- This paper presents a mutual capacitive touch screen panel (TSP) readout IC (ROIC) with a differential continuousmode parallel operation architecture (DCPA). The proposed architecture achieves a high product of signal-to-noise ratio (SNR) and frame rate, which is a requirement of ROIC for large-sized TSP. DCPA is accomplished by using the proposed differential sensing method with a parallel architecture in a continuousmode. This architecture is implemented using a continuous-type transmitter for parallel signaling and a differential-architecture receiver. A continuous-type differential charge amplifier removes the common-mode noise component, and reduces the self-noise by the band-pass filtering effect of the continuous-mode charge amplifier. In addition, the differential parallel architecture cancels the timing skew problem caused by the continuous-mode parallel operation and effectively enhances the power spectrum density of the signal. The proposed ROIC was fabricated using a 0.18-μm CMOS process and occupied an active area of 1.25 mm2. The proposed system achieved a 72 dB SNR and 240 Hz frame rate with a 32 channel TX by 10 channel RX mutual capacitive TSP. Moreover, the proposed differential-parallel architecture demonstrated higher immunity to lamp noise and display noise. The proposed system consumed 42.5 mW with a 3.3-V supply.
