NVIDIA gets partners for their DirectTouch platform

NVIDIA partners up for DirectTouch - Synaptics, Atmel, N-trig and more

| Mobile Devices, Tablets & Phones News | Posted: Feb 27, 2012 7:31 am

The big players in touch-based devices, Synaptics, Atmel, N-trig, Raydium, Cypress and Focaltech, have all just donned the Team Green shirts and agreed to get on board NVIDIA's DirectTouch platform.

 

 

DirectTouch offloads some of the work required to track and process finger input from the controller on the Tegra 3 chip, which then improves battery life and response. DirectTouch was talked of a few months ago, but at the time there was no mention of partners, or support.

Two of the biggest makers of touchscreen controllers, Synaptics and Atmel, are putting their support into DirectTouch, and N-trig is going as far as using the processing power to improve the response of capacitive styli by combining DirectTouch with DuoSense.
