(NASDAQ: SYNA),a leading developer of human interface solutions for mobile computing, communications and entertainment devices, today announced the world's first volume shipments of its ClearPad™ 3250 In-Cell solution. The ClearPad 3250 is a single-chip touch controller for display integrated In-Cell capacitive touchscreens.
