Synaptics describes itself as a human interface solution developer. The Company makes computer hardware such as display controllers, touch pads, capacitive touch controllers, fingerprint sensors and more. Synaptics sells its products to original equipment manufacturers for applications including smartphones, tablets, notebooks, automobiles, wearables and PC peripherals. Its products are based on capacitive sensing technology, as opposed to resistive touch screen technologies. Capacitive touch sensing works by sensing the electrical properties of the finger(s) touching the sensor; a resistive touchscreen senses direct pressure between two clear electrical layers that are separated by a small space, requiring an amount of force. Capacitive touch sensing solutions are solid state, making them more robust than resistive solutions.
