The GlidePoint TM040040 is a unique trackpad originally designed by Cirque for use in controllers for PC and console gaming. The TM040040 replaces the traditional analog stick and provides a high precision input experience for gaming. The sensor is designed to operate in Cirque’s Integrated Touch mode. The Cirque analog front end (AFE) is on the trackpad and the firmware is embedded in the host processor or a companion microcontroller. In addition to game controllers, the TM040040 is an ideal solution for a wide variety of products.

  • Windows®-compatible embedded features mean no additional drivers needed

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.

The touchpad is fully compatible with standard Windows mouse drivers. No additional driver is required to activate many of its advanced features. For custom functionality at the product design stage, Cirque offers software that allows OEMs to enable, disable, or personalize advanced settings and/or reprogram the touch sensitive area.

Custom designed circle sensors are also possible.  The hardware and firmware of the TM040040 is easily scalable enabling a wide range of circle sensor sizes.
