  • Publication number: 20190252362
    Abstract: Methods of making semiconductor device packages may involve cutting kerfs in streets between regions of a semiconductor wafer and positioning stacks of semiconductor dice on portions of surfaces of at least some adjacent regions. A protective material may be dispensed only between the stacks of the semiconductor dice, over the exposed remainders of the regions, and in the kerfs. A back side of the semiconductor wafer may be ground to a final thickness, revealing the protective material in the kerfs at a side of the semiconductor wafer opposite the stacks of the semiconductor dice. The protective material between the stacks of the semiconductor dice and within the kerfs may be cut through, leaving the protective material on sides of the semiconductor dice of the stacks and on side surfaces of the regions within the kerfs.

  • Patent number: 9626049
    Abstract: A capacitive touch panel includes a first sensor pattern and second sensor pattern. The first sensor pattern supports mutual-capacitance detection and the second sensor pattern supports self-capacitance detection. The first sensor pattern includes row conductors and column conductors which intersect each other at mutual-capacitance sensing locations. The second sensor pattern includes island conductors. The island conductors are grouped in clusters of conductors, each cluster providing a self-capacitance sensing location. Control circuitry coupled to the first and second sensor patterns functions to make touch/hover position detections by sensing changes in capacitance at the mutual-capacitance and self-capacitance nodes. The row and column conductors include openings, and the island conductors are positioned in vertical alignment with corresponding openings in the conductors.

  • Publication number: 20160292679
    Abstract: A system can determine that a service has been initiated for a user by a service provider. During performance or progress of the service, the system can receive location data points from a computing device operated by the user or the service provider and detect an occurrence of an event in connection with the service based on one or more of a set of received location data points, or an elapsed amount of time since the initiation of the service. In response to detecting the occurrence of the event, the system can determine a score that enables the transport to be monitored for unauthorized overuse.

  • Patent number: 9335872
    Abstract: A touch screen system is configured to sense a proximate or actual touch made to a touch screen panel. In response thereto, an RF transmitter is actuated to emit RF energy. A stylus receives the emitted RF energy and includes an RF energy harvesting circuit that powers an enable circuit. The enable circuit generates an enable signal. The stylus responds to the enable signal by performing a sensing operation. The information collected in the sensing operation is then communicated over an RF communications link back to the touch screen system. The sensing operation preferably is a pressure sensing operation for detecting an applied pressure at an end of the stylus resulting from contact with the touch screen panel.

  • Patent number: 9246485
    Abstract: A single ITO layer design for a touchscreen panel incorporates a matrix of sensor cells formed from a single ITO layer of capacitive sensor pads, sensor bars, force lines and sense lines. Columns of multiplexed force lines are connected to rows of sensor pads to form force trees such that the force line of the end pair of sensor pads has a wide track, with the force lines of each subsequent pair of sensor pads having a reduced track width. Disposed between the columns of force trees, the matrix of sensor cells also includes columns of sensor bars connected to control circuitry via sense lines. The control circuitry applies a signal to the force trees to generate capacitance between rows of sensor pads and adjacent sensor bars. The control circuitry senses changes in the capacitance and resolves the location of a user touch in the matrix of sensor cells.

  • Patent number: 9164674
    Abstract: A touch controller is coupled to a touch screen and detects a first gesture at a first point on the touch screen. The first gesture includes physical contact of the touch screen by a user device at the first point. The touch controller detects a second gesture that is associated with movement of the user device from the first point to a second point on the touch screen. The second gesture includes detecting movement of the user device within a sensing range from the first point to the second point. The sensing range corresponds to an orthogonal distance from a surface of the touch screen. The touch controller detects a third gesture at the second touch point. The third gesture includes physical contact of the touch screen at the second touch point. Upon detecting the first, second and third gestures the touch controller performs a corresponding action.

  • Patent number: 9128560
    Abstract: A borderless touchscreen panel includes a first conductive layer having rows of capacitive sensors and receiving traces, and a second conductive layer having columns of sensor bars and transmitting traces. The capacitive sensors are coupled to control circuitry via the receiving traces, and the sensor bars are coupled to the control circuitry via the transmitting traces. Peripheral sensor bars are disposed over the receiving traces such that the receiving traces can be routed within an active portion of the borderless touchscreen panel without obstructing its touch-detection capabilities. Furthermore, the receiving traces are comprised of a transparent material such as indium tin oxide, and therefore do not obstruct the display capabilities of the active portion. Thus, there is no need for an inactive border region since the receiving traces are disposed within the active portion without obstructing either the touch-detection or display capabilities of the borderless touchscreen panel.

  • Patent number: 9035805
    Abstract: A system and method for receiving character entries in mobile computer devices uses an improved keypad. The keypad uses a dual key press method in which each key of the keypad includes a unique key definition when it alone is pressed. Each of two adjacent keys of the keypad also include a unique key definition when the two adjacent keys are pressed at substantially the same time. A keypad controller receives inputs from the keys and decodes the single key entries and the dual key entries. The keypad occupies a relatively small keypad area while providing full size keys for the user. The keypad also has a mode key that enables a user to change the alphabet mode of the keypad to a numerical mode.

  • Patent number: 8963843
    Abstract: A method of matrix sensing using delay-based capacitance sensing, including using X-axis lines as active lines for capacitance measurements and using Y-axis lines as a disturbance to identify the location of a touch in a key matrix is disclosed. A sensing signal is applied to the X-axis lines, and a disturbance signal is applied to the Y-axis lines. If a location is touched, cross-capacitance is reduced, which is measured by sweeping data along the X-axis lines.

  • Patent number: 8928609
    Abstract: A touch sensitive display includes a capacitive touch sensor configured to output capacitance values. A motion sensor makes a motion detection and generates a motion signal including a motion value indicative of sensed motion detection. A touch detection circuit is coupled to receive the capacitance values and motion values. The touch detection circuit processes the capacitance values to make a hovering detection and a touching detection with respect to the display. The touch detection circuit further generates an output signal including the motion value correlated in time with each of the hovering detection and touching detection. The output signal may be processed as a user interface control signal. The output signal may also be processed to determine an impulsive strength of the touching detection as a function of an elapsed time between hover and touch and the measured motion values.
