SAN JOSE, Calif., Nov. 20, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Synaptics Inc. (NASDAQ: SYNA), a leading developer of human interface solutions, today announced that Google has selected the ClearPad(®) 3350 capacitive touchscreen solution to power its latest flagship smartphone device, the Nexus 5. As a single-chip touch controller solution, which integrates touch directly in the display, ClearPad 3350 enables leading OEMs to develop thinner, lighter, brighter and more responsive smartphone touchscreens. With ClearPad 3350, Nexus 5 users can experience the industry's first full high-definition (HD) In-Cell touchscreen, along with best-in-class touch sensitivity. Clearpad 3350 also incorporates software filters for excellent noise avoidance, while providing 10-finger multi-touch and up to 120 Hz touch refresh rates.

First introduced in 2011, Synaptics' patent-pending In-Cell touchscreen technology pushes the boundaries for device form factor and user input responsiveness in the Nexus 5. Working in close collaboration with LCD display manufacturers, Synaptics developed the ClearPad In-Cell technology by integrating touch functionality directly into the device's LCD display versus an additional discrete sensor layer. As a result, OEMs are able to deliver even slimmer devices with virtually zero display noise during touch sensing.

ClearPad 3350 Key Benefits:

    --  Ultra-thin Designs: Provides the thinnest solution available today by
        reducing the thickness by up to ~1mm, depending on the cover lens used.
    --  Brighter Displays: Increases the brightness by 10% by eliminating sensor
        transmitters on the color filter glass.
    --  Total System Cost Savings: Reduces total system cost through supply
        chain efficiencies and complete removal of a discrete sensor stackup.
    --  Display Compatibility: Provides maximum flexibility to the OEMs by
        making the solution fully compatible with TFT-LCD, a-Si and LTPS display
    --  User Interaction Features: Provides features like glove operation and
        stylus tracking by utilizing advanced trans-capacitance sensing in the
        display integrated systems.

"The Nexus brand of devices has long been known for innovative design and functionality, and our ClearPad technology supports this legacy by providing end users with the absolute best touchscreen experience available today," said Kevin Barber, senior vice president and general manager, Smart Display Division for Synaptics. "This latest design win with Google further underscores Synaptics' growing leadership in the mobile market and our commitment to forging strong partnerships across the mobile ecosystem to deliver groundbreaking, marketleading touchscreen technologies."

Synaptics will showcase its entire portfolio of human interface products at the 2014 Consumer Electronics Show. Customers and suppliers are encouraged to contact their Synaptics partner to arrange a meeting time at CES. Media are encouraged to contact synaptics@text100.com to arrange a meeting time.
