Synaptics Resonate™ Surface Audio and Triple Combo 2™ Wireless SoC Win Embedded Computing Design Magazine’s “Best in Show” Awards at Embedded World 2023

SAN JOSE, Calif., March 29, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Synaptics® Incorporated (Nasdaq: SYNA) today announced that two of its newest solutions — Synaptics Resonate™ surface audio and haptics for displays and its Triple Combo 2™ system-on-chip (SoC) enabling interoperable wireless connectivity (SYN4382) — were both recognized with Embedded Computing Design magazine’s “Best in Show” awards at the recent Embedded World 2023 conference.

Winning in the Sensors category, Resonate is a game-changing solution that directly combines audio and haptics capabilities into any display surface, including those for smart appliances, smartphones, TVs, portable media players, toys and gaming platforms, automobiles, monitors, tablets, and laptops. It uses piezoelectric transducers mounted on the rear of the display to generate and project audio directly outward from the glass surface for a more immersive, line-of-sight viewing experience, while enabling dustproof and waterproof designs. Resonate is uniquely positioned to solve the power, cost, space, and reliability problems associated with the development of rugged, reliable, interactive systems — while still providing high-quality audio, haptics, and touch-sensing.

Winning in the Connectivity category, Synaptics’ new SYN4382 Triple Combo 2 SoC is the second generation of Synaptics’ award-winning platform that integrates Wi-Fi 6/6E, Bluetooth 5.3 (BT 5.3), and IEEE 802.15.4 radios with built-in support for the Thread protocol and the Matter application layer. The new version features a doubling in Wi-Fi throughput to 1200 Mbps, real-time simultaneous dual-band (RSDB) operation (versus time-multiplexed implementations) in the 2.4-GHz and 5– or 6/6E-GHz bands for ultra-reliable, robust connectivity, and full LE Audio capabilities.
