Design Studio™ Streamlines Touchscreen Design
ClearPad touch controllers are fully supported by Synaptics Design Studio, which delivers a comprehensive, start-to-finish array of tools to simplify the design of touchscreens and bring them to market faster.
Synaptics Design Studio streamlines the touchscreen design process, while reducing total design cost and accelerating the time to market. The tool suite assists designers in creating optimal products that are tightly aligned with target design and performance specifications. Design Studio works seamlessly with multiple display configurations and stack-ups, including discrete sensor, on-glass-sensor, on-cell, and in-cell solutions.
Design Studio includes tuning and configuration wizards, production test tools, and diagnostics tools that configure and test chips and modules built using Synaptics capacitive sensing technology. Choice of materials, thickness of glass, and system architecture impact touch performance. Synaptics Design Studio allows designers to set firmware parameters (such as baseline capacitance and operating frequency) to optimize the touch performance of a particular touchscreen design. The result is excellent responsiveness, sensitivity and finger-tracking. The tools also allow the designer to enable and configure advanced features such as side touch, moisture tolerance, and gesture recognition.
For integrated touch and display controllers, Design Studio also allows designers to adjust color settings -- gamma, warmth, white point, color targets, backlight intensity -- to optimize and tailor the display performance of a particular design. The result: Vibrant images, excellent color and low power consumption.
