Wacom has announced what it calls a major innovation in capacitive touchscreen technology, the Reversing Ramped Field Capacitive or RRFC touch, which aims to deliver pinpoint precision and drift-free performance to touchscreen users.

Wacom will be demonstrating the new technology at the International Society for Information Display Exhibition (Booth #1129) from May 20 to 22, 2008 in Los Angeles, California.

The company said RRFC can be integrated into dual-input applications with Wacom’s EMR pen-input technology for Tablet PC OEMs or work by itself on other platforms that require only a finger touch interface.

Wacom said its RRFC touch technology overcomes many limitations that are inherent in surface capacitive touchscreens available today. “With advanced ASIC design and high resolution signal processing, RRFC touch is effectively immune to noise. It is also the only surface capacitive touch technology that can demonstrate excellent accuracy, stability and sensitivity even when working on battery power,” according to the company.
