Stantum Offering Demo, Evaluation & Development Board Based on Its Patented Resistive Multi-Touch Technology
Date:9/23/2008

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 (http://www.stantum.com), 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 http://www.stantum.com/spip.php?page=inquiry.

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.
