The Synaptics Tools Suite
Synaptics provides a comprehensive, start-to-finish suite of tools to help you simplify your process and deliver innovative products faster. The Synaptics Tools Suite delivers:
- Faster Time-to-Market
The tools suite simplifies the process of touch design into an intuitive user experience that takes you from beginning to end while mitigating potentially irrevocable problems that may happen down the line.
- Greater Flexibility
The tools suite also gives system integrators flexibility in what the touchscreen can do to help make designs unique, allowing for timely customization of Synaptics offerings to meet customer needs.
- Reduced Total Cost of Ownership
Get a holistic view of all aspects of touchscreen design, as well as potential problems down the line, for less time spent debugging issues, reduced sample builds, and reduced cost of taking a touch-enabled product out to market.
- Built-In Production Test Capability
Testing for production is included in the tool for reducing yield loss and test escapes.
- SignalClarity™ Our patented SignalClarity technology provides extremely robust performance against electrical noise, moisture, and temperature variations.
The Synaptics Tool Suite allows customers and partners to generate and simulate sensor patterns, bring-up, tune, configure, explore, and test ClearPad sensors to ensure optimal design—all while staying tightly integrated with your industrial design and performance specifications.
SafeSense is a sensor pattern generation and simulation tool. It is backed by over one billion production units-worth of proven systems design experience. SafeSense comprehends all of the factors that can affect touchscreen performance, such as the sensor pattern, substrate material, size, structure, stack-up, and front lens thickness. By simulating your design first, the time and expense of trial-and-error are eliminated.
SafeSense Features and Benefits
- Define your Inputs
Decide the type of design you need that will make your device stand out.
- Fine-Tune your Outputs
The tool will help you decide what works, what does not, and provides recommendations to help you understand how to get to the design that you want—all before building a single sample.
- Real-Time Exploration
Change parameters on the fly. Simple metrics allow for trade-off decisions based on your specifications.
Synaptics Design Studio offers the most advanced and comprehensive touch system in the market. It accelerates your ClearPad development cycle by empowering you to evaluate the performance, optimize your touch experience, and efficiently implement your custom ClearPad sensor solution.
