Active Stylus Support

maXTouch U Series controllers support the Atmel maXStylus® active stylus.

» More about Active Stylus

Passive Stylus Support

The maXTouch U Series also supports a passive stylus with tips as small as 1.0 mm. This allows users to perform touch operations with any ordinary metallic ballpoint pen or mechanical pencil.

Glove Touch Support

maXTouch U Series touch controllers can sense multi-finger glove touches. The advanced architecture has superior SNR (signal to noise ratio) that allows sensing with gloves up to 5-mm thick.

Moisture and Water Droplet Touch Support

Regardless of the operating environment, maXTouch U Series chips are designed for robust operations. Dry or wet, hot or cold, they will take on rainy weather and sweaty hands without any sacrifice of touch performance.

Flawless Touch Performance

Enable your end users to achieve flawless touch performance using any charger. maXCharger® Technology—another key maXTouch U Series feature—makes it possible to control charger noise.

 

Lowest Power Consumption

With analog and digital filtering, efficiently combat any noise source with the least power consumption in the industry.

Shorter Design Cycle

You won't need to develop any firmware to configure your controller for a particular touch sensor stack-up, display, or charger. Thinner sensors eliminate the need for synchronization to the display or dedicated listening channels. This makes maXTouch U Series devices as easy to develop with as previous-generation maXTouch devices.

 
 

More Vivid Displays

Build thinner, lighter smartphones, tablets, notebooks and Ultrabooks with brighter, more vivid displays. Our thinner sensors, a key maXTouch U Series feature, let you use the latest sensor constructions with the noisiest displays, while still delivering unbeatable touchscreen performance.
