SAN JOSE, CA -- Atmel Corporation announces ASUS has selected Atmel's maXTouch controllers to power the touchscreen and active stylus pen of its newly launched 10.1" Z300 tablet. The 10.1" Z300 tablet is the world's first on-cell touchscreen with capacitive active stylus pen support enabling a precise 'pen-to-paper' writing experience for more content generation on today's digital devices. On-cell displays enable thinner designs for next-generation mobile products.
The ASUS Z300 tablet uses one of the industry's most advanced capacitive styli, Atmel's maXStylus® mXTS220—the only active pen with noise immunity capable of operating in the high display noise environment emitted by ultra-thin on-cell stackups. The touchscreen on this tablet is powered by Atmel's maXTouch® T-series touchscreen controller, featuring a revolutionary sensing architecture that combines both mutual and self-capacitance to enhance performance. Atmel's maXStylus and maXTouch integrate seamlessly to create a flawless user experience in even the most demanding conditions.
"As a leading provider of innovative mobile devices for the worldwide market, ASUS continues to bring superior products to market," said Shar Narasimhan, Senior Product Manager of Touch Marketing, Atmel Corporation. "The selection of Atmel's maXTouch controllers for the industry's first 10.1" on-cell tablet with capacitive active stylus by ASUS is further testament that we are enabling OEMs to deliver leading-edge digital lifestyle products."
"As a leading manufacturer of mobile devices, our products are only built with world-class components," said Samson Hu, Corporate Vice President & GM of Mobile Product Business Unit. "Atmel's industry-leading stylus capabilities enabled us to deliver a much thinner on-cell display stack for more elegant designs with a best-in-class active pen experience. We look forward to launching more advanced devices with intuitive human interfaces powered by Atmel."
