Cypress TrueTouch adds “hover” functions to touchscreens

TrueTouch by Cypress adds "Hover" to touchscreen devices

No, your touchscreen won’t let you rip down the street like Michael J. Fox did in Back to the Future on a hoverboard. This is taking what was once an annoying issue that plagued SurePress touchscreen technology from Research in Motion, later to be addressed with the BlackBerry Storm, and turning in to a full-fledged feature. When you have a touchscreen, it becomes an all-or-nothing affair. Either you touch it or you don’t – no longer is that the case.

Cypress Semiconductor has just announced what it calls the TrueTouch feature for touchscreen devices. In addition to the usual “tap” that you can give a touchscreen, you can hover your finger over an area and have the screen react accordingly.
