ClearPad 2300 Single Layer Multi-touch
The Synaptics ClearPad 2300 touch controller IC is optimized for use with Synaptics proprietary single-layer sensor pattern and delivers industry-leading 5-finger multi-touch performance using a low-cost, single-layer stackup. ClearPad 2300 is the industry’s first single-layer, multi-touch solution capable of supporting film sensors with industry-standard 150 ohms per square resistance and plastic lenses. This combination provides the lowest overall single-layer solution cost.
ClearPad 2300 lowers smartphone BOM cost by eliminating a layer of patterned ITO and not requiring additional jumpers, while still providing multi-touch capability. Traditional multi-touch sensors use at least two layers of ITO or a single-layer of ITO with jumpers, increasing material and manufacturing costs. Advanced analog front end and noise mitigation firmware algorithms also eliminate the need for a separate shield, resulting in additional cost savings. ClearPad 2300 supports discrete film or glass sensor substrates with plastic or glass lenses and On-Glass-Sensor applications.
ClearPad 2300 leverages Synaptics Design Studio 4 (DS4), the ClearPad development solution embedded with patented SignalClarity Technology. DS4 offers the most advanced and comprehensive touch system tools on the market and accelerates the ClearPad development cycle. It empowers customers to design, evaluate, and optimize the performance and touch experience, while streamlining the implementation of custom ClearPad sensor solutions.
