ClearPad 3250 Features and Benefits
- Ultrathin Design
Without the need for a Discrete Sensor, ClearPad 3250 provides the thinnest solution available today, reducing thickness by up to ~1 mm, depending on the lens.
- Brighter Displays
By eliminating sensor transmitters on the color filter glass above the backlighting, the equivalent In-Cell module is 10% brighter.
- Supply Chain Efficiency
Synaptics display integration optimizes supply chain productivity by leveraging the mature and efficient display ecosystem. By embedding touch directly into the display cell, ClearPad 3250 is perfectly optimized at display companies.
- Total System Cost Savings
Synaptics reduces total system cost while adding value and performance through supply chain efficiencies and complete removal of a Discrete Sensor stackup.
- Display Compatibility
ClearPad 3250 display integration solutions with In-Cell implementation options are fully compatible with TFT-LCD, a-Si, and LTPS display types. This gives OEMs maximum flexibility and allows leveraging of current display suppliers.
