Synaptics to show ClearPad 2200 controller at MWC

Human interface hardware maker Synaptics has just details its ClearPad 2200 multi-touch controller meant for smartphones with touchscreens sized at under four inches. The capacitive panel will be the most responsive touchscreen in the industry, its maker promises, thanks to low latency and a high signal-to-noise ratio. It will achieve this by being the first to use Synaptics' SignalClarity tech.

The company's research shows that more than 50 percent of the projected one billion smartphones in 2014 will use capacitive touchscreens. When designing the ClearPad 2200, Synaptics took into account the interference and noise from nearby power supplies and displays.

Synaptics will offer demonstrations of the latest controller at MWC in Spain next week.
