With the ever-expanding market for personal electronics, the need for human-interface technology has never been greater, and this need will only grow as technology improves and more markets open up. The current leader in touch and authentication technology, Synaptics is perfectly poised to outperform the competition in the high-growth landscape of human-interface technology.
As the name suggests, Synaptics, a portmanteau of synapse and electronics, was originally founded by scientists interested in utilizing neural networks in technological devices. Pivoting into human-interface devices with the development of the first touch-pad in 1992, Synaptics now encompasses over 1,600 patents, 1,700 employees, and a $1.7 billion market-value.
“Human-interface solutions have a lot of future. Touch and fingerprint is just the beginning of it. Think of audio, eyes, and the many other ways you can interact with all the machines around us.”
Sr. Director of Regional Marketing
“At Synaptics, we have so many smart people who are motivated, talented, and want to win for the right reasons. If you look at the types of products that we’ve made in the past and how we’ve been swinging above our weight for a long time, it’s clear we have a really big chance to continue making a huge impact on the world.”
