  • Patent number: 8547350
    Abstract: A force/displacement touch device, this invention employs a base-plane 32 and flexible mounting material to suspend, or “float,” a non-rigidly mounted touch-plane 12, and uses sensors at each mounting point 22 to measure Z-axis deflection of the floating touch-plane 12. The system adapts existing planes in typical LCD assemblies to implement touch screens. This floating touch detection system provides an accurate, sensitive, compact and low-cost solution. It mitigates XY friction to improve detection of Z-forces. This approach provides latitude in locating sensors 34, allows for additional mid-plane sensors, enables greater accuracy and resolution, and adds features such as “multi-touch” sensitivity.

  • Patent number: 5790752
    Abstract: A highly efficient in-line fluid heater is suitable for heating ultra-pure fluids. Preferably, the heater can be used for heating various fluids, including water, as part of a "wet bench" system used in a wafer processing fabrication facility for the semi-conductor industry. Many other uses for this in-line heater can be envisioned; e.g., water industry, gas processing, and any other use requiring an ultra-clean, highly efficient, non-contact method of raising the temperature of various liquids and gases. The preferred in-line heater utilizes one or more elongated lamps that generate IR radiation as the heating elements. A vessel is provided through which the fluid to be heated is passed. Typically, the vessel is a tube. The tube is preferably a straight single diameter tube, but can be formed in any convenient shape. For ultra-pure fluids, the vessel is formed of an inert or non-reactive material such as quartz. Preferably, the vessel is transparent to the IR radiation generated by the lamps.

  • Patent number: 5767480
    Abstract: Lead frames for integrated circuit packaging are partly fabricated using laser machining to form the very small diameter (0.005 to 0.010 diameter) holes in the lead frames which are later used for epoxy adhesive penetration. A high power Nd:YAG laser provides a laser beam which is moved and focused by a control unit onto the surface of a continuous stock strip in order is to drill the epoxy holes at the desired locations. A similar apparatus, but using a copper vapor laser, can trim very fine pitch (0.005 inch) leads for the lead frames. The remaining parts of the lead frames, which involve larger sized elements, are formed conventionally by using stamping or etching. By controlling the laser operating parameters in terms of laser power, pulse duration and pulse frequency and by control of the location of the laser beam by deflecting galvanometers, very precise cutting and drilling can be accomplished, with accuracy down to 0.00005 inch or less.

  • Patent number: 5486942
    Abstract: A method for mounting a liquid crystal (LCD) display in a portable computer. In one embodiment, the method includes the steps of mounting resilient shock mounts on the edges of the LCD assembly, installing the LCD assembly and shock mounts into a housing, placing a horizontal plate into the housing over the LCD assembly and shock mounts (wherein the horizontal plate covers the shock mounts), and joining the horizontal plate to the housing to form the mounting structure. The shock mounts are compressed during the joining step. The LCD assembly is supported by the forces exerted by the housing and horizontal plate against the shock mounts, and is not directly connected to the housing or the horizontal plate.

  • Patent number: 5315478
    Abstract: A tray for inserting a memory card into a portable computer is described. The tray facilitates complete insertion of the memory card into the computer and optimum electrical interconnection between the memory card and the computer interior. The tray is dimensioned such that it creates a tight seal with the computer housing and provides a coplanar fit with the exterior of the computer housing. No portions of the tray or memory card protrude beyond the computer housing, thereby improving the durability, maneuverability, and compactness of the portable computer. A stop mechanism restrains the tray within the housing when the tray is opened. A memory card can easily be placed thereinto or removed therefrom when the tray is opened and yet the tray does not become separated from the computer and lost.

  • Patent number: 5173597
    Abstract: A data terminal having a reader assembly for reading a data carrier having at least one data track formed thereon and having a predetermined track width. The terminal housing has a card guide slot with a read head mounted next to the slot. The bottom wall section of the card guide slot has an upper surface characterized by a downwardly tapering portion extending from an apex point substantially underneath the data pickup transducer such that a data carrier being swiped through the guide slot is more likely to maintain contact between the bottom of the card and the apex point and thus have sufficiently accurate registration between the pickup transducer and the data stripe for accurate detection of data recorded thereon.

  • Patent number: 5136146
    Abstract: Electronic circuit apparatus in the form of a transaction terminal and including a removable circuit component in the form of a portable memory cartridge. The terminal has a housing with a wall defining an opening for inserting the removable circuit component. A switch is mounted within the housing means substantially in the vicinity of the opening and is connected between a source of electric power and the removable circuit component to control application of power to the removable circuit component. A carrier arrangement carries the removable circuit component between a connected position within the housing and a disconnected position for removal from the housing through the opening. The carrier including a switch actuator and a cooperative interlock means. The switch actuator operates the switch to be ON and simultaneously locks the carrier within the housing. The switch actuator also functions to turn the switch OFF and simultaneously unlock the carrier for removal from the housing.

  • Patent number: 5128524
    Abstract: A data terminal having a card reader assembly for reading a data card having at least a pair of magnetic stripes formed thereon at adjacent ones of at least three defined magnetic data track locations thereon. The terminal includes a read head having two magnetic pickup elements on a front face thereof, the pickup elements being separated by a distance corresponding generally to the distance between the separated magnetic data track locations on the data card. A housing assembly defines a card guide slot adapted to guide a data card during a manual swipe of the card through the card reader assembly. The card guide slot comprises first and second opposite side wall sections and a bottom wall section with one of the side wall sections defining an access aperture for admiting the read head into the card guide slot.

  • Patent number: 5030943
    Abstract: A back light for a liquid crystal display has a self-contained power source and can be attached to the unit having the liquid crystal display when needed in a dark ambient, and removed from the display or not carried by the user of the display when not needed. This portable back light allows the unit with the liquid crystal display to be smaller and lighter in weight than a unit having a built-in back light, and to require a smaller power supply than a unit with a built-in back light. Additinally batteries supplying power to a liquid crystal display unit will last longer. Yet with this portable back light, the user has the convenience of sufficient brightness for viewing the liquid crystal display unit when needed.
