LUND, Sweden, June 18, 2014 /PRNewswire/ --

FlatFrog Laboratories AB, a leading provider of multi-touch systems, announced today availability of industry leading palm rejection support for large touch solutions and continued growth of its patent portfolio. 

Palm rejection integrated with FlatFrog Touch 

A well-known problem when using touch screens is registration of unintended touches from users' palms when placed on larger touch surfaces like touch tables and tablets. This causes false touches leading to poor user experience when typing, navigating or drawing on the screen. In order to solve this problem, OEMs have to use very expensive active digitizer and active stylus technology. FlatFrog can now deliver the same performance to these OEMs without the need for additional active digitizer layers. This means that users can have excellent touch performance using either their fingers or passive stylus while resting their palms on the touch screen.
