Synaptics Updates ClearPad Tech for Better Touchscreens
Synaptics today announced Design Studio 4, Synaptics' ClearPad development technology, with a new feature called SignalClarity. These products will help smartphone makers create devices that have improved accuracy, better finger separation, and vastly improved handling of electrical noise. The signal-to-noise improvement in particular is important because it will allow handset makers to use less expensive display panels and less expensive chargers, which will in turn reduce development costs and improve time-to-market. Synaptics DS4 also adds a built-in performance diagnostic and testing tool. Design Studio 4 is available to hardware makers starting today.
lets think about this
in personal opinion i foresee this being a bad thing. less time and money means cheaper phones and cheaper phones mean easily broken.
if this is any indication as to what phones are goin to turn in to then i say keep on keepin on with what we have now.
just my opinion....
This is an advance in technology, that addresses a real engineering challenge in any touch-screen phone.
Also, striking the right balance between cost and quality is a major challenge in engineering absolutely every phone. No ph...
