Yota Devices Double-Taps Cypress TrueTouch Gen5 for Touchscreen on Next 
Generation YotaPhone 
Two Gen5 Capacitive Touchscreen Controllers Enable "Always-On"
Dual-Screen Design Featuring Top-Performance Touch Functionality With
Gloved Finger Tracking and Water Resistance 
BARCELONA, SPAIN -- (Marketwired) -- 02/24/14 --  Cypress
Semiconductor Corp. (NASDAQ: CY) today announced its TrueTouch(R)
Gen5 capacitive touchscreen controllers will drive both displays in
the next generation YotaPhone, Yota Devices' revolutionary
"always-on" premium Android phone, which was unveiled today at Mobile
World Congress. Cypress's TMA568 controller delivers advanced
multitouch functionality to the AMOLED display, while the TMA545
controls YotaPhone's second electronic paper display. The next
generation YotaPhone leverages Gen5 by adding the market's most
accurate gloved finger tracking and most robust water tolerance to
both displays, while also contributing to the phone's thin design and
long battery life. 
YotaPhone's always-on display gives users continual access to maps,
social media content, alerts and other information people want for
extended periods of time, without having to wake up their phone. The
electronic paper display leverages Gen5's low power consumption to
preserve the smartphone's battery life. The Gen5 TMA568 controller on
the AMOLED screen works with a Cypress CapSense(R) capacitive touch
sensing controller to extend the touch area of the front screen,
allowing it to distinguish the next generation YotaPhone's specific
touch gestures from standard Android gestures. The TMA568 controller
supports an ultra-thin on-cell stackup for the front screen, made
possible by the Gen5 family's unmatched immunity to electrical noise
from displays.  
Cypress is demonstrating its TrueTouch touchscreen controllers in
Hall 2, 2E30MR at Fira Gran Via and Yota is showing the next
generation YotaPhone in booth ID30 from February 24-27, 2014. 
"YotaPhone pioneered the dual-screen usage model. Now, the next
generation YotaPhone builds on this success by applying the
world-class touchscreen performance of TrueTouch Gen5 on both
displays," said Yota Devices CEO Vladislav Martynov. "Cypress's
best-in-class touchscreen technology will help us take the
'always-on' smartphone concept to the next level." 
"Yota Devices' innovative YotaPhone dual-screen smartphone is the
perfect showcase for the advanced features and industry-leading
performance of our TrueTouch Gen5 family," said Hassane El-Khoury,
executive vice president of the Programmable Systems Division at
Cypress. "The design demonstrates Cypress's technology leadership
with gloved finger tracking, water tolerance and noise immunity that
no competitive solution can match. Additionally, it shows how the
versatility of Gen5 enables our customers to bring their visions into
Electronic noise from displays and after-market chargers can disrupt
a touchscreen's ability to operate properly. The TrueTouch Gen5
family's ChargerArmor(TM) feature delivers unprecedented 40 volt
peak-to-peak (Vpp) charger noise immunity measured from 1 to 500 kHz
with an ultra-thin 0.5-mm cover lens and a finger-size up to 22
mm--the most stringent specifications used to measure any touchscreen
controller. No competing controllers deliver noise immunity over 15
Vpp under these conditions.  
With Cypress's unique and patented DualSense(TM) technology to
execute both self-capacitance and mutual-capacitance measurements in
the same device, the Gen5 family offers the industry's best
waterproofing for seamless performance in real-world conditions,
including the presence of rain, condensation, or sweat. By combining
this powerful architecture with an industry leading 32-bit ARM(R)
Cortex(TM) M-Core processor that is known for high-efficiency
MIPS/mW, Gen5 controllers boast 120-Hz refresh rates and low power
consumption. Gen5 controllers drive the touchscreen at 10V and at
high frequency with narrow-band, single-pass scanning and advanced
hardware DSP filtering.  
Touch Leadership
 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(R)) sensor for dramatically reduced touchscreen
costs. Additional TrueTouch information is available at
