  • Patent number: 10282585
    Abstract: A fingerprint sensor-compatible overlay material which uses anisotropic conductive material to enable accurate imaging of a fingerprint through an overlay is disclosed. The anisotropic conductive material has increased conductivity in a direction orthogonal to the fingerprint sensor, increasing the capacitive coupling of the fingerprint to the sensor surface, allowing the fingerprint sensor to accurately image the fingerprint through the overlay. Methods for forming a fingerprint sensor-compatible overlay are also disclosed.
    Type: Grant

  • Patent number: 10061961
    Abstract: A sensor-compatible overlay is disclosed which uses anisotropic conductive material to increase capacitive coupling of a conductive object through the overlay material to a capacitive sensor. The anisotropic conductive material has increased conductivity in a direction orthogonal to the capacitive sensor. In one embodiment, the overlay is configured to enclose a device which includes a capacitive sensor. In another embodiment, the overlay is configured as a glove.

  • Publication number: 20160364591
    Abstract: A user interface with fingerprint recognition and secure access to sensitive information and applications is described. Fingerprint recognition may occur on a dedicated module or integrated into a touchscreen. The user interface may be configured to display icons representative of secure applications and gate access thereto via biometric authentication or the user interface may be configured to display icons representative of secure applications only upon detection of valid biometric data.

  • Patent number: 9244576
    Abstract: Apparatuses and methods of touch discrimination are described. One method receives data from an occupant classification system and sets a touch detection threshold of a touch-sensing device based on the received data. The method may be used to discriminate between an adult touch and a child touch and to selectively allow access to control functionality to adults and not to children.

  • Patent number: 8587546
    Abstract: Embodiments described herein provide multi-panel display systems and methods for operating the same. Content is generated on a first display device based on first user input received through a user interface device coupled to the first display device. Second user input is received on the user interface device. The generated content is displayed on a second display device in response to the receiving of the second user input on the user interface device.

  • Patent number: 7408396
    Abstract: Disclosed is a circuit to provide protection from an over voltage signal. The circuit protects against load dumps or positive transients applied to any electronic unit. The circuit isolates the protected circuitry from the transient voltage by two ways. The circuit limits the current flow and clamping the voltage using a small package zener diode. Additionally, the circuit causes a specific voltage drop between the applied transient and the protected circuit.
