Microchip Technology Inc. has teamed up with Silicon Integrated Systems Corp. (SiS) to deliver what they flaunt as complete projected-capacitive touch (PCAP) and 3D-gesture interface modules that promise to speed development and lower costs.

The modules will make it easier to design multi-touch and 3D gesture displays with Microchip's GestIC technology, which offers a hand tracking range of up to 20cm from the display surface, noted the companies. Hand gestures are universal, hygienic and easy to learn. In addition, they enhance safety by reducing the need for precise hand-eye coordination.

3D-gesture interface modules

Microchip joined forces with SiS to deliver what they flaunt as complete PCAP and 3D-gesture interface modules that promise to speed development and cut costs.

Microchip developed the GestIC technology so that it can be readily combined with multi-touch PCAP controllers. It is the lowest-cost 3D gesture technology available on the market. In addition, GestIC sensors are constructed with standard materials and production methods, such as indium tin oxide (ITO), metal mesh and conductive ink on glass or foil. These modules from SiS claim to be the world's first to integrate 2D PCAP and 3D gesture technologies, providing a complete display solution. SiS has 30 years of experience and expertise in PC chipset products, eMMC, eMCP and projected-capacitive touch solutions.

Through this partnership with Microchip, SiS will act as an electronic developer and also provide sensor integration. The resulting modules will allow faster time to market for a range of designs, such as those in the automotive and consumer industries.
