TM5960 Touchpad

Our TM5960 is designed for use as an embedded SPI® input device. Its dimensions are larger than the industry standard for the notebook computer pointing devices, making it ideal for integration into a wide variety of products. We also offer custom overlays to match your design requirements.

Using our patented GlidePoint® technology, the TM5960 is immune to moisture, allowing it to function properly even with water droplets present on the touchpad’s sensing surface. The TM5960 offers “idle mode” and “sleep mode” to improve power efficiency for touch applications.

  • Lareger than notebook computer industry-standard
  • SPI (10-pin FFC connector) compatibility
  • Low power consumption
  • Easy product integration due to thin, lightweight design
  • No maintenance required – Sealable design is immune to moisture, dust and abuse
  • Superior navigation and high responsiveness

Using our patented GlidePoint® technology, the touchpad is immune to moisture, allowing it to function properly even with water droplets present on the sensor surface.

Power efficiency of any application is improved with an "idle mode," where the touchpad’s current draw is reduced when a finger is not touching its surface.

For custom functionality at the product design stage, we offer software that allows OEMs to enable, disable or personalize advanced settings and/or reprogram the touch sensitive area.
