The industry leaders in touch technology innovation.

History

Cirque Corporation is the inventor and original developer of capacitive (no-pressure) touchpads. Founded in 1991, Cirque was named for the expansive snow cirques of Utah’s Wasatch mountain range. Since that time, our original GlidePoint® technology has provided the core of each new development of touch-input solutions and is answering the expanding computer market’s need for functional, durable and comfortable capacitive input devices. Dedicated to research, development and production of standard and custom digital touch-input solutions, we have been the industry’s leading global developer for nearly two decades.

During our crucial first stages of business development, GlidePoint technology was licensed to Alps Electric Co., Ltd. (Japan). In 2003, Cirque became a wholly owned subsidiary of Alps and is today considered the center of technology development for capacitive touch solutions. Cirque maintains independent development, production, sales and distribution facilities.

GlidePoint-based touchpads and their variations serve as superior alternatives to computer mice, trackballs, stick-pointers, joysticks, digital pens, tactile buttons, keys and scanners. Solid assembly (no moving mechanical parts) makes GlidePoint extremely reliable, while touch-input makes operation easy in any environment. Our field-proven technologies add simplicity, functionality and value to a broad range of input devices, including handheld controllers, cell phones, laptop computers, desktop touchpads, industrial controls, kiosks and more. We provide the most durable, reliable and comfortable input devices available.

To date, our efforts to bridge the gap between humans and digital information have resulted in significant growth and recognition. Through hard work and innovative thinking, a long list of media wins and awards fills our company history. Today we continue this successful trend together with Alps, refining existing products and introducing Cirque touch technology into countless new applications to improve both form and function.
