A market transition has already begun where LCDs are being replaced at an accelerating rate by OLEDs in mobile devices and our touch system will be a substantial beneficiary of this market dynamic.
Boulder, CO (PRWEB) October 07, 2015
SiMa Systems, a start-up fabless semiconductor company, has completed development on its Pressure Multi-Touch™ controller IC. SiMa’s IC combines a patented means of identifying very accurate point data location, both for the XY plane and the Z-axis by measuring pressure. SiMa’s touch controller not only works with standard sensor constructions and current manufacturing processes but also with new and innovative material laminates.
SiMa’s touch controller coupled with application specific sensor constructions establishes an entirely new benchmark of touch system performance. When integrated with OLEDs, performance metrics (e.g. resolution, pressure, optics, update rate and power) far exceed all current touch technologies at a much lower cost. SiMa’s CEO, Philip Coyne stated, “A market transition has already begun where LCDs are being replaced at an accelerating rate by OLEDs in mobile devices and our touch system will be a substantial beneficiary of this market dynamic.”
Since SiMa’s sensor/controller is pressure based it provides ‘certainty of touch’, assuring the user of absolute accuracy for any touch. It should also be noted SiMa’s sensor/controller operates in harsh environmental conditions far beyond the limitations of current touch technologies (e.g. impervious to moisture, temperature extremes and electric fields).
SiMa’s Pressure Multi-Touch sensor/controller redefines the User Experience with intuitive pressure based gestures. Correct interpretation of these gestures requires an accurate force measurement for ‘each’ touch point combined with exceptionable location data delivered at high update rates. Application developers are now empowered to design touch based user interfaces with virtually no limitations for all manners of input be it high certainty multiple finger touches, high resolution pen input using any implement as a stylus, or simple button replacement by touch enabling additional surfaces.
