Synaptics today announced the ClearPad 3600, 3700, and 7800, new touch panel controllers that are sensitive to pressure similar to the iPhone's 3D Touch display. The controllers are able to differentiate between micro-changes in pressure on the screen in order to power new features from device makers and app writers. The ClearPad series will let other handset designers mimic 3D Touch on their own hardware. The 3700 series is meant for flagship smartphones and includes a feature called SideTouch for edge gesturing, such as scrolling. The 3600 is meant for mass volume handsets and adds the ClearPad technology without drastically increasing the price of the controller. The 3600 also supports gloved fingers, wet-finger tracking, and gesture recognition. The 7800 series is intended for tablets and/or PCs with screens measuring up to 17.3 inches. The 3700 and 7800 series are already in mass production, and Synaptics expects the 3600 to reach production during the fourth quarter.
