July 2012 UPDATE: DuoSense now available as a single chip-solution for screen sizes up to 15.6-inches! Read here for details, original story continues below:
However, it was only going to be a matter of time before the world of “simultaneous pen and multi-touch input” became an advanced reality yet again, and although that world has already existed for the past couple of years, today, N-Trig has announced its new fourth generation running on a single chip.
Set to run on “a variety of operating systems” including “all Windows platforms and Android”, the updated platform delivers a new DuoSense solution, an active pen with new features, and a UI that delivers simultaneous pen and multi-touch input.
The new technology enables “thinner, lighter and smaller” devices, even ones using "One Glass” technology according to N-Trig officials, while delivering an unprecedented level of precision, accurate and “natural feel”, promising comparability to “writing on paper”.
Naturally, there’s full Windows 8 compatibility, with 10-finger input multi-touch for a very touching experience - whether on tablets, convertibles or any other advanced touch-enabled device.
The single chip supports screen sizes up to 11.6-inches, and if OEMs use more than one DuoSense chip, screen sizes up to 17-inches can be supported.
All-in-all, if you want the best and most advanced stylus writing and digital inking capabilities at high resolution, including interchangeable tips and more, with full finger capability… N-Trig hopes to trigger your desire – and that of OEMs – for its hyper advanced technologies.
Who knows, we might even see it in one of Apple’s devices some day…
