Stantum Offering Demo, Evaluation & Development Board Based on Its Patented Resistive Multi-Touch Technology

First Such Board on the Market, Stantum's SMK Series Will Let Vendors Cost-Effectively Develop Their Own Resistive Multi-Touch Applications

SAN DIEGO, Sept. 23 /PRNewswire/ -- Stantum Technologies (, a pioneer developer of multi-touch sensing technology, today introduced a demo, evaluation and development board based on its patented PMatrix(TM) resistive multi-touch technology, which lets users simultaneously move an unlimited number of fingers, nails or utensils (such as styli) on a screen.

The first such board on the market, the new SMK series enables vendors and OEMs to evaluate the performance of Stantum's technology and begin developing their own resistive multi-touch applications, thanks to a user-friendly interface compatible with Windows, MAC OS and Linux.

"Stantum is demonstrating that -- contrary to widespread misbelief -- multi-touch is possible with a cost-effective resistive touch-panel platform," said Chris Crotty, director of small and medium displays research at DisplaySearch, a leading provider of information, consulting and conferences on the display supply chain and display-related industries. "With this groundbreaking announcement, Stantum is combining the best of both worlds by offering the features of projected capacitive multi-touch with the lower cost and widespread availability of resistive touch technology."

Added Guillaume Largillier, Stantum's co-founder and CEO: "Our SMK series is the smart multi-touch development kit that the consumer electronics and other industries have long anticipated. It gives manufacturers developing their hardware and applications a great opportunity to assess the huge advantages that multi-touch capability can offer, especially when it uses resistive technology."

SMK boards come with either a 2.5- or 3.5-inch touch-panel sensor; a multi-touch controller; Stantum's Lemurofon software, for demonstrating simple multi-touch applications like games, picture zoom in and out, and keyboard; and a USB port.

SMK multi-touch evaluation and development boards are scheduled to be available Oct. 1. Inquiries can be made via Stantum's web site at

About Stantum Technologies

Stantum Technologies (formerly JazzMutant) has pioneered multi-touch technologies since its founding in 2002 by Guillaume Largillier and Pascal Joguet. The following year, it developed the world's first multi-touch screen that could track an unlimited number of fingers at once and in 2005 launched Lemur, the first multi-touch product available on the market. Today, Stantum's technology portfolio and product offerings cover every aspect of multi-touch interaction, including sensor design, multi-touch controllers, intellectual property cores, software integration, and application programming interfaces. Stantum is headquartered in Bordeaux, France, with the U.S. accounting for about one-third of its worldwide sales.
