  • Patent number: 10725596
    Abstract: A capacitive touch sensor includes two sensing layers. Each sensing layer has capacitive sensing strings and electromagnetic antenna strings. Each of the capacitive sensing strings and electromagnetic antenna strings is connected to a highly conductive element. A transparent insulative layer is arranged between the two sensing layers. The two groups of sensing strings on two the capacitive sensing layers orthogonally interlace with each other to form a capacitive sensing matrix.

  • Publication number: 20200150827
    Abstract: A touch sensor includes a first sensing layer, a second sensing layer and an insulative layer therebetween. Each of the first sensing layer and the second sensing layer has capacitive sensing strings and electromagnetic antenna strings. Each capacitive sensing string is composed of capacitive sensing units. The electromagnetic antenna strings are arranged. Each of the capacitive sensing strings and the electromagnetic antenna strings is connected with a tiny wire. The capacitive sensing strings on the first sensing layer are crossed with the second capacitive sensing strings on the second sensing layer to form complementary patterns. The capacitive sensing units on the first sensing layer and the second capacitive sensing units on the second sensing layer form a grid-shaped capacitive sensing unit matrix. The electromagnetic antenna strings on the first sensing layer are crossed with the electromagnetic antenna strings on the second sensing layer to form a grid-shaped electromagnetic antenna matrix.

  • Patent number: 10585542
    Abstract: A touch sensor includes an insulative substrate; a first sensing layer, having first sensing strings arranged along a first axis, and a first interval being disposed between every two adjacent first sensing strings; and a second sensing layer, having line paths arranged along a second axis, and a second interval being disposed between every two adjacent line paths. A plurality of the line paths composes a second sensing string. Each second sensing string has an active unit and an inactive unit. The active unit is formed by one or more line paths connected by a crossing line. The line paths of the inactive units are connected to a ground line. The first sensing strings and the second sensing strings are separately orthogonally arranged on two opposite sides of the substrate. The second interval is less than the first interval in width.

  • Patent number: 10528184
    Abstract: The invention includes a substrate, a touch sensor layer, an insulative film and a signal transmission layer. The touch sensor layer has sensing columns. Each sensing column has a first sensing electrode and second sensing electrodes. The first sensing electrode is connected to a first contact through a first transparent path. Each second sensing electrode is connected to a second contact through a second transparent path. The second contacts are arranged in the same order of the second sensing electrodes connected thereto. The insulative film covers the second contacts. The signal transmission layer has first signal wires, second signal wires and signal output terminals. Two end of each first signal wire are separately connected to the first contact and one of the signal output terminals. Each second signal wire connects the second contacts in a line and is connected to one of the signal output terminals.
