N-trig today announced a collaboration with NVIDIA to provide tablets with unparalleled pen and multi-touch performance and functionality. The combination of N-trig's DuoSense pen and multi-touch user interface with NVIDIA DirectTouch architecture boosts performance and enhances the user experience.

DirectTouch improves touch responsiveness by offloading a portion of the touch panel processing to the CPU cores in the NVIDIA Tegra 3 processor, the world's only 4-PLUS-1 quad-core processor with a fifth battery saver core. The architecture also simplifies the implementation of touch-based hardware and user interfaces, requiring less power while delivering more scalable performance.



Michael Rayfield, General Manager of the Mobile business at NVIDIA, said, "We're delighted to take our collaboration with N-trig to a new level in improving the touchscreen experience. The combination of DirectTouch with N-trig's DuoSense user interface will enable device-makers to offer their customers unprecedented precision for active pen and multi-touch processing."

N-trig DuoSense patented technology provides a pen and multi-touch user interface in a single device enabling true productivity in a mobile computing environment. The combination of multi-touch input and an intuitive, easy-to-use pen creates a truly Hands-on experience for home, enterprise, and education. For example, in the education sector, DuoSense enables students to draw and sketch, take notes with handwriting recognition, and do homework directly on their e-textbooks resulting in a more versatile and creative way in which to interact with their computers.

"With this partnership, we bring advanced active pen and multi-touch capabilities to the tablet market, providing the user with the smoothest and most precise experience possible," said Amichai Ben-David, CEO of N-trig. "The additional processing power provided by Tegra 3 allows device manufacturers to offer enhanced pen and multi-touch performance without increasing cost or power consumption."

DuoSense supports all Windows, Android-based tablets and convertibles, and will be compatible with the Windows 8 operating system.
