Synaptics (News - Alert) Inc., a provider of human interface solutions for mobile computing, communications and entertainment devices, will be speaking for the first time at Interop (News - Alert).
Andrew Hsu, Synaptics technology strategist and one of the inventors of ClearPad touchscreen technology, will be among a select group of wireless and mobile technology experts participating on the "Advanced Technologies: What's Next for Wireless and Mobile?" panel at the Interop 2010 conference and exhibition in Las Vegas, April 29.
Hsu will discuss on the evolution of user interface technologies from a capacitive touch market leader's point of view. He is the technical contact for Synaptics' worldwide customers in the handheld space. He led the marketing efforts for ClearPad that resulted in the first production phone with a capacitive touchscreen, the LG Prada.
"In the past decade, the mobile phone has evolved into a computing platform for the masses and an intuitive user interface serves as a portal into the cloud," added Hsu. "We will explore the growing importance of usage models and wireless computing during the panel. Ultimately, an intuitive user interface leads to innovative software and drives segment adoption, which in turn fosters consumer demand for an even more sophisticated channel to access the cloud."
The panel will be moderated by Tim Scannell, editorial director for TechnologyGuide.com, TechTarget. Scannell discusses on technological advances in a broad range of markets like user interface, handheld, processor technology and storage. The panelists will discuss key wireless technologies and their impending impact.
Panelists joining Hsu include Ronny Haraldsvik, vice president of marketing, SpiderCloud Wireless, Inc. and Tom Medrek, senior vice president and general manager, multiservice access, Mindspeed Technologies (News - Alert).
OEMs and ODMs come to Synaptics with a wide range of requirements. Some know exactly what they want. Others have a general goal, more interactivity, a competitive advantage, and look to us to create the right solution that takes them there. And some want to leverage OneTouch solution and its family of configurable capacitive sensing chips that they can integrate easily into their device. The company engages with customers to the interface solutions they need to complete. Its customers benefit from wide-ranging technological expertise in all aspects of human interfaces, its industry-leading product portfolio, and end-to-end solution stack.
