For a large-sized touch screen, we designed and evaluated a real-time touch microarchitecture using a field-programmable gate array (FPGA). A high-speed hardware accelerator based on a parallel touch algorithm is suggested and implemented in this letter. The touch controller also has a timing control unit and an analog digital convert (ADC) control unit for analog touch sensing circuits. Measurement results of processing time showed that the touch controller with its proposed microarchitecture is five times faster than the 32-bit reduced instruction set computer (RISC) processor without the touch accelerator.
