  • Publication number: 20210157447
    Abstract: A touch panel and a manufacturing method thereof are provided. The touch panel includes a substrate, peripheral leads, a touch-sensing electrode, and first covers. The peripheral leads are disposed on the substrate. Each peripheral lead has a sidewall and an upper surface. The first covers cover the upper surfaces of the peripheral leads. The touch-sensing electrode includes a plurality of modified metal nanowires. The modified metal nanowires have first surfaces in direct contact with each other at an intersection. The modified metal nanowires have second surfaces with a covering structure, and the second surfaces are at non-intersections.

  • Patent number: 5254860
    Abstract: An apparatus for supporting and guiding an optical character reader across a document containing information to be read, such as a business card or an identification card, comprises a frame having a top surface, and a pair of rails disposed on the top surface of the frame, the optical character reader being supported for sliding movement along the rails. An inner guide is located at a forward end of the apparatus. The inner guide includes a slot which receives the optical character reader and acts as a stop for it, thereby determining an initial position of the optical character reader. The top surface of the frame includes an inclined depression which is dimensioned for closely receiving the business or identification card. Desirably, the depression includes a clamping slot along a rear edge thereof into which the business or identification card can be inserted.
