  • Patent number: 9851854
    Abstract: A touch display device includes a display panel, a plurality of receive electrodes, an enable electrode driver, and a touch sense circuit. The display panel includes a plurality of data electrodes and a plurality of enable electrodes connected to a plurality of display cells. Each display cell is connected to a pair of an enable electrode and a data electrode. The enable electrode driver drives a first enable electrode with a display voltage to activate display cells coupled to the first enable electrode, and drives a second enable electrode different than the first enable electrode with a transmit voltage to produce a capacitive coupling between the second enable electrode and a receive electrode. The touch sense circuit is configured to recognize a touch input to the touch display device based on a change in capacitance between the second enable electrode and the receive electrode.

  • Publication number: 20140218380
    Abstract: A method and apparatus is provided in which a digital image is transmitted to a presentation projector resource over a wireless transmission medium using a reduced amount of bandwidth by transmitting a subset of the digital image data. The subset of image data may be a delta subset that represents those areas of the image that have changed since the previous transmission. The subset image data may also be a scalable vector graphics representation of the subset of the digital image. A projector discovery logic selects a suitable projector resource based on the order or signal strength of the discovery replies. A wireless image transmission session is established with the selected projector resource during which the projector is unavailable to other devices. The subset image data may be compressed and transmission coordinated with the projector resource so that the data is sent only when it is ready to be received.

  • Patent number: 8736581
    Abstract: A touch-screen device includes a radiation source, a waveguide configured to receive radiation emitted by the source and to cause some of the radiation to undergo total internal reflection within the waveguide, a pliable frustrating layer disposed relative to the waveguide to enable the frustrating layer to contact the waveguide when the frustrating layer is physically deformed, the frustrating layer being configured to cause frustration of the total internal reflection of the received radiation within the waveguide when the frustrating layer is physically deformed to contact the waveguide such that some of the received escapes from the waveguide at the contact point, an imaging sensor configured to detect some of the radiation that escapes from the waveguide, and a structure disposed relative to the frustrating layer, the structure configured to steer at least a portion of the radiation that escapes from the waveguide toward the imaging sensor.

  • Publication number: 20120268427
    Abstract: Optical filtered sensor-in-pixel technology for touch sensing, in which a waveguide receives infrared light emitted by a light source and causes at least some of the received infrared light to undergo total internal reflection within the waveguide. A frustrating layer is disposed relative to the waveguide so as to contact the waveguide when a touch input is provided. The frustrating layer causes frustration of the total internal reflection of the received infrared light within the waveguide at a contact point between the frustrating layer and the waveguide. A sensor-in-pixel display displays an image that is perceivable through the waveguide and the frustrating layer and includes photosensors. The photosensors have a photosensor corresponding to each pixel of the image and sense at least some of the infrared light that escapes from the waveguide at the contact point.
