Atmel Corporation (San Jose, CA) announced production of the mXT106xT2 family of devices, expanding the company’s popular maXTouch T series of touchscreen controllers. The new touchscreen controllers incorporate all of the latest features flagship smartphones have with hover, stylus, superior noise immunity, but now are available in the larger format market for screen sizes of 7 - 8.9”. Atmel’s maXTouch is the only product available today to enable finger hover up to 20mm on devices larger than a smartphone. This capability allows the user to interact with their device without physically making contact with the screen through gestures, zoom, etc. Other features include:

• Adaptive Sensing technology, enabling dynamic touch classification, a feature that automatically and intelligently switches between self- and mutual-capacitance sensing.
• A seamless transition between a finger touch, hover, passive or active stylus or glove touch.
• Stylus capabilities in either active stylus through Atmel’s maXStylus or passive stylus with a 1mm tip to facilitate more precise selection.
