NASDAQ:
SYNA), a leading developer of human interface solutions, today announced the
launch of its ClearPad™ 3400 high-performance capacitive touchscreen solution
for premium smartphones. As high-end smartphone designs continue to push the
envelope with even more sophisticated capabilities and high-performance
applications, from ultra-fast Web browsing to console-quality gaming, the need
for extremely accurate touchscreen performance with minimal latency and noise
interference is a must have. The ClearPad 3400 addresses this need and is
specifically designed to enable the smoothest, most precise touchscreen
experience for premium smartphones with displays of up to six inches.

Building on the strength of the ClearPad 3200, the ClearPad 3400 features a
redesigned Analog Front End (AFE), an integrated charge pump, and advanced
filtering algorithms for industry-leading Signal-to-Noise (SNR) and
Signal-to-Interference performance. With the highest level of noise immunity,
ClearPad 3400 performs with precision even in the presence of noise
interference, which can be exacerbated by a range of factors, including the
use of noisy handset power supplies. ClearPad 3400's high SNR and advanced
algorithms also enable accurate multitouch performance under a wide range of
scenarios, such as in the presence of moisture or with gloved fingers.

As OEMs also look to implement more flexible input options for consumers, the
Synaptics ClearPad 3400 allows simultaneous pen and finger touch recognition,
passive pen tracking with pinpoint accuracy, and linearity and jitter control
that functions with any number of fingers and styluses as small as 2mm.

Synaptics' world-class global engineering support, industry-leading design
tools and flexible delivery model all help simplify the process of
implementing the market-leading ClearPad family of solutions. ClearPad 3400
supports a wide range of sensor stackups, enabling thinner designs and
increased OEM flexibility. 

"The first point of interaction consumers have with their smartphones is
typically with the touchscreen, and as device sophistication continues to
accelerate, the overall touchscreen experience is becoming even more
critical," said Kevin Barber, senior vice president and general manager of the
Smart Display Division. "Synaptics built the ClearPad 3400 with this in mind.
With the ClearPad 3400, OEMs can be confident they're providing end users with
the smoothest, most accurate touch experience available today."

Synaptics will be showcasing its portfolio of human interface products at
Mobile World Congress (MWC) in Barcelona, Spain from February 25th through
February 28th in a private meeting space (Hall 2, #2MR102) by appointment
only. Customers and suppliers are encouraged to contact their Synaptics
partner to arrange a meeting time at MWC. Media are encouraged to contact to arrange a meeting time.
