SAN JOSE, Calif., Nov. 20, 2012 — (PRNewswire) — Atmel® Corporation (NASDAQ: ATML), a leader in microcontroller (MCU) and touch technology solutions, today announced the company's maXTouch® controllers have been designed into more than 30 Windows® 8 touch-enabled products ranging from tablets to Ultrabooks and notebook PCs.

As a co-engineering collaborator with Microsoft, Atmel has helped develop high-performance touchscreen specifications for Windows 8 including first-touch latency, finger separation and support for up to 10 simultaneous touches including edge gestures.

Almost all of the 30 plus Windows 8 projects powered by Atmel maXTouch controllers will hit the market by the end of this year. These touch-enabled devices are developed by Microsoft and other leading worldwide device manufacturers.

"We see increasing adoption of touch in Ultrabooks and notebooks thanks to Windows 8. With Atmel's recently launched high-performance, low-power mXT3432S touchscreen controllers for touchscreens up to 17.3", Atmel is further enabling adoption of touch into these new applications. We look forward to an ongoing collaboration with Microsoft as Windows 8 becomes an operating system of choice by many mobile users."
