Wacom’s Active ES pen solution helps Lenovo deliver the industry’s first creative mobile workstation “ThinkPad P40 YOGA”

December 3, 2015 (Tokyo, Japan) -- Wacom Co., Ltd, announced that Lenovo has adopted “Active ES” pen technology, Wacom’s unique capacitive pen solution, for their new creative mobile workstation, the ThinkPad P40 Yoga.

While offering ISV-certified, excellent workstation performance, the ThinkPad P40 Yoga also guarantees premium digital sketching capability powered by Wacom’s Active ES solution with 2,048 levels of pressure sensitivity, letting users unleash their creativity to the maximum extent.


As the industry’s first-ever multimode mobile workstation, the ThinkPad P40 Yoga offers the versatility to work across four modes —laptop, stand, tent and tablet— and gives professionals the 360 degrees of flexibility to go through their creative processes anytime, anywhere, leveraging the superb sketching capability and the high-resolution (2560 x 1440) IPS display. 

Wacom’s Active ES pen solution handles high performance pen and multi finger touch inputs simultaneously with a single sensor and a single ASIC controller. It realizes responsive, natural and intuitive writing & drawing experience, accurately reproducing intricate details of art pieces as well as closely tracing hand-drawn sketches and memos.

By promoting the adoption of Active ES technologies in a variety of mobile devices, Wacom partners with industry leaders, such as Lenovo, to make the world a more creative place with its digital pen sensor systems.
