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 demonstr
