Cypress Semiconductor Corp. (NYSE:CY) today announced a free online seminar that looks at touchscreen technology and its various applications and usage models. The 60-minute webinar entitled "Designing Compelling User Interfaces with Multi-Touch All-Point Touchscreen Technology" will be presented in conjunction with Electronic Engineering Times on Wednesday, June 25 at 9:00 a.m. PDT.

Touchscreens have become the user interface of choice for many applications, enabling users to directly interact with the varied content within a display. From single-touch and multi-touch gestures to multi-touch all-point--simultaneously interpreting any number of independent points on the screen--users can now manipulate many more functions easily and intuitively. The webinar will start by explaining what touchscreen technology is and how it works. The presenters will then review different usage models designers should consider for incorporating touchscreen functionality in system designs.

"This webinar will give engineers an understanding of the latest developments in touchscreen technology, empowering them to decide what level of interface functionality best fits their system," said Babak Hedayati, senior vice president of Marketing and Applications for Cypress. "Cypress is uniquely positioned to help designers leverage this hot technology based on our leadership across multiple forms of touch-sensing interfaces."
