Kever Benjamin's Touch-Screen Digitizer Industry
You would NOT believe it, but Kever Benjamin City is becoming something of a miniature Silicon Valley. I for one find it difficult to believe it, because I dont see any geniuses walking around. I used to exercise walking machine along walking machine with Gaby Ashkenazi the Ramatcal, our Chief of Staff, and what most impressed me were his hairy legs. We also have the Sandisk HQ in the Hi Tech Industrial Area, and Amdocs, so what? When I ask my little daughter how was school, she answers that the arsim burned it down today. Ars is the local slang for asshole. According to her, the school is peopled by moophrayim, very perturbed fellows, the teachers more than the students. Does Silicon Valley look like this?
Anyway, this N-trig thingie’s newest digitizer chipset is called A-trig and D-trig - to be integrated in OEMs' computer systems. N-trig’s DuoSense technology combines pen and zero-pressure touch for mobile computers into a single device. The digitizers are a thinner and more integrated solution. Its zero-pressure touch is based on capacitive touch instead of traditional resistive touch. N-trig’s technology supports any type of LCD and can be implemented in a broad range of products from small tablet PCs to large format LCDs. N-trig has sold thousands of its units to Dell Computers. In fact, President George W. Bush presented his 2009 budget to Congress on a Dell computer with N-Trig's product installed in it. Maybe it is a good investment. Really, I dont know. I live in the neighborhood and never saw one.
