An Israeli Tablet Sensor Technologies Developer has managed to create a digital positioning technology that enables device manufacturers to integrate advanced user input capabilities into a wide range of consumer devices. The team behind this project will now be part of Qualcomm’s Israel’s R&D unit.
The technology developed by the Israeli allows for the digital transmission of ultrasonic waves, enabling precise tracking by a receiver to enable multiple applications. The EPOS technology applications were explained by Oded Turbahn, chief executive officer, EPOS. According to his statements:
“Ultrasound technology provides device manufacturers a low-cost approach for integrating pen and stylus-based user interfaces into their products while gaining the benefit of a slew of new capabilities,” “Relative to other pen and stylus input solutions, the additional bill of material cost for the device is minimal as the technology does not require changes to the device’s screen and is independent of screen size. The EPOS team is excited about joining Qualcomm in working to further the potential of digital ultrasound.”
