    Abstract: A touch driving device and a touch movement track identification method are provided. The touch driving device includes a touch sensing circuit and a touch control circuit. The touch sensing circuit receives touch sensing signals from a touch sensor array when a touch display screen is operated in a display power saving mode, and generates digital touch sensing data according to the touch sensing signals. The touch control circuit periodically generates touch coordinates according to the digital touch sensing data, identifies whether an input symbol corresponding to a touch movement track formed by the touch coordinates generated consecutively matches a preconfigured symbol, and outputs a matching result to a core processing unit of the electronic device. The touch coordinates are generated when the orientation of the input symbol drawn on the touch display screen is not the same as a screen orientation of the touch display screen.

  • Patent number: 9471186
    Abstract: A method for improving linearity of touch system coordinates first reads two-dimensional raw data of a capacitive touch panel. Next, it reads a pixel and adjacent pixels of the pixel from the two-dimension raw data. Then, it determines whether the value of the pixel is great than a pre-determined threshold. If the value of the pixel is not greater than the pre-determined threshold, it then determines whether there is a value of the adjacent pixels is greater than the pre-determined threshold. If there is no value of the adjacent pixels greater than the pre-determined threshold, it sets the value of the pixel to a pre-determined value. Otherwise, it reserves the value of the pixel in order to increase the linearity of two-dimensional raw data so as to avoid the interference of noise to the two-dimensional raw data.

  • Patent number: 9280243
    Abstract: In a sensing method using self-capacitance and mutual-capacitance alternatively to reduce touch noises, a control device configures a first driving and sensing device and a second driving and sensing device to perform an initialization. The control device configures the first and second driving and sensing devices to perform at least one self-capacitance sensing for producing a first possible touch point range during a first work mode. Then, the control device configures the first and second driving and sensing devices to perform at least one mutual-capacitance sensing for producing a second possible touch point range during a second work mode. The control device determines if there is range conjunction between the first and second possible touch point ranges. The control device produces a possible touch point range conjunction and calculates coordinates of touch points based on the possible touch point range conjunction.
