Three touch controllers are designed for automotive use
Three touch controllers have been designed specifically for the automotive market, with regard to reliability requirements and lifetime. The Synaptics ClearPad S7880, S7881, and S7882 touchscreen controllers address the evolution of vehicle cockpits.
They include pressure-sensing ClearForce technology, proximity detection, provide performance while wearing gloves, and under moist screen or finger conditions. They meet ISO 11452 standards for automotive EMC, AEC-Q100 specifications for harsh automotive environments, and are supported by full PPAP documentation.
The controllers are sampling now, with mass production expected in Q4.
