Zytronic Displays Ltd has announced that it is supplying its ZXY100 touch controller solution as a discrete chipset. Zytronic is the developer and manufacturer of Projected Capacitive Technology (PCT) touchscreen products for heavy duty deployments.

The company is offering the chipset in 32, 64 and 128 channel controller versions in order to cover the full range of screen sizes.

According to Zytronic, the ZXY100 offers stronger through-glass performance, native Windows 7 support (including dual touch, to cover core gesture recognition functions) as well as faster touch detection. The chipset, which is available by special agreement, is provided as two compact ICs, a 32bit microprocessor with an ARM core preloaded with the proprietary PCT firmware and a Zytronic designed ASIC-based analog front end. This will furnish OEMs building higher volume industrial and public use touchscreen devices with the ability to integrate the high precision touch control function afforded by the ZXY100 on to their own motherboard, rather than having to attach a separate controller modulethus optimizing available space and potentially reducing cost.

ZXY100

The ZXY100 firmware contains a boot loader function enabling users to upload software updates as they become available.

The device also increases design versatility in terms of component positioning, which may assist important considerations such as efficient thermal management, Zytronic said.

The ZXY100 firmware contains a boot loader function enabling users to upload software updates as they become available. With the controller firmware readily accessed and tuned via Zytronic's driver software, this means that engineers involved in designs ranging from telematics systems, vending machines, consumer appliances, point of sale units, etc., will be able to optimize the touch control operation themselves, according to their specific requirements.
