On Just to Clarify, we always pride ourselves on being on top of the news, and nothing is more on top of the news today than talking about the iPad. Released yesterday by Apple, the iPad is a larger version of the iPod Touch. It’s a new generation media consumption device, and its interface, just like that of the iPhone, is entirely via touchscreen. On the podcast today, we wanted to look at exactly how this touchscreen technology works.
Joining us today are two executives from Cypress Semiconductors in India – Balaji Thirumalai, senior director of strategic marketing, and Balasubramanian Lakshminarayanan, senior product marketing manager. In 2008, Cypress became the first company to offer multi-touch, all-point functionality, and its TrueTouch is the industry’s most flexible touch architecture. It has a variety of touch offerings, and offers a touchscreen driver for Android Phones.
