CrucialTec, Korea’s Hidden Global Champion

Optical Trackpads (OTPs) - which are based on nano-optical technology and operate in much the same way as computer mice on high-performance handheld devices such as smartphones.

One of the most advanced input devices for next generation handhelds is OTP, developed by CrucialTec Co., a Korea-based next-generation input device provider. CrucialTec is pushing the envelope with its OTP: it has been ramping up sales of OTP in Asia and striking new deals with Chinese and Japanese companies.

CrucialTec, who developed and commercialized the world's first nano-optic based input device called OTP, holds more than 200 patents - for example, on Samsung's finger mouse in 2007- and has been doing brisk business with global heavyweights such as RIM, Intel, Panasonic and Nokia , not to mention Samsung and LG.
