Atmel Launches Next Generation maXStylus mXTS220 Active Pen Platform Delivering Extremely Precise Handwriting with an Architecture Built for the Future of Stylus

maXStylus mXTS220 Delivers Significantly Improved Active Pen Performance with Longer Battery Life, Higher Noise Immunity and Optimized Design for Lower System Cost for Mobile Devices

SAN JOSE, Calif., Jan. 7, 2015 — (PRNewswire) — Atmel® Corporation (NASDAQ: ATML), a global leader in microcontroller and touch technology solutions, today announced the company is sampling its next generation maXStylus mXTS220 to multiple global customers. OEMs have been looking to expand the user adoption of active stylus solutions on mobile devices by providing precise handwriting, lower system and stylus cost, and easy-to-use styli that do not require frequent battery changes.

The next-generation maXStylus mXTS220 capacitive active stylus controller elevates the user experience with superior responsiveness after every stroke which is a key requirement for a 'pen-to-paper' writing experience. Higher precision writing and pressure sensing, with palms resting on the touchscreen, enable an artistic writing experience with fluid strokes. The maXStylus mXTS220 solution utilizes the capacitive touchscreen controller and does not require an additional sensor layer, such as EMR (electro-magnetic resonance) technology, for optimized solution cost.

Atmel's maXStylus mXTS220 bidirectional architecture is the best positioned in the industry to allow OEMs to build next-generation styli with flexibility to interoperate with multiple digitizers. The unique two-way architecture enables the stylus to detect various noise sources so they can be avoided – a differentiation of maXStylus that no other solution on the market offers today. Enhanced noise immunity over existing capacitive solutions allows flawless pen strokes without any line breaks or missing strokes while further extending battery life.

"The ability to create content on your mobile devices, including smartphones, tablets, notebooks and Ultrabooks, is quickly becoming a key differentiating factor in OEM designs," said Shar Narasimhan, Sr. Product Manager of Touch Marketing, Atmel Corporation. "As a leader in the touch market, we are excited to bring one of the most precise active stylus solutions to the market, enabling a pen-to-paper experience on a touchscreen while meeting future OEM requirements with the flexibility of an interoperable platform."
