Stantum’s Patented Multi-Touch Technology Now Supports Google’s Android OS

LOS ANGELES, May 18, 2011 – Stantum (www.stantum.com), a pioneer developer of multi-touch technology, announced today that its patented Interpolated Voltage Sensing Matrix (IVSM) technology now supports Google's Android operating system. IVSM technology’s native compatibility with Android's multi-touch framework is being showcased on a demonstration kit in Stantum’s booth (#1354) at the SID Display Week exhibition in Los Angeles.

“We believe that Android could well become the leading operating system for tablets aimed at the education and office markets, if it’s combined with the right input technology,” said Stantum CSO Guillaume Largillier. “Stantum's IVSM technology lets OEMs design such tablets, with displays that enable true multi-touch (with as many as 10 simultaneous touches) and handwriting input.”

Resulting from Stantum's longtime involvement in the Linux community, IVSM support of the Android OS extends to Android 2.1 and higher, with Linux kernel 2.6.30 and higher on x86 and ARM platforms. The technology is also compatible with the Windows OS and features Windows 7 certification.

Stantum IVSM touch modules are available to OEMs through the company’s Qualified Manufacturing Partners Network, comprising tier-one touch-screen manufacturers with high-volume production capabilities. More information is available at info@stantum.com.
