Atmel® touch technologies make human interfaces intuitive, uniquely personal and simply fun to use. From touchscreen controllers to touch sensors and everything in between, advanced Atmel touch solutions enable you to create smart and differentiated designs with the exceptional user experiences that will delight consumers. All these solutions meet your high-performance standards, not to mention your power consumption expectations. Atmel also offers configuration options that enable you to implement chips in all kinds of applications.

  • Touchscreen Controllers — Atmel maXTouch® touchscreen controller technology delivers superior performance and low power consumption, enabling touch interfaces that identify, qualify and track the user’s contacts with exceptional precision and sensitivity, while ignoring unintended touches. The latest maXTouch U Series devices provide exceptional touch performance that supports finger, thin stylus, thick glove, and hover operations, as well as robust touches even when the touchscreen is coated with moisture or rain drops.
  • Touch Sensors — Atmel XSense® touch sensors provide a highly flexible, high-performance alternative to traditional touch sensors, enabling you to develop sleek, lightweight touch-based designs that are edgeless, have narrow borders, and feature curved surfaces.
  • Buttons, Sliders and Wheels — Market-proven Atmel technology for implementing non-mechanical buttons, sliders and wheels (BSW) offers superior precision and reliability on any touch-sensitive device. The technology delivers low power and low cost, and supports simple configurations of 1 to 10 buttons with scanned-matrix configurations employing up to 48 buttons.
  • Atmel QTouch Library — The Atmel QTouch® Library makes it simple to embed capacitive-touch buttons, sliders and wheels (BSW) functionality into general-purpose Atmel ARM®-based and AVR® microcontroller applications. The royalty-free QTouch Library provides several library files for each device and supports different numbers of touch channels, enabling both flexibility and efficiency in touch applications.

Transform the User Experience with Atmel Touch Controllers

For the user, touch technology is all about sensitivity, speed, and accuracy—in other words, an interface that senses and responds to their touches precisely and reliably, and in the blink of an eye.

As a global leader in capacitive touch technology with more than 15 years of experience, Atmel is uniquely qualified to help you quickly and cost-effectively deliver transformative touch innovations to the market. Robust, noise-resistant Atmel integrated circuits (ICs) are designed to provide superior performance and response times while conserving power and saving space. For enhanced functionality and design ease, you can also integrate leading-edge touch technology with Atmel ARM-based and AVR microcontrollers.
