Canesta Inc., a developer of electronic perception technology, has joined the ARM PrimeXsysT Community Program. In taking part of the program, Canesta will be able to offer a technology that enables electronic devices track nearby objects and viewing them in real-time 3D.

ARM PrimeXsys platforms provide system developers with all of the hardware, software, and verification IP necessary to design a SoC. Canesta has ported to the PrimeXsys platform its projection keyboard technology, the first application of Canesta's electronic perception technology. By integrating the three-chip chipset into a wireless device, a full size "QWERTY" keyboard and mouse will be created by projected beams of light.

"With ARM as the microprocessor technology of choice in more than 85 percent of the world's mobile phones, Canesta's technology adds a key ingredient to the handset design portfolio of smart phones and PDAs by offering the benefits of a full QWERTY keyboard in a tiny physical space," said Oliver Gunasekara, director, Wireless Segment, ARM.
