Silence the Competition with TrueTouch®
Today´s touchscreen devices face tough environments. With form factors becoming thinner, chargers and displays becoming noisier, and consumers using their devices in harsher conditions, providing high touch performance demands a tougher touchscreen controller. TrueTouch touchscreen controllers leverage the industry's broadest capacitive touch IP portfolio to deliver a new standard for performance, taking your design to the next level and silencing the competition.
Expanding the Possibilities with TMA568 for Superphones and Tablets
With the industry's highest signal-to-noise ratio (SNR), best waterproofing capability, and largest portfolio of proprietary noise immunity solutions, TrueTouch-powered devices enable a new era of touch interaction and creativity. Gen5 introduced the world to 40 V peak-to-peak charger noise immunity. TMA568, the newest addition to the Gen5 family, combines this unmatched performance in noise with passive stylus input capability with built-in palm rejection and support for larger form factors. TMA568 delivers 58 sense I/O at a tight 3.2 mm pitch, making it the perfect choice for superphones up to 5.3 inches. It can also support tablet applications up to 8.3" at a 5 mm pitch.
TMA568 leverages our successful Gen5 chip architecture for best-in-class performance, including the new analog front end; advanced hardware DSP filtering; high frequency and voltage Tx; robust algorithms; a 120 Hz refresh rate; and single pass scanning.

Cypress holds over 100 touch-related patents that cover seven major categories of touchscreen innovation: panel construction, mutual-capacitance sensing, self-capacitance plus mutual-capacitance sensing, scanning methods, finger tracking/ID, noise immunity, and baselining. Our continued leadership in IP ensures that TrueTouch stays at the forefront of emerging touchscreen technology.
DualSense: Self-Capacitance and Mutual-Capacitance Sensing
TrueTouch is the only line of touchscreen controllers that can provide both self and mutual capacitance sensing on the same chip, and switch dynamically between the two in application. Our patented DualSense™ sensing capability (U.S. Patent Nos. 8,358,142; 8,319,505; 8,067,948) gives you the best of both technologies, enabling the development of truly advanced features for touchscreen devices like true waterproofing, passive stylus support, and hover.
Combining self plus mutual capacitance measurement with differential signal analysis in the same device delivers advanced features, like waterproofing, glove capability, passive stylus support, and hover that work in the real world for unbeatable performance.
Sensor Materials & Design
Touchscreen sensors are complex structures. They are built by sputtering indium tin oxide (ITO) onto a glass or PET (plastic film) substrate, and etching away a proprietary pattern into the ITO. The patterns and structures of layers in the sensor vary based on design need, and are custom to that individual system design.
On-stack is a traditional topology, and products are beginning to trend towards Sensor-On-Lens, direct lamination, on-cell, or in-cell systems. TrueTouch provides the ultimate design flexibility and system cost reduction with our ability to support all of these sensor materials and stackups. Our controllers can be mounted on either the FPC or the PCB, and have configurable pinouts to suit a variety of needs.
