  • Patent number: 10860151
    Abstract: A capacitive touch sensor includes sensing columns. Each sensing column has a common sensing electrode and driving electrodes. The driving electrodes are divided into two groups, which are connected to contacts in two bridging areas through electrode wires. Each bridging area is covered by an insulation film with through holes corresponding to the contacts. Signal wires of the driving electrodes pass through the through holes to connect the contacts of the driving electrodes of the sensing columns, which are located in a line, to form a signal channel. The signal wires connecting the common sensing electrodes pass through one of the two bridging areas and insulatively intersect the signal wires of the driving electrodes of the signal channel. Electrode extending portions of the common sensing electrodes are extended to the other bridging area to insulatively intersect signal wires of the driving electrodes of the signal channel.

  • Patent number: 10860153
    Abstract: A touch panel includes a substrate, a touch sensor, a bezel layer, a signal wire layer and a protective layer, which are superposed in order. The touch sensor has sensing traces and a dummy pattern. A trace contact at an end of each sensing trace is located at a margin of the substrate. The bezel layer is provided with through holes corresponding to the trace contacts. The signal wire layer includes signal wires arranged in a range of the bezel layer. A signal contact at an end of each signal wire is located correspondingly to one of the through holes. The through holes are filled with conductive glue to electrically connect the signal contacts and the trace contacts. The conductive glue is made of opaque conductive material with a color which is substantially identical to the bezel layer.

  • Publication number: 20200310568
    Abstract: A glass structure includes a glass substrate, a first sensing layer, a second sensing layer, a signal wire layer and an insulative layer. Each of the two sensing layers is formed by a metal oxide conductive film electrically connected onto a metal mesh and has sensing columns and isolation columns which insulatively separate the sensing columns. An end of each of the sensing columns is provided with a contact connected to the signal wire layer. Conductive material of each isolation column is divided into disconnected insulative areas. The insulative layer is adhesively disposed between the first and second sensing layers. The sensing columns of the first sensing layers are orthogonal to the second sensing columns on the second sensing layer to constitute a capacitive sensing unit array.

  • Publication number: 20200150827
    Abstract: A touch sensor includes a first sensing layer, a second sensing layer and an insulative layer therebetween. Each of the first sensing layer and the second sensing layer has capacitive sensing strings and electromagnetic antenna strings. Each capacitive sensing string is composed of capacitive sensing units. The electromagnetic antenna strings are arranged. Each of the capacitive sensing strings and the electromagnetic antenna strings is connected with a tiny wire. The capacitive sensing strings on the first sensing layer are crossed with the second capacitive sensing strings on the second sensing layer to form complementary patterns. The capacitive sensing units on the first sensing layer and the second capacitive sensing units on the second sensing layer form a grid-shaped capacitive sensing unit matrix. The electromagnetic antenna strings on the first sensing layer are crossed with the electromagnetic antenna strings on the second sensing layer to form a grid-shaped electromagnetic antenna matrix.

  • Publication number: 20200105544
    Abstract: Embodiments include forming an interposer having reinforcing structures disposed in a core layer of the interposer. The interposer may be attached to a package device by electrical connectors. The reinforcing structures provide rigidity and thermal dissipation for the package device. Some embodiments may include an interposer with an opening in an upper core layer of the interposer to a recessed bond pad. Some embodiments may also use connectors between the interposer and the package device where a solder material connected to the interposer surrounds a metal pillar connected to the package device.

  • Patent number: 10585542
    Abstract: A touch sensor includes an insulative substrate; a first sensing layer, having first sensing strings arranged along a first axis, and a first interval being disposed between every two adjacent first sensing strings; and a second sensing layer, having line paths arranged along a second axis, and a second interval being disposed between every two adjacent line paths. A plurality of the line paths composes a second sensing string. Each second sensing string has an active unit and an inactive unit. The active unit is formed by one or more line paths connected by a crossing line. The line paths of the inactive units are connected to a ground line. The first sensing strings and the second sensing strings are separately orthogonally arranged on two opposite sides of the substrate. The second interval is less than the first interval in width.

  • Publication number: 20190243610
    Abstract: A processing unit performs multiply-and-accumulate (MAC) operations on asymmetrically quantized data. The processing unit includes a MAC hardware unit to perform the MAC operations on a first data sequence and a second data sequence to generate an asymmetric MAC output. Both the first data sequence and the second data sequence are asymmetrically quantized. The processing unit further includes an accumulator hardware unit to accumulate the first data sequence concurrently with the MAC operations to generate an accumulated output. The processing unit further includes a multiply-and-add (MAD) hardware unit to multiply the accumulated output with a second offset to generate a multiplication output, and to add the multiplication output, the asymmetric MAC output and a pre-computed value calculated before runtime to generate a final output. The second offset indicates an amount of asymmetry of the second data sequence with respect to zero.
