Gen4 touch screen controllers from Cypress are in production

Cypress Semiconductor Corp. has announced that its recently introduced Gen4 family of TrueTouch touchscreen controllers are now in production ahead of schedule.

"Customer reaction to the Gen 4 products has exceeded our high expectations and is expected to set new design win records for our True Touch products," said Dhwani Vyas, Vice President of Cypress's User Interface Business Unit. "The ability to build thinner phones with flawless touchscreen performance without additional cost is proving to be extremely attractive to manufacturers. In addition, initial customer production shipments will begin in the first quarter of 2012, ahead of our previous estimates."
Cypress claims Gen4 is the first and only touchscreen IC that delivers built-in 10V Tx to drive the touch panel at 10V. Because SNR is directly proportional to the voltage at which the panel is driven, this feature allows Cypress to offer nearly four times the SNR of the next closest competitor, as per Cypress.

Gen4 also claimed to be the world's lowest active power consumption of 2 mW, and a deep sleep mode that only draws 1.8 uW with wake-up via address match on the COM port. Gen4 also said to offer more capacitive sensing I/O than the competition.
