  • Patent number: 10139944
    Abstract: A stand alone input device can be a touch pad that provides touch inputs to an associated computing device. The input device can include a wedge-shaped base defining an inner cavity, a touch plate having a touch surface disposed over the inner cavity and configured to accept a touch input, cantilevered beams coupled to the wedge-shaped base and the touch plate and configured to deliver a force from the touch input, a haptic generator coupled to the cantilevered beams and configured to generate a haptic output in response to the touch input, an antenna component integrated within a wall of the wedge-shaped base and an antenna resonance cavity located within the inner cavity, and a switch assembly including a sliding component having a pin through a wedge-shaped base wall and a switch beam having a protrusion that engages multiple recesses located at a detent region on the sliding component.

  • Patent number: 9928950
    Abstract: A polarized electromagnetic actuator includes a movable armature, a stator, and at least one coil wrapped around the stator. At least one permanent magnet is disposed over the stator. When a current is applied to the at least one coil, the at least one coil is configured to reduce a magnetic flux of at least one permanent magnet in one direction and increase a magnetic flux of at least one permanent magnet in another direction. The movable armature moves in the direction of the increased magnetic flux.

  • Patent number: 9745055
    Abstract: A method of isolating vibrations between vibrating bodies includes determining a pressure differential between a first fluid chamber and a second fluid chamber of a liquid inertia vibration eliminator (LIVE) unit, and selectively injecting fluid into or withdrawing fluid from the LIVE unit based on the pressure differential. A system for isolating vibrations between bodies includes a vibration isolator including fluid, a fluid regulator valve in fluid communication with the vibration isolator to selectively flow fluid through the vibration isolator, a pressurized fluid source in fluid communication with the fluid regulator to supply fluid to the fluid regulator, a controller in signal communication with the fluid regulator to control fluid flow between the fluid regulation valve and the vibration isolator, and at least one sensor in signal communication with the controller.

  • Publication number: 20160188010
    Abstract: A force sensing input device (such as a force sensing mouse) includes at least one force sensor and at least one top portion movably connected to at least one bottom portion. When a force is applied to the top portion, the top portion exerts pressure on the force sensor. The force sensor obtains force data based upon the pressure. The amount of force applied to the top portion, within a range of force amounts, is determined from at least the force data. In this way, a broader range of inputs may be receivable from the force sensing input device as compared to input devices that merely detect whether or not a button or similar element has been pushed.
