The flexible device, which is less than 0.5 mm thick, claims to turn any area into a touch surface. Combining CSR’s low-power wireless technology with the latest in printable, flexible electronics and touch screen sensing, the device can be used to extend the touch interface of tablets and smartphones. Light weight and flexible, the device can be integrated into a protective cover or used to create large touch zones on a desktop. With minimal weight and bulk, a full keyboard experience can be added to a tablet without taking up valuable screen area. Thin enough to slip behind the pages of a notebook, the device can be used to pick up handwriting and sketches from the nib of a modified pen. The paper-thin surface is wirelessly connected using the CSR1010 chip, part of the CSR μEnergy range, which is optimized solely for Bluetooth Smart. The Bluetooth Smart technology allows the device to connect to the latest iOS7 mobile devices and Windows 8 PCs using a fraction of the power of standard Bluetooth, enabling market-leading battery life and maintaining the smallest form factor. Touch latency is also minimized to less than 12ms, ensuring near instant visual feedback and enabling a seamless user experience. CSR partnered with Atmel and Conductive Inkjet Technology (CIT) to develop the ultra-thin wireless touch surface. The device uses Atmel’s touch silicon to sense multiple contact points on a surface, and can offer a full touch surface or power optimised key detection. The flexible membrane is enabled by CIT printed conductors produced on a reel-to-reel printing process. It can be printed to fit a range of tablet shapes and sizes. CSR www.csr.com
