Cypress Semiconductor Corp. announces its PSoC CapSense flexible touch screen controller that supports projected capacitance and surface capacitance technologies across a range of screen sizes and types. It is suitable for small screen portable devices such as mobile handsets, smart phones and portable media players, as well as for larger screens required by applications such as games, POS terminals and white goods. The same devices can implement capacitive buttons and sliders simultaneously, replacing their mechanical counterparts, as well as proximity sensing. The PSoC mixed signal array can implement functions that include driving LEDs, backlight control, motor control, power management, I/O expansion, accelerometers and ambient light sensors.
