Woory Industrial Selects aXiom for Hyundai Genesis GV80 HVAC Solution

TouchNetix, a leading provider of advanced touch solutions, today announces that its aXiom technology has been selected by Woory Industrial Co. Ltd. for the newly released Hyundai Genesis GV80. The aXiom AX54A chip operates the heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) touch and force controls system within the centre console.

TouchNetix’ aXiom AX54A chip offers high performance multi-touch sensing and safety-enhancing force sensing technology integrated in a single chip.  The use of force-sensing avoids accidental user interaction and requires users to provide additional intent to safely operate the HVAC controls. The single chip aXiom solution for touch and force sensing saves space on the PCB, and reduces overall cost for the customer, while providing a modern, safety-enhancing and more intuitive solution for the end user.
