Cypress TrueTouch to support touchscreens for the new HTC 7 Surround and HTC 7 Mozart Phones
December 09, 2010 // Paul Buckley
HTC has selected Cypress Semiconductor Corp's TrueTouch solution to implement the touchscreens in the company's new HTC 7 Surround and HTC 7 Mozart mobile phones. Both of the new smartphones are based on the Windows Phone 7 Series introduced by Microsoft.
The HTC 7 Surround phone offers a 3.8-inch, WVGA, multi-touch screen with pinch-to-zoom capability. The phone features a slide-out speaker that delivers Dolby Mobile and SRS WOW HD virtual surround sound for a multi-media experience. The HTC 7 Surround is available from AT&T.
The HTC 7 Mozart phone offers a 3.7-inch, WVGA, multi-touch screen, also with pinch-to-zoom capability. Crafted from a single piece of brushed aluminum. The HTC 7 Mozart also offers high fidelity, virtual surround sound with SRS WOW HD. The HTC 7 Mozart is available from T-Mobile.
HTC chose TMA340 TrueTouch controllers, which offer Cypress's latest-generation performance. The devices have an integrated analog sensing engine for the industry's fastest and most accurate touchscreen user experience. The responsiveness allows tracking of multiple fingers simultaneously with precise x-y locations and without user delays or problems with erroneous “ghost” responses. The devices also offer Cypress's legendary noise immunity and very low power consumption – an ideal combination for today's smartphone market.
The TrueTouch solution is natively supported in the Windows Phone 7 Series platform. The support allowed HTC to implement its touchscreen interfaces without the need for developing external drivers or custom software development, speeding time-to-market.
Norm Taffe, executive vice president of Cypress's Consumer and Computation Division, said: “We’re very pleased to see Windows Phone 7 devices with TrueTouch available on the market. Developments such as these validate our strategy of offering the market’s most comprehensive, leading-edge set of touchscreen solutions.”
