Google: Synaptics partners closely with Google's Android and Chrome hardware and software teams to define and develop industry-leading features and enhance user experiences for notebook PCs, smartphones and tablets using those operating systems. This collaboration means both a faster time to market and native support of advanced features.
Intel: Synaptics plays a key role in co-developing with Intel new technologies for future computing platforms, including support on chipset reference designs, compatibility alignment, and driving joint strategic initiatives. This allows Synaptics to remain at the leading edge of new technology opportunities for its touch, display and biometrics solutions.
Microsoft: Synaptics is engaged in co-development efforts with Microsoft on two key initiatives -- Windows Input and Windows Hello. We have collaborated to define the Precision TouchPad (PTP) framework for creating a best-in-class user experience with Windows Input. This collaboration began with Windows 8, has extended through Windows 10 and is expected to continue in future versions of the operating system. Additionally, Synaptics is partnering with Microsoft in the pursuit to eliminate user-created passwords, notably the introduction of the Windows Hello Biometric suite, for which Synaptics is working to both extend the use of its biometrics and enhance its intuitiveness in Windows.
Qualcomm: Synaptics and Qualcomm collaborate on reference-design and compatibility efforts for next-generation mobile devices, working to ensure the companies' respective solutions interoperate seemlessly.
