AlSentis® launches standard AlSentis® HSS™ discrete touch input chipsets

Holland, Michigan, USA  August 2, 2013 – AlSentis, LLC has finalized and launched production of their first standard discrete chipsets powered by AlSentis® HSS™ touch recognition technology.  This launch includes 1-6 input and 1-15 input families of discrete touch chipsets in a variety of packages. 

Microchip Technology Inc. will manufacture and distribute AlSentis chipsets.  AlSentis® HSS™ technology has won attention because of its ability to identify exactly when a surface touch occurs while inherently overcoming manufacturing and environmental variance, unlike capacitive touch sensing solutions that use a pre-determined threshold that is extremely sensitive to variance of all sorts.

Development kits containing these new families of chipsets are in development and will soon be available to the market.

Brands are the properties of their respective owners.
