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. The 17-inch touchscreen in Model S is the largest in a production vehicle to date, and is the first to integrate all functional controls into a touchscreen. To Model S, the TrueTouch solution brings design flexibility and a multi-touch experience that users expect even in challenging conditions.

Cypress Semiconductor Corp. today introduced new serial non-volatile Static Random Access Memories (nvSRAMs) with I2C and SPI interfaces popular with metering, industrial and automotive applications. The new devices deliver operating frequencies up to 104MHZ for the SPI devices (3.4MHz for the I2C products) and are also offered with an optional integrated Real-Time Clock (RTC) that enables time-stamping of critical data to be backed-up.
Cypress Semiconductor announced automotive qualification of its market-leading TrueTouch touchscreen and LIN capable CapSense(r) touch-sensing controllers. The devices, based on Cypress's flagship PSoC(r) programmable system-on-chip architecture, meet AEC-Q100 standards, giving Cypress the industry's broadest portfolio of automotive-qualified capacitive touch-sensing technology. The TrueTouch controllers mark the industry's first automotive-qualified capacitive touchscreen solution. The CY8C2x345 CapSense controllers pair analog resources with automotive industry standard LIN communication support, making the devices the ideal system controllers to interface with analog and capacitive touch-sensor inputs, and to control backlight LEDs and haptic actuators while communicating over the LIN bus.
