The maXStylus??? mXTS220 is designed to provide high-performance active stylus capability for maXTouch??? T Series touchscreen controller system. Microchip's s industry-leading maXTouch controllers can seamlessly support maXStylus without additional hardware components or design changes. These solutions include our recently launched maXTouch U Series devices. This integrated solution eliminates the need for an additional sensor layer, lowering overall system costs for the original equipment manufacturer (OEM) without compromising performance. The complete maXTouch and maXStylus solution has achieved Microsoft???s Windows® 10 certification. Microchip's s solutions can also be seamlessly integrated into Android or Windows 10 operating systems.
The mXTS220 uses capacitive sensing to detect an active maXTouch sensor presence and responds with its own signals to indicate location, pressure, button click timing, and other information. The maXTouch controller receives stylus information through the sensor while also detecting finger touches. After the maXTouch controller detects a stylus presence, special algorithms activate to process the stylus data to provide high linearity, accuracy, and resolution. Further processing provides excellent palm rejection, resulting in a smooth and comfortable stylus writing experience."
