April 13, 2011 // Paul Buckley
Atmel's maXTouch solution has been selected to power the touchscreen innovation behind the recently-announced 10.1-inch Android tablet from Acer.
The new Acer ICONIA TAB A500 / A501 tablet provides a superb mobile and home entertainment experience, with a high-resolution capacitive multitouch display, capable of tracking 10 fingers simultaneously courtesy of Atmel's market-leading maXTouch solution. The slim 13.3 mm shell packs a punch with a dual-core processor, HD video playback, 1080p output via an HDMI port, support for Adobe Flash Player, dual cameras, and 3G and Wi-Fi connectivity. The high precision and fast touch response of the maXTouch-powered screen enable an engaging gaming and HD entertainment experience.
The Atmel maXTouch solution offers higher performance, better accuracy, faster response times and lower power than competing solutions to provide a better user experience. Its true unlimited touch functionality and faster performance enable advanced features including rejection of unintended touches, multi-touch stretch/pinch and rotate gestures, and handwriting recognition on larger form factor screens, ranging from mobile Internet devices (MIDs) to PC Netbooks and notebooks. The maXTouch solution is based on Atmel's proprietary microcontroller technology, combined with software algorithms for a more robust touch solution.
