TM5960 Touchpad

Our TM5960 is designed for use as an embedded SPI® input device. Its dimensions are larger than the industry standard for the notebook computer pointing devices, making it ideal for integration into a wide variety of products. We also offer custom overlays to match your design requirements.

The TM5960 offers “idle mode” and “sleep mode” to improve power efficiency for touch applications.


  • Wireless products
  • Keypads
  • Mouse alternatives
  • Industrial control panels
  • Medical instruments
  • PC peripherals
  • Point-of-sale devices


  • Lareger than notebook computer industry-standard
  • SPI (10-pin FFC connector) compatibility
  • Low power consumption
  • Easy product integration due to thin, lightweight design
  • No maintenance required – Sealable design is immune to dust and abuse
  • Superior navigation and high responsiveness

Power efficiency of any application is improved with an "idle mode," where the touchpad’s current draw is reduced when a finger is not touching its surface.

For custom functionality at the product design stage, we offer software that allows OEMs to enable, disable or personalize advanced settings and/or reprogram the touch sensitive area.
