  • Patent number: 10747330
    Abstract: An electronic device determines an estimate of angular position based on an accelerometric signal supplied by an accelerometric sensor and as a function of at least one of a gyroscopic signal from a gyroscopic sensor and a magnetic signal from a magnetic-field sensor. A processing module implements a complementary filter, which is provided with a first processing block, a second processing block, and a combination block. The first processing block receives the acceleration signal and an input signal indicative of the magnetic signal and generates a geomagnetic quaternion. The second processing block receives a signal indicative of the gyroscopic signal (gyro) and generates a gyroscopic quaternion. The combination block determines the estimate ({circumflex over (q)}) of angular position by complementarily combining the geomagnetic quaternion and the gyroscopic quaternion based on a combination factor that has a dynamic value and an adaptive value and that varies as a function of the operating conditions.

  • Patent number: 10691269
    Abstract: A location of contact with a touch sensitive device is determined. Output signals associated with a plurality of electrodes such as formed on a single layer of the touch sensitive device are measured to identify a first electrode positioned at an approximate location of contact with the touch sensor. An output signal associated with a different electrode that is separated from the first electrode is measured to determine an undesired signal amount, such as due to deflection. An undesired single amount associated with the first electrode may be estimated based on the undesired signal amount measured at the other electrode. The signal amount measured at the first electrode is then compensated by the estimated undesired signal amount. The location of contact with the touch sensor is then determined based on the compensated signal amount.
