Energy-Efficient Mobile Touch Architecture

Adaptive Touch Concept Faster touch responsiveness in computer user interface provides better experience to users. Faster responsiveness can be achieved by higher operating frequency in touch system. However, it requires higher power consumption. This research looks for solutions to improve touch responsiveness while keeping low-power consumption when it is needed.
