  • Patent number: 10756146
    Abstract: In an embodiment, apparatus having a touch-sensitive screen, a touch-sensor controller and a flexible printed circuit. Conductive electrodes are substantially aligned with one or more gaps between pixels of the two-dimensional array. First conductive electrodes form vertices within the one or more gaps between pixels of the two-dimensional array such that the vertices do not obscure in plan view. The touch-sensor controller is configured to detect and process the change in capacitance at one or more touch-sensor nodes to determine the presence and location of a touch-sensor input. One or more tracks of conductive material is electrically connected to the flexible printed circuit.

  • Publication number: 20200019250
    Abstract: In one embodiment, computer-readable non-transitory storage media receive one or more signals based on motion of an object, a device, or both. The received signals are compared to a motion profile which defines unintended motion of the object, the device, or both, and this comparison determines whether any of the signals represent unintended motion of the stylus or device. The received signals are then processed to correct for the unintended motion defined by the motion profile.
