Cirque has expanded to offer specialized input solutions in markets like security, point of sale, industrial, automotive and more. 

GlidePoint TM035035 Trackpad

GlidePoint TM035035 Trackpad

The GlidePoint TM035035 is a unique round trackpad designed by Cirque for use in game controllers, remote controllers and other devices requiring a unique and versatile interface. This module has a 35mm diameter ideal for compact devices.  

The TM035035 circle shape can replace or supplement a traditional analog stick or directional pad. Because its a true trackpad (not simply a gesture pad), the TM035035 is completely customizable and can dynamically support different input modes. Set it as a d-pad replacement for quick scrolling through menus, or a precision tracking device for sniper mode. 

The TM035035 uses a proven Cirque's capacitive touch controller system-on-chip for an easy to implement solution with extremely low power consumption, ideal for battery powered devices.

Developer Support

Sample Code

An Arduino-based sample project is available for capturing touch data from the TM035035 module. This project utilizes the Teensy 3.2 Arduino development board. An adaptor module is available from Cirque that includes the Teensy 3.2 and allows for easy connection to the TM035035.


Additional documentation and examples  will be coming soon. In the meantime, please contact Cirque for any technical inquires.
