Transparent touchscreen tech combines multi-touch and stylus input with 1 sensor

June 4, 2012 – BUSINESS WIRE — Multi-touch touchscreen display technology developer Stantum and film material supplier Nissha Printing Co., Ltd. introduced FineTouch Z pressure-based transparent touch-panel technology for next-generation displays.

FineTouch Z combines multi-touch capabilities with stylus input with a single sensor. It replaces projected capacitive (PCAP) sensors combined with either an electro-magnetic or a battery-powered stylus, and doesn’t require a dedicated active stylus.

FineTouch Z boasts optical clarity and works with any type of conductive or non-conductive object. The display technology also features unlimited multi-touch with neither ghost nor masking effects and offers high-resolution, smart touch capability, an ultra-fast scanning engine, and low-power consumption.

FineTouch Z is powered by Stantum’s Interpolated Voltage Sensing Matrix (iVSM) touch-and-write technology. iVSM technology supports Windows and Android operating systems on x86 and ARM-based platforms and lets OEMs design tablet displays that allow as many as 10 simultaneous touches combined with high-resolution handwriting input.

Engineering samples are now available on a limited basis; mass production will begin in Q4 2012.

The companies will demonstrate FineTouch Z for customers, analysts, and partners at SID Display Week, Booth 437.
