  • Publication number: 20220373859
    Abstract: A rotatable operation apparatus includes a rotatable operation member, a magnet having alternately magnetized magnetic poles, first and second magnetic members respectively including first and second teeth, a body frame, and a detector. A magnetized direction of each magnetic pole is parallel to a predetermined axis about which the rotatable operation member rotates. The magnet has a ring shape and is configured to rotate about the predetermined axis as the rotatable operation member rotates. The rotatable operation apparatus generates an operation force according to a change in positions of the magnetic poles, caused by the rotation of the magnet, relative to positions of the first tooth and the second tooth. The magnet, the first magnetic member, and the second magnetic member are housed inside the body frame. When viewed from a thrust direction of the magnet, the detector is disposed at a position that does not overlap with the magnet.

  • Patent number: 11418703
    Abstract: Electronic equipment includes a first operating member having a detecting unit to detect touch and slide operations. Where a detecting unit touch detecting face is touched in the touch operation over a first and a second predetermined area, larger than the first predetermined area, or less, a first function is executed. Where the touch detecting face of the detecting unit is touched in the touch operation over more than the second predetermined area, a second function is executed. The touch detecting face is divided into a first, a second, and a third touch detecting face, in that order in a direction of the slide operation. A relation of 1.4?W1/W2?6.0 is satisfied. W1 represents a length of the touch detecting face in the direction of the slide operation, and W2 represents a length of the second touch detecting face in the direction of the slide operation.
