Synaptics Inc. has announced its touch and display driver integration (TDDI) technology was selected for Huawei Mate 9 smartphones. Synaptics TouchView™ TDDI merges touchscreen controller and display driver IC (DDIC) technologies into a single chip—a technology pioneered by Synaptics.
The Synaptics TD4322 TDDI featured on the Huawei Mate 9 supports its 5.89-inch screen and full HD resolution. It also includes integrated RAM, which provides lower power and enables an extended feature-set—ideal for mainstream LTPS-based smartphones.
Synaptics TouchView™ enables faster time-to-market, lower overall system cost, a simplified supply chain, thinner devices, brighter displays and borderless designs. Patented touch features include support for up to ten fingers, stylus, face detection, low-power wake gestures, gloved touch and moisture performance. Proprietary display driver features include a billion color displays, sunlight readability enhancement, local area auto-contrast adjustment and Image Studio, Synaptics’ unique software development kit that empowers OEMs/LCMs with tools for custom fine tuning.
