ASUS chooses Atmel XSense touch sensor for tablets
Atmel has announced that mobile computing provider ASUS has selected the recently launched Atmel XSense touch sensor for a next-generation tablet scheduled to be released to the market in Q1 2013.
Jalil Shaikh, vice president and general manager of touch materials, Atmel, says: "ASUS is one of the first companies to integrate and bring to market our touch sensor technology to the mass market taking advantage of XSense's improved performance and better noise immunity."
ASUS already offers several Android-based tablets, including its Eee Pad Transformer powered by Atmel maXTouch technology.
Optimal for a wide range of touchscreen products, XSense touch sensors provide a high-performance alternative to existing touch sensors.
XSense is said to enables thinner sensor stacks with superior performance to enable original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) to develop larger, lighter, sleeker, curved and edgeless designs for smartphones, tablets, ultrabooks and a plethora of next-generation touch-enabled products.
