Synaptics’ ClickPad solutions are fully integrated into ChromeOS and provide premium pointing, clicking and scrolling capabilities. Designed to Google’s exacting specifications, Chromebooks are optimized for the Web with cloud-based computing technology and are designed to provide a fast, simple and secure user experience. The large sized ClickPad enhances the notebook experience, ranging from interactive Web browsing, scrolling through pages of content and flicking through photos and videos.
Both the Acer and Samsung Chromebooks utilize Synaptics ClickPads with Image Sensing multi-touch, full-time finger tracking technology. It also includes SmartSense™ Accidental Contact Mitigation (ACM), which helps reduce accidental taps and clicks.
Key ClickPad features include ClickSmart™ that provides a universal mode to support both "classic" and "modern" notebook clicking preferences. "Classic" users operate a ClickPad like a TouchPad with buttons (left button in the lower left of the ClickPad and right button in the lower right) while "modern" users utilize a more direct interaction model. In addition, Acer’s Chromia Series also features ClickEQ™, a complete mechanical module that eliminates clicking "dead zones" on the ClickPad, and provides uniform button pressure and click depth for superior interaction and performance.
