Cima NanoTech, a smart nanomaterials company specializing in high performance transparent conductors, showcased an ultra responsive, non-ITO film-based 42” large format touch screen at SID Display Week. Combining Cima NanoTech’s highly conductive SANTE FS200 touch films and specially engineered multi-chip touch controllers from Silicon integrated Systems Corp. (SiS), the 42” touch screen demo boasts an exceptional scan rate of 150hz for 10-point multi-touch, or a response time of 6.5 milliseconds, allowing end-users to enjoy the instantaneous touch response of smartphones and tablets on large and ultra large format touch displays.
The performance of today’s touch-enabled software is often constrained by the hardware technology accompanying it – and slow response time is one of the main issues. This compromise is even more evident in large format touch screens that are 30-inch and above – a high growth market for self-service retail kiosks, interactive flat panel displays, touch-enabled tabletops and many others. Engineered to possess high conductivity and mechanical flexibility, Cima NanoTech’s SANTE FS200 touch films allow touch panel manufacturers to keep pace with software developers, thus transforming the overall large format touch experience into one that is more enjoyable, interactive and engaging.
“We are excited to be working with SiS to develop best in class, ultra responsive, large format touch screens.” said Jon Brodd, CEO, Cima NanoTech. “We are confident that by leveraging the expertise of both companies, we can fully capitalize on the strong market potential of large format touch screens.”
By working directly with IC chip companies, Cima NanoTech is able to provide touch solutions that are easily integrated into their customer’s existing processes,
shortening the time-to-market of products. In addition, SANTE FS200 touch films are compatible with standard etching and lamination methods, enabling supply chain freedom for touch panel manufacturers.
“The superior multi-point accuracy, high response rate and high sensitivity of the 42” touch demo truly makes it a breakthrough product in the industry, and we look forward to see the innovative applications our customers will use this product for,” commented Eddie Chang, Vice President, Sales, SiS.
