Atmel maxTouch Technology Used in the Samsung Galaxy Tab

It’s been announced that ’s chosen Atmel’s maxTouch technology for use in their Galaxy Tab – something they also did with their Galaxy S phones. also decided to go with maxTouch for some of their more recent, beefier handsets (with the EVO 4G and Droid Incredible being confirmed subjects). For those that don’t know, Atmel’s panels register virtually unlimited amounts of touches for smooth multi-touch performance and makes overall use of a device noticeably smoother.

At least for the Galaxy Tab, it contradicts what I wrote about the device’s touchscreen responsiveness in my hands-on impressions, but it could just be due to the fact that the device was running unfinished software. Here’s a full list of what makes these panels as good as they are.

Unlimited touches
Low power consumption
Fast response — completely redraws screen every 4/1000 of a second (4ms) to eliminate recalibration issues
Excellent signal-to-noise ratio for superior precision — 3x better than competitive products
Superior performance for first-touch response — 3x better than competitive products
Unambiguous, unlimited touch support
Responsive user interface: > 250 Hz report rate for a single touch
Extremely low current consumption: < 1.8 mW in “touch-ready” state
Two touch adjacency of less than 10 mm on a 4.3? touchscreen
Small footprint with few external components
Supports stylus, fingernails, and gloves
Grip and face suppression functionality: avoids false touches
Size and angle of touch supported
Screen sizes up to 10.2? are supported by a single chip
Proximity channel support

Atmel says to expect maxTouch technology in other tablets in the coming months – which we assume will come from the likes of HTC, Motorola, and others.
