Claiming to set performance benchmarks, the STM32TS60 multi-touch, resistive touchscreen controller chip detects up to ten simultaneous touches with fingers, nails, or styli, enabling application designers to replace complex menu sequences with more direct and natural user controls. Actions with multi-touch capabilities include browsing and selecting options, handwriting and data entry, arranging and sizing windows, picking up and dragging images, and intuitive game play. The chip combines the company’s STM32 MCU architecture with PMatrix multi-touch technology from Stantum. In a 144-pin UFBGA package measuring 7 mm x 7 mm, expect volume production within the second quarter. STMICROELECTRONICS, Lexington, MA. (888) 787-3550.
