The ClearPad™ Series 7 Family
ClearPad Series 7 touchscreen solutions are optimized to meet the advanced user input needs of Android and Windows 8.x devices with large touchscreens. ClearPad Series 7 enables OEMs to deliver the most compelling and highly differentiated products to market with the shortest development times and lowest costs.
Optimized for Tablets and Clamshell PCs
Synaptics ClearPad Series 7 deliver excellent performance and compact single-ASIC architectures for tablets, slates, convertibles / hybrid PCs, touch-driven notebooks, and e-readers.
ClearPad 7020 is designed for touch active areas up to 8.2”, and features high performance, low power operation, and a compact footprint.
ClearPad 7300, 7060 and 7040 are high performance and compact single-ASIC solutions for Android and Windows 8.x large touchscreens up to 12”. They offer high performance and small form factors in easy-to-integrate single-ASIC offerings. ClearPad 7300 family ASICs deliver extremely low power consumption and require minimal passive components—only four capacitors—to enable lighter, thinner form factors while reducing development time and integration effort.
ClearPad 7501 and 7508 are the premier single-ASIC solutions designed to meet the needs of Android and Windows 8.x tablets, convertible / hybrid PCs and clamshell PCs with touch displays up to 15.6” diagonal. The 7500 family of ASICs support premium features such as active pen and proximity sensing without adding cost to their high-performance touch sensing capabilities.
