September 10, 2007 InPlay Technologies has announced an upgrade to its digital pen input technology for tablet PCs. The FinePoint MPD-9xx uses RF technology in the digital pen (versus the analog pen used with many pen computing systems) and electromagnetic technology in the grid which according to InPlay, delivers enhanced accuracy for charting pen tip status, sensitivity and position.

The FinePoint MPD-9xx system consists of a single-board digitizer and digital writing pen. The platform is designed to allow OEMs to integrate a wide range of customization options such as secure pens, flash memory capability and unique pen IDs. Additionally, digital signaling uses less power than analog and takes up less space. The controller components are housed in a single strip on the side of the digitizer board, reducing thickness to a possible 0.4mm.

The FinePoint MPD-9xx is available as either a battery powered or battery free pen, and the digitizer grids come in three sizes - 7 inch, 12.1 inch and 14.0-inch.

First introduced in June 2004, FinePoint’s a digital computing pen technology requires less bandwidth, improving the position signal fidelity and enabling the pen to be interpreted as it moves across the tablet surface. Pens can also be given a unique ID, enhanced security and multiple pens can be used simultaneously.

The FinePoint MPD-9xx is available as either a battery powered or battery free pen, and the digitizer grids come in three sizes - 7 inch, 12.1 inch and 14.0-inch.
