Huawei Selects Cypress's TrueTouch Touchscreen Controller for Next-Generation MediaPad X2 Tablet
Jun 26 15
Cypress Semiconductor Corp. announced that Huawei has selected Cypress's TrueTouch® capacitive touchscreen solution for its next-generation MediaPad X2 tablet PC. The MediaPad X2 utilizes the TrueTouch TMA568 controller's gloved finger tracking, robust water tolerance and easy-wake gestures for its sleek 7-inch touchscreen display. Users can make calls, surf the web, play games, take pictures and use other key features even if they are wearing thick gloves or the screen is wet. In addition, the easy-wake gestures feature enables users to perform a double-tap gesture to quickly activate the device from sleep mode. The MediaPad X2 is the industry's thinnest tablet with a 7-inch display at just 7.18 mm thick, enabled in part by the TrueTouch solution's capability to support ultra-thin stackup layers in the touchscreen. The MediaPad X2's high-resolution display delivers a crisp and dynamic visual experience, along with a flawless response to touch commands. TrueTouch enables best-in-class tracking of fingers in gloves of various materials and thicknesses, and automatically switches between glove and finger tracking without requiring the user to switch settings. TrueTouch employs the industry's highest tolerance to water and immunity to electronic noise from aftermarket chargers and displays, enabling accurate touch input for the MediaPad X2 in environments where competing solutions experience false and missed touches. TrueTouch features Cypress's patented DualSense™ technology that executes both self-capacitance and mutual-capacitance measurements in the same device. Additionally, DualSense technology delivers immunity to charger noise of up to 35V peak-to-peak (Vpp) from 1-500 kHz, with a 0.5-mm cover lens and a 9-mm-wide finger.
Cypress Semiconductor Corp. Announces New Cypress Bluetooth Low Energy Solutions with Expanded Memory Enable Over-The-Air Firmware Upgrades
Jun 15 15
Cypress Semiconductor Corp. announced its highly integrated, single-chip Bluetooth® Low Energy solutions for the Internet of Things and other wireless applications now offer double the memory capacity. The PSoC® 4 BLE Programmable System-on-Chip and PRoC™ BLE Programmable Radio-on-Chip solutions each now have options with 256KB of flash and 32KB of SRAM, giving designers added flexibility by enabling over-the-air (OTA) firmware upgrades without the need for external memory. The new offerings are pin-to-pin compatible with Cypress's original Bluetooth Low Energy solutions, simplifying upgrades. Cypress's easy-to-use PSoC Creator™ integrated design environment (IDE) supports the new 256KB Bluetooth Low Energy solutions. Cypress has added support for multiple new Bluetooth Low Energy profiles in PSoC Creator, further streamlining design of a broader range of applications, including Glucose Monitoring, Environmental Sensing and Apple Notification Center Service. Cypress's customizable Bluetooth Low Energy solutions deliver unprecedented ease-of-use and integration for IoT applications, home automation, wireless Human Interface Devices (HIDs), remote controls, healthcare equipment, sports and fitness monitors, and other wearable smart devices. PRoC BLE is a Bluetooth Smart microcontroller with Cypress's CapSense® capacitive touch-sensing functionality, while PSoC 4 BLE offers expanded design versatility by adding intelligent analog and programmable digital blocks. Both solutions integrate a Bluetooth Smart radio, a high-performance 32-bit ARM® Cortex®-M0 core with ultra-low-power modes, 256KB flash memory, 36 GPIOs, and customizable serial communication blocks, timers and counters. This combination of technology delivers unmatched system value for Bluetooth Smart products, with prolonged battery life, customizable sensing capabilities, and sleek, intuitive user interfaces. Additionally, both solutions have an on-chip balun that simplifies antenna design while reducing board size and system cost.
