Partner News: TouchNetix, Norway, April 2023
As increasingly more Human Machine Interface (HMI) functionality is integrated within automotive touchscreen systems, reliable and safe operation of these touchscreens and smart touch surfaces become exceedingly important.
Today, TouchNetix announces that the aXiom family of user interface chips has achieved Automotive Safety Integrity Level B (ASIL B) certification according to the ISO 26262 functional safety standard. The aXiom products are currently in volume production for automotive applications and the range is rapidly gaining popularity amongst product designers. aXiom’s single chip solution allows designers to enable additional features, such as 3D sensing outside the touchscreen, force sensing, and triggering of low latency haptics feedback. Furthermore, aXiom chips deliver unique performance for gloved HMI operation and where moisture and wet conditions are prevalent.
Enhanced safety and quality assurance are key tenets of TouchNetix’s mission to provide ‘better user experiences’ and this accreditation boosts TouchNetix’s credentials as a trusted provider of high-quality user interface chips and touch technology.
Dr. Gaute Myklebust, Chief Technology Officer of TouchNetix commented, “With the tremendous new design activity experience with our aXiom user interface chips, I am delighted to announce to our customers that the products are certified according to the ISO 26262 functional safety standard. As aXiom is ASIL B ready certified, our customers can quickly, and with the highest confidence reach the functional safety requirements for their products.”
