What is the measurement resolution for touch coordinates in the mTouch™ ARxxxx Series?

The measurement resolution for touch coordinates is 10-bit. The measured values are shifted (multiplied by four) and reported in a 12-bit format. In the reporting protocol, the Least Significant coordinate bits, X1:X0 and Y1:Y0, will be zeroes. The resulting full-scale range for reported touch coordinates is 0 to 4095.
