  • Patent number: 9707662
    Abstract: A polishing pad having a detection window and a method of manufacturing the polishing pad are provided. A dummy detection window is pre-disposed in a mold. A polishing layer precursor is filled into the mold, and then a solidifying process is performed to form a polishing layer, wherein the polishing layer and the dummy detection window are separable completely. The polishing layer and the dummy detection window are separated from each other so as to form a detection opening in the polishing layer. The detection opening can alternatively be formed in a mold having a protrusion structure to replace the dummy detection window. A detection window precursor is filled into the detection opening, and then a solidifying process is performed to form a detection window.

  • Patent number: 9134769
    Abstract: An input module is mounted on a portable electronic device and has a sensing substrate and a cover lens mounted on a top surface of the sensing substrate, a physical switch mounted on and electrically connected to a bottom surface of the sensing substrate, and a flexible bridging board having two opposite short sides respectively protruding from two short sides of the sensing substrate for the two short sides of the flexible bridging board to be mounted on the electronic device. As the two short sides of the input module are mounted on the electronic device and a lever arm between a pressed point to a fixed point of the input module is shortened, a torque applied to the input module is lowered and the input module is not easily deformed.
