Atmel’s maXTouch powers sleek Xiaomi Mi3 smartphone

Xiaomi has selected Atmel’s maXTouch mXT540S controller to power the 5-inch touchscreen of its recently launched full high-definition (HD) Mi3 smartphone.


With Atmel’s mXT540S, Xiaomi’s Mi3 smartphone is capable of delivering superior touch performance with a very sensitive touch panel – offering the fastest report rate in the industry.

It should be noted that this is a particularly crucial feature for the capture of precise touches, including handwriting and signatures, with a fingernail. And with an industry-leading signal-to-noise ratio, the mXT540S offers noise suppression for environments with aftermarket noisy chargers, along with longer battery life.

“Xiaomi continues to bring modern designs to the market with an established brand and is known for launching some of the most innovative smart phones,” said Jon Kiachian, Atmel’s Vice President of Touch Marketing.


“The new Xiaomi Mi3 offers users a wide 5-inch smartphone on a 1080p HD touchscreen with extremely precise touches in the rapidly growing China and emerging markets. We look forward to collaborating with Xiaomi on future designs.”

Additional key Mi3 smartphone features  include:

  • Nvidia Tegra 4 processor or Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 (depending on market)
  • 5-inch IPS 1080p display
  • 2GB of LPDDR3 RAM
  • 13MP Sony Exmor RS CMOS camera
  • 2MP front facing
  • 3,050mAh battery
  • NFC
  • 8.1mm thick profile
