Cypress provides touchscreen solution for world's smallest Windows 7 mobile phone handset
July 21, 2011 // Paul Buckley
Fujitsu Limited has selected Cypress Semiconductor's TrueTouch touchscreen solution to implement the touchscreens in the company’s new F-07C, F-09C, and F-12C mobile phones, available from NTT DOCOMO. The hot new Fujitsu phones are each based on different operating systems and offer different features, but all rely on TrueTouch to implement brilliant, responsive touchscreens.
The F-07C claims to be the world’s smallest Windows 7 handset and offers a 4-inch, 1024 x 600 display; enhanced security and a practical mobile-wallet function preinstalled. The F-09C takes advantage of Cypress’s waterproofing functionality to offer a waterproof body with a responsive, rotating 3.5 touchscreen that offers vibrant 3D experiences. The F-09C features a 16.3-megapixel camera capable of capturing full HD movies. The F-12C Android smartphone features a 3.7-inch bright color liquid display and voice-enhancement capability for extra-clear audio.
Cypress’s TrueTouch solution claims to offer the world’s widest array of features, including 1-mm passive stylus support, proximity detection, waterproofing and the Charger Armor feature that enables mobile phones to operate in the presence of noisy chargers. The features are made possible by the patent-pending TrueTouch ability to execute both self-capacitance and mutual-capacitance measurements in the same device - and switch dynamically between the two in application.
