BARCELONA, Spain, Feb. 12 /CNW/ -- Stantum Technologies
(www.stantum.com), a pioneer developer of multi-touch sensing technology, is
introducing a new version of its SMK series of multi-touch demo, evaluation
and development kits, which enable vendors and OEMs to evaluate the
performance of Stantum's technology and develop their own multi-touch
The new version, which features a 4.3-inch touch panel, will be formally
announced next week at the Mobile World Congress (Hall 2.1, Stand 2.1F67) in
Barcelona, where Stantum is demonstrating it on a Texas Instruments OMAP35xx
platform to illustrate on an industry-standard mobile platform the major
advantages of its multi-touch technology.
The demo is based on a beta version of Touch Park(TM), Stantum's new
multi-touch framework. It simulates a mobile device user interface
demonstrating Stantum's multi-touch performance in various types of
applications, such as address book, drawing, picture resize, and gaming.
At MWC, Stantum is also exhibiting its 2.5- and 3.5-inch SMK kits, whose
state-of-the-art touch panels boast the highest performance in transparency
(83% transmission) and unprecedented low activation force (10g).
Like the SMK-2.5 and 3.5, the new SMK-4.3 features:
-- Stantum's patented PMatrix(TM), a resistive multi-touch detection
platform - now with finger-pressure detection - that lets users
simultaneously move an unlimited number of fingers, fingernails or
utensils (such as styli) on a screen; and
-- Hardware kit made of a resistive-based touch-screen sensor, a
multi-touch controller board with a USB connection to the application
host processor; and
-- Drivers for Windows, MAC, and Linux operating systems.
SMK series demo, evaluation and development kits provide the best of both
worlds - the optical performance and soft touch of a capacitive touch screen
and the versatility and low cost of resistive touch screens.
