Corning Inc. and Atmel® Corp. recently announced a collaboration to develop ultra-thin capacitive touchscreens with superior multi-touch performance for next-generation applications. This collaboration combines Atmel XSense® flexible touch sensors with 0.4 mm damage-resistant Corning® Gorilla® Glass. Together, they reportedly deliver outstanding capacitive touch performance through thinner flat or curved cover glass.

In addition, the circuit design of XSense can enable narrower device borders, allowing for a more optimal viewing area. The combination reportedly allows industrial designers to create phones, tablets, notebooks, and other multi-touch devices with sleeker, lighter, and more contemporary touch interfaces without sacrificing reliability or performance.

“Our collaboration with Atmel accelerates the move toward thinner cover glass and enables the use of curved touchscreens for our customers designing next-generation applications,” said James Nagel, division vice president of Program Development for Corning Gorilla Glass, Corning Specialty Materials. “The toughness of 0.4 mm and curved Gorilla Glass, coupled with the remarkable touch performance and flexibility of XSense, enables the most exciting consumer experience in the market today.”
