Simi Valley, CA, September 21, 2011 --(PR.com
)-- Sprintek Corp., a leading supplier of high-quality microcontroller based semiconductor products for computers peripherals, medical device and industrial applications, today announced new family of FlexPoint™ Pointing Stick solution with mouse encoder module SK8702/SK8703. The SK8702/SK8703 module is built with IC SK7102.
The SK8702/SK8703 FlexPoint™ pointing stick module is a cost-effective, space-saving PS/2 mouse device deploying a Sprintek SK7102 pointing stick controller. Typically, consuming 370uA in idle state, the SK8702/SK8703 is ideal for battery-operated systems such as Tablet PC, laptop, netbook and wireless keyboard. Deploying CellMute™ technology and patent-pending signal conditioning circuit to filter the wireless EMI noise from cellular phones and wireless networks, the SK8702/SK8703 modules can work quietly in wireless environment. The SK8702/SK8703 FlexPoint™ module partially implements the Lenovo TrackPoint® extended command protocol and can work with Lenovo TrackPoint® device drivers directly.
Besides the typical embedded mouse applications in tabletPC/laptop/netbook, the solution can be also used as button mouse/joystick mouse for instruments and industrial control with smooth motion movement.
SK8702/SK8703 Module Key Features:
-- Low cost and space saving 3 Axis mouse solution
-- Advanced motion control algorithm in XY axis
-- Z-Tap algorithm to simulate left button click, double click and drag in Z axis
-- CellMute™ technology filters the wireless EMI noise from cellular phones and wireless networks
-- Works with standard Windows® mouse drivers
-- Works with Lenovo TrackPoint® drivers
-- Low power consumption. 370uA (idle), 2.1 mA (operation)
-- 3.20V to 5.25V operating voltage
-- Temperature range: -40°C to +85°C
SK8703 is a low profile version of SK8702, designed for ultra low profile keyboards.
