Posted by at 12:37 am on June 1, 2010

At COMPUTEX 2010, Synaptics is showing the TouchPad-IS family of products, which can accurately recognize four-finger gestures, based on Synaptics’ new Image Sensing Technology.

The new TouchPad-IS platform also supports SmartSense technology, which prevents accidental activation of the cursor when a user’s palm unintentionally contacts the TouchPad.

Also being demo’d is ClickEQ, the industry’s first hinge-less uniform force, uniform click depth ClickPad mechanical design, which makes it easier for users to activate typical “button” actions.   The ClickPad eliminates the need for physical buttons — the TouchPad is the button — and provides a larger area for gestures and aiding in the design constraints of netbooks and other small form factors.

In addition, the new Synaptics ClickPad features ClickSmart technology, which enables users to control the left and right button commands on their ClickPad universally. Users and OEMs are not burdened with having to select click usage behaviors. ClickSmart provides a new “universal” support mode that accommodates both traditional and modern user click behaviors.

“Both content creation and consumption on the notebook PC are quickly evolving, and we continue to develop TouchPad technology that helps our OEM customers to differentiate their products and stay ahead,” said Mark Vena, vice president of Synaptics’ PC business unit. ”

Instrumental in the new Series 3 TouchPad family, are new gesture capabilities in the Synaptics Gesture Suite (SGS) and updated Synaptics Scrybe gesture work flow technology. A user-profiles feature is included that lets TouchPad users store their preferred settings and allows OEMs to offer recommended settings, which eases customer support.
