The S3603 and S7611 discrete touchscreen controller solutions reduce overall costs for OEMs/ODMs while retaining many of the key features of Synaptics’ flagship portfolio including moisture performance, low-power wake-up gestures and excellent touch performance while wearing gloves. Customers leverage Synaptics’ unique SafeSense and Design Studio tools to rapidly scale and get to market faster.
“A great deal of the smartphone growth has come from low-end devices, many of which still have appealing design aesthetics. As this trend continues in both emerging and developed markets, consumers are increasingly expecting more on the performance despite the low cost. In 2016Q1, devices with prices less than $200 accounted for more than 50% of global smartphone shipments, and as a result, OEMs are focused on not only improving the design of these products but also the performance,” said Ryan Reith, program VP for IDC’s Mobile Device Trackers.
“ClearPad S3603 and S7611 are the ideal solutions for our customers looking to showcase high-quality and feature-rich touchscreens on their value-priced products, enabling them to offer consistent touchscreen capabilities across their entire lineup,” said Tim Vehling, VP, Smart Displays Division, Synaptics.
