The teardown of the Gear Live identifies that the Cypress TMA545 controller drives the touchscreen and that the Gear Live implements the Gen5 solution's water rejection feature and a wake-on-touch mode that helps prolong battery life. The Gear Live can be linked to Android smartphones to receive notifications and other content on an attractive, wearable and functional device.
'The wearable electronics market is growing exponentially, and TrueTouch is proving to be the best solution for these applications due to its water resistance and low power consumption, among other features,' said
With Cypress's unique and patented DualSense technology to execute both self-capacitance and mutual-capacitance measurements in the same device, the Gen5 family offers the industry's best waterproofing for seamless performance in real-world conditions, including the presence of rain, condensation, or sweat.
By combining this powerful architecture with an industry leading 32-bit ARM Cortex M-Core processor that is known for high-efficiency MIPS/mW, Gen5 controllers boast 120-Hz refresh rates and low power consumption. Gen5 controllers drive the touchscreen at 10V and at high frequency with narrow-band, single-pass scanning and advanced hardware DSP filtering.
Electronic noise from displays and after-market chargers can disrupt a touchscreen's ability to operate properly. The TrueTouch Gen5 family's ChargerArmor feature delivers unprecedented 40 volt peak-to-peak (Vpp) charger noise immunity measured from 1 to 500 kHz with an ultra-thin 0.5-mm cover lens and a finger-size up to 22 mm-the most stringent specifications used to measure any touchscreen controller.
No competing controllers deliver noise immunity over 15 Vpp under these conditions. The unique features of TrueTouch are backed by an industry-leading portfolio of more than 100 capacitive touch sensing patents.
Cypress's TrueTouch technology provides the industry's best noise immunity, highest SNR, best waterproofing, fastest refresh rates, lowest power consumption, and world's best accuracy and linearity. The flexible TrueTouch solution allows customers to rapidly develop leading-edge solutions without having to buy turnkey modules.
They have a choice of using touch sensors (glass or film) and LCDs from preferred partners, and can develop innovative mechanical designs ranging from flat to curved surfaces of varying thickness. The patented capacitive sensing technology of TrueTouch devices offers robust noise immunity that enables flawless operation in noisy RF and LCD environments.
