Cypress, Nvidia Partner On Next-Gen Touchscreen Solutions For Android Devices

Cypress Semiconductor Corp. (CY: Quote) said Friday it is partnering with Nvidia Corp. (NVDA: Quote) on next-generation touchscreen solutions for Android-based mobile devices based on Cypress's Gen 4 True Touch Solution and Nvidia's DirectTouch architecture.

Cypress said the new architecture utilizes the Nvidia Tegra 3 processor, the world's only 4-PLUS-1 quad-core processor with a fifth battery saver core.

DirectTouch is a new Tegra 3 technology that offloads some of the touch panel processing to one of the Tegra 3's four CPU cores for faster touch processing and an improved end-user experience, while also reducing power.

"Combining this high speed processing with the advanced analog of the Gen4 family will enable very thin displays with excellent responsiveness," the comnpan said.
