The FingerTip family of touch controllers provides an optimal mix of low power, small size, low external part counts and versatile features. With unmatched true multi-touch performance, it’s a powerful single chip solution for thin, flexible, embedded touch panels.
ST’s latest touch screen controllers enable advanced features to support the latest active-matrix organic light-emitting diode (AMOLED) displays. It promises more power savings and extended runtimes in smartphones with faultless detection.
ST’s touch screen controllers are optimized for AMOLED display panels for smartphones, tablets, foldable and rollable phones.
ST’s FingerTip technology supports advanced features thanks to the multimode sensing technology. Supported features include gloves, thick cover, water, custom gestures, grip rejection, proximity detection, force sensing and fast report rate for gaming applications.
FingerTip’s main processor implements a powerful 32-bit Arm Cortex®-M4 core with SIMD DSP features. It provides a high level of overall touch performance and can detect, classify, and track as many as 10 finger touches at once.
The FingerTip portfolio of touch screen controllers includes:
The FingerTip FTG2-SLP provides an optimal mix of low power, small size, low external part counts and versatile features with unmatched true multi-touch performance in a single-chip touchscreen controller for thin flexible embedded display-touch panels.
