Cypress Semiconductor Corp today announced its TrueTouch and CapSense controllers drive the capacitive touchscreen, buttons and sliders in the new 2013 Toyota Avalon. The TrueTouch-based 7-inch capacitive touchscreen delivers very clear images and highly responsive multi-touch performance for the navigation system and infotainment control. The stylish, simple-to-adjust IntelliTouch™ capacitive buttons and slider controls for the audio and climate control systems are based on CapSense. The touchscreen and CapSense controls replace a resistive touchscreen and mechanical buttons respectively, dramatically improving the look and functionality of the Avalon interior. The control systems were designed by global automotive supplier DENSO for Toyota Motor Corporation.
Cypress Semiconductor Corp today announced that Tesla Motors has selected its TrueTouch automotive touchscreen solution for the infotainment system in Model S, the world’s first premium electric sedan.
