Cypress 14-inch TrueTouch screen with multi-input

Cypress Semiconductor has shown off a 14-inch prototype tablet that uses its capacitive TrueTouch touchscreen technology to track up to 10 fingers at the same time. Cypress manufactures screens for existing smartphones, although they are not named, and believes it can apply its technology to larger devices, with screens sized at between 7 and 17 inches. The Cypress technology is Windows 7 certified, so it can be used in any PC that runs on the operating system.

The company believes touchscreens will be an everyday part of our lives in the near future, and hopes to be one of the many companies involved in bringing the technology into the mainstream, along with software developers and designers. There is no indication of when the first readily available products that aren't cellphones and use Cypress' TrueTouch technology will arrive.
