Presentation Abstract

Analog sensing is undergoing a digital transformation resulting in a new software-defined sensing technology. While analog sensing techniques have matured and plateaued, breakthrough SigmaDrive™ digital technology enables concurrent drive, sense, communications and power all form the same device pin without time multiplexing. For the first time, a system can now both stimulate and receive sensing data concurrently on the same pin. 100-1000X superior SNR enables new modes of operation previously not possible. Sensitivity provides presence detection or hover touchless interaction. SigmaDrive technology also provides a high performance, high quality streamed 3D view of the entire display surface feeding AI based processing to create new human machine interface opportunities.
