Samsung has chosen Atmel Corp.'s maXTouch E Series solution for the Samsung Focus Flash 1677 and Samsung Focus S 1937 smartphones.

Atmel's maXTouch E Series product line includes single-chip controllers targeted at every touchscreen size and application. It offers a capacitive touch engine (CTE) with noise avoidance and noise suppression capabilities. Compared to the company's previous products, it offers improved touch sensing, faster responsiveness, lower power consumption and thinner form factors.

The devices also claim higher signal-to-noise ratio, higher accuracy including reduced unintended touches, brighter displays, improved resistance to moisture, better operation with noisy chargers and a wider range of panel options. Also, the E Series can detect even the lightest touch, including that of a fingernail, as well as active and passive conductive styluses.

The Samsung Focus Flash runs on Windows 7.5 Mango OS and also includes a large 3.7inch Super Amoled display, touch-enabled by Atmel's E Series, allowing for a richer colour display and market-leading touch response and device performance rates. The Samsung Focus S runs on Windows 7 and features the Super Amoled touchscreen, powered by Atmel's E Series technology, providing sharp, cinema-quality images throughout the multi-touch user interface.
