Microsoft Picks Israeli N-Trig for New Surface Pro 3

Israeli startup N-Trig has made a huge leap forward to becoming a major player in the world of high tech, as Microsoft has chosen it to provide the digital pen technology for its new Surface Pro 3.

N-Trig will be replacing the company which previously provided such technology for Microsoft’s tablets, one of the world’s largest developers of digital pens and graphic technologies, the Japanese firm Wacom.

With its DuoSense integrated pen and touch technology, N-trig provides high performance controllers and a variety of active pen types for touch enabled smartphone, tablet and Ultrabook devices.

N-trig declares that its active pen solutions are designed to provide a natural pen-on-paper feel while enhancing the overall creativity and productivity of touch enabled devices. Advanced pressure sensitivity enables a natural pen writing appearance in digital input. The company says that, “the N-trig’s controllers bring a superior palm rejection feature that ensures no unintended touch events occur when using the active pen for writing on a screen, providing the write experience.”

Eyal Leibovitz, VP of R&D at the Israeli digital pen maker, explained to ZDnet that Microsoft chose his company because its pen lets OEMs integrate pen and touch together on the same digitizer. “It allowed Microsoft to eliminate a layer of sensor from its new tablet, making it lighter, ” he said.

The Surface Pro 3 is a quarter pound lighter than the 2.

The idea is to enable users to make use of their device in any situation, and that’s where the pen comes in, ” Leibovitz said. “Users can type on the keyboard if they want, or shed the keyboard and use the tablet as a note taker, writing with the included N-Trig pen.”

In other N-Trig news, just today the company announced a new optimized solution for the growing tablet segment. The new controllers, in conjunction with the company’s DuoSense Pen2, deliver an intuitive pen-on-paper handwriting and painting experience for tablets of all sizes.

“Because everybody knows how to use a pen, our technology allows tablet manufacturers to significantly increase the productivity and creativity offered by their devices, ” said Gary Baum, AVP product marketing, N-trig. “Furthermore, our single controller solution delivers both active pen and multi-touch capabilities to the tablet – enabling faster integration, and thinner and slimmer designs.”

Founded in 1999, N-trig is backed by premier investors. Headquartered in Kfar Saba. Israel, N-trig’s offices maintain sales and customer support services in North America, Japan, Taiwan, and China.
