Intel Corp. (Nasdaq: INTC) will integrate the pen and mini-touch technology of Kfar Saba based N-trig into its Educational Tablet, a touch-enabled device for use in the classroom. The Android tablet will feature N-trig’s thin active pen and DuoSense controller chipset, specially designed to sit within the 10.1” screen system.
Cincinnati Country Day School director of technology Robert J. Baker said, “Writing, sketching, annotating, illustrating, highlighting and showing process are essential parts of the teaching and learning process. And when you want to take advantage of the power of a stylus, it is essential that you have an active digitizer solution like N-trig’s. Most people are not aware of the exponential difference in performance between active pens and a capacitive stylus, like you get with an iPad or other capacitive touch devices. Drawing or writing with what amounts to a finger on a stick is far too constraining to be useful.”
N-trig VP marketing Ronen Heldman said, "It is always extremely gratifying when an industry leader like Intel recognizes the value of our DuoSense technology. Collaborating with Intel has enabled us to better understand the education sector end user’s needs. With N-trig active pen, our OEM customers can differentiate their Education Tablet from others, while enhancing the 21st century student's experience.”
