Woory Industrial chooses aXiom for Hyundai Genesis GV80 HVAC solution
TouchNetix, a provider of advanced touch solutions, announces that Woory Industrial Co. has selected its aXiom technology for the Hyundai Genesis GV80.
The aXiom AX54A chip is responsible for operating the heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) touch and force controls system within the centre console.
The aXiom AX54A chip combines high-performance multi-touch sensing with safety-enhancing force sensing technology in one chip. This integration helps avoid accidental user interaction by requiring additional intent from users to operate the HVAC controls. The single-chip solution for touch and force sensing not only saves space on the Printed Circuit Board (PCB) but also reduces overall costs for the customer, offering a modern, safety-enhancing, and intuitive solution for the end-user.
Comments from Woory Industrial and TouchNetix Moon Soo Byeon, Director of Research Engineering (R&D) at Woory Industrial, commented: "It’s been a pleasure working with TouchNetix on the GV80 project. The AX54A chip delivers exceptional performance with force sensing and the dedicated support from the TouchNetix Engineering Team has been pivotal from design through to mass production. TouchNetix’s commitment to quality and exceptional customer service have made them a trusted partner for the future.”
Vegard Wollan, CEO at TouchNetix, added: "We’re thrilled to be selected by Woory Industrial, and Hyundai – a world-leading automotive manufacturer. Our single-chip aXiom technology allows manufacturers to launch products with modern and safety-enhancing touch solutions. It’s been great collaborating with the Woory Industrial team on this project and we look forward to working with them again."
Features of the AX54A Chip The AX54A chip is ideal for smaller touch and force solutions and offers additional features, including:
- 3D proximity and hover sensing for air gestures.
- Multi-force sensing and low-latency haptic triggering.
- Integrated support for passive and active Dial-on-Display.
- Compatibility with curved shapes, thick lenses, and finger guiding overlays.
- Suitability for smart surfaces, such as wood, plastic, foam, and leatherette.
- Parallel multi-touch and multi-force capabilities for safety-enhancing systemic redundancy.
aXiom AX54A chip is available and in stock.
The Genesis GV80 is currently available for sale, with product listings on the Genesis website.
