Resistive Controller IC’s

PenMount resistive controller ICs are available for customer integration into their own systems. Controller ICs support both RS-232 and USB interfaces.

  • PenMount 6000: Both RS232 & USB interfaces
  • PenMount 9000: RS232 interface

Every controller IC comes with drivers and supports all 4-, 5-, and 8-wire resistive touch screens.

PenMount 6000 Controller Chipset (RoHS Compliant)

PenMount 6000 touch screen controllers offer the best performance among all touch screen controllers and is designed with PnP features to conform to new system trends.  The PenMount 6000 has been designed for those who desire an all-in-one solution with a 10-bit A/D converter built-in.

PenMount 9000 Controller Chipset (RoHS Compliant)

The PenMount 9000 is designed to exhibit excellent performance with RS-232 interfaces. The PenMount 9000 has been designed for those who desire an all-in-one solution with an A/D converter built-in. For larger screen area compensation, it is sometimes necessary to use an 8 or 5-wire touch panel instead of a 4-wire structure with these individual controllers. PenMount 9000 controllers work properly with 4, 8 and 5-wire touch panels in a way that is totally transparent to the user.
