TM5957 trackpad’s Sensor Side and Dimensions

Cirque's TM5957 trackpad is an embedded Serial Peripheral Interface® (SPI) or Inter-Integrated Circuit® (I2C) device. The dimensions for the TM5957 make it ideal for integration into products where space is a constraint.


  • Keyboards, keypads, and mouse alternatives
  • Industrial control panels
  • Medical instruments
  • PC peripherals
  • Point-of-sale devices
  • Laptops


  • I2C and SPI compatibility
  • Low power consumption
  • Easy product integration due to thin, lightweight design
  • No maintenance required – Sealable design is immune to dust and abuse
  • Superior navigation and high responsiveness
  • 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. Hardware-configurable options on the module allow for taps (function as left-button clicks), corner-taps (function as right-button clicks), vertical scroll (functions as mouse scroll wheel) and more, depending on the specific application.

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.

OEM customers can order a trackpad with a Cirque overlay or without an overlay and purchase their own customized overlay. Custom overlays may include a logo and matching colors. Contact Cirque for overlay design guidelines.
