Zytronix launches ARM Cortex A4 touch controller

Zytronic has added an ARM Cortex A4-based touch controller called the ZXY110. It runs at 168MHz enabling Zytronic’s self-capacitive p-cap (PCT) sensors to gain in responsiveness and precision. The processor is accompanied by two ASICs which help minimise controller footprint, while maximising touch detection performance, even through cover glass more than 10mm thick. The ZXY110 is offered in two different v ...
