Reinventing the Human-Computer Interface (HCI)
Synaptics PC solutions raise the bar for notebook and Ultrabook interfaces. From our groundbreaking ForcePad™ solution built for the demands of Windows 8 to our ThinTouch™ keyboard to our leading edge ClearPad™ 7, Synaptics technology is enabling all new capabilities in today’s most advanced devices.
Synaptics reinvents the human-computer interface with three key notebook innovation platform capabilities:
- ForcePad™ - The ultimate next-generation TouchPad is a multi-finger, variable force detection, capacitive TouchPad™ that offers a large “modern touchpad” gesture area that is up to 40% thinner than today’s ClickPads. This enables thinner and lighter Ultrabooks, making it ideal for the fast and fluid Windows 8 touch experience by adding a new dimension of control to the human-computer interaction.
- ThinTouch™ - The definitive ultrathin keyboard technology that complements the rapidly growing trends of thinner form factors and improved battery life. The latest design innovations achieve 40% reduction in thickness from today’s conventional keyboards, improved manufacturability and reliability, as well as improved backlighting. With the addition of capacitive technology, new usage models enable industry-changing, multi-modal (TouchPad, keyboard, and touchscreen) user experiences.
- ClearPad™ Series 7 - Leveraging the heritage of the ClearPad family, the high-performance Series 7 solutions are designed to meet the demanding Microsoft Windows 8 and Windows RT touchscreen requirements and now support up to 17” touchscreens. ClearPad Series 7 enables OEMs to deliver the most compelling and highly differentiated tablet devices to market with the shortest development times and lowest costs.
