We provide a turnkey IC solution and electronic systems for projected capacitive touch displays
Extensive family of touch products
Based on 10 years’ experience in charge sensing technology for X-RAY detectors, Advanced Silicon has developed a complete family of capacitive controllers dedicated for touch screen applications. The family is based on the CoolTouch™, CoolPEN™, and AirTouch™ processing units. They feature a high flexibility making the family suitable for a wide range of applications such as Tablets, All-In-One PCs and Interactive Display Boards.
The CoolTouch™ System (CTS) family represents the first and second generation of our touch processing chipsets. The 1st generation includes single chip controller solution (CTS30x) with very slim Control Boards dedicated for Tablets and two-in-one PCs. It also includes multi-chip solutions (CTS10x) addressing various touch panel resolutions, a basic requirement for All-In-One PC applications. The 1st generation features limited touch points (up to 10) and a very basic palm rejection. The 2nd generation is mainly focusing on multi-chip solutions (CTS12x) for large size Interactive Display Boards (IDBs) ranging between 27” and 84” with powerful Control Boards. It features advanced touch and complex 2D objects detection in the sensor plane.

The CoolPEN™ System (CPS) family represents the third generation of our projected capacitive touch processing units. While maintaining a backward compatibility with the previous generations, the 3rd generation focuses on embedding simultaneously the detection and tracking of multi-touch points and active pens. With our proprietary active pen system, we provide a complete chip set solution. On the pen side, our pen IC offers the flexibility of interfacing our proprietary capacitive tip force sensor or any suitable resistive gauge sensor with our pen controller IC enabling the design and optimization of our compact active pen (SMP10x). On the controller board side, the system offers single chip solutions (CPS33x) with very slim Controller Boards dedicated for Tablets and two-in-one PCs. It also offers multi-chip solutions (CPS13x) suitable for All-In-One PCs as well as Interactive Display Boards (IDBs) ranging between 27” and 84” with powerful Control Boards. It features advanced touch, complex blob detections and active pens detection.

The AirTouch™ System (ATS) family represents the 4th generation of our processing units. It focuses on embedding simultaneously the detection and tracking of multi-touch points and active/passive objects in the 2D and 3D planes. The system is under development and will feature backward compatibility with CoolTouch™ and CoolPEN™ with the fusion of the 2D plane with the additional 3D dimension at 30 frames per second. It offers multi-chip solution (ATS14x) with camera modules and powerful Control Boards suitable for mid-to-large size Interactive Display Boards (IDBs) ranging between 27” and 84”.
