ROUND ROCK, Texas, May 25 /PRNewswire/ -- TouchSystems Corporation and eTurboTouch Technology announced Monday, May 21, 2001, their strategic alliance and debuted patented touchscreen technologies, Turbo Pen and Turbo T6, at a press conference held at the Westin in Taipei, Taiwan. This event celebrated the partnership announced by TouchSystems April 13, 2001. Turbo Pen is a new, pen-based touch device that enables the panel to distinguish between it and the hand, overcoming identification problems common to resistive touchscreen technology. This eliminates interference caused by a knuckle or palms making contact with the panel. Turbo T6 is a 5-wire analog resistive touchscreen, enhanced with an EMI (Electromagnetic Interference) shield. T6 nearly doubles the lifespan of current 5-wire touchscreen technology.

Global Partnership

eTurboTouch Technology, an emerging industry leader in the manufacture of touchpanel and image capture technology, has granted TouchSystems exclusive distributorship rights throughout North and South America. TouchSystems, with over 85 years combined touchscreen experience, will leverage its expertise and extensive sales and distributorship channels, in partnership with eTurboTouch's manufacturing and new product development capacities. The partnership is designed to provide cutting-edge, cost-effective, touchpanel solutions and position the company to exploit unmet demand in the touchscreen market.

Announcement of New Patented Products

Turbo Pen is a special pen-based touch device, designed for use with high transmission rate (at least 90%) touch panels. Turbo Pen features an intelligent controller which distinguishes between pen and finger input, enabling palm rejection; thereby, eliminating interference caused by the knuckles or hand resting on the touch panel. Turbo Pen is the ideal choice when direct finger touch is unavailable. Turbo Pen provides improved accuracy and is targeted for CAD, handheld PC, Industrial, identification signature, e-book, GPS, webpad, medical, and IA products. Mass production will begin in August 2001.

Turbo T6, a 5-wire analog resistive touchscreen, enhanced with an EMI shield, is designed for extreme and high-use applications. T6 features a longer lifespan with superior durability, resolution, accuracy, and positioning speed. The added benefits of EMI, an electro-magnetic shield, provide improved functioning and reliability. T6 is targeted for a wide range of industries: POS, Kiosk, mobile warehousing, GPS, web phones, retail, ATMs, and industrial control. T6 is manufactured in sizes from 2`` to 21'' and can be custom designed to fit most any application.
