SAN JOSE, Calif., January 24, 2013 – Cypress Semiconductor Corp. (Nasdaq: CY), the market leader in touch-sensing, today announced that Fujitsu Limited has selected the TrueTouch® Gen4 touchscreen solution from Cypress to implement the touchscreen in the new Arrows V F-04E smartphone available from NTT DOCOMO. The new Fujitsu phone, which uses the Android operating systems and operates on the 4G LTE network, leverages the Gen4 solution’s leading signal-to-noise ratio (SNR) to deliver highly responsive and accurate multitouch performance in any operating environment. Gen4 also provides industry-leading waterproofing capability, enabling accurate touch input and finger tracking in the presence of moisture from rain, condensation, or sweat.
