Samsung Electronics showcased a single chip that integrates a capacitive touch screen control function in a mobile display driver IC (DDI). This single chip Touch Embedded DDI solution supports industry demand for simplified system designs, which will enable the use of slimmer form factors in mobile application designs. Initial targeted applications for the Touch Embedded DDI include mobile phones, portable multimedia players (PMP) and MP3 players.

Compared to resistive touch screen control technology, capacitive touch screen control technology allows more advanced features such as soft-touch and multi-touch functions and provides significant improvement in important performance parameters such as optical transmittance and durability.
