Title (EN) CURSOR CONTROLLER
(FR) UNITE DE COMMANDE DE CURSEUR
Abstract:
(EN) A miniature controller (11) is described for moving a cursor of the like on a computer display. The controller preferably is embodied as a key in a standard keyboard (12). It includes an actuation key (14) which is slidably mounted on an immovable base structure (13) which can be mounted on a printed circuit board (16) within the keyboard to project above the keyboard surface. Its construction is such that it accurately and reliably senses all motion of the key (14) and converts the same to a desired electrical signal for controlling motion of a cursor.
(FR) Une unité de commande miniature (11) déplace un curseur ou autre sur un affichage d'ordinateur. L'unité de commande est matérialisée de préférence sous la forme d'une touche dans un clavier standard (12). Elle comprend une touche d'actionnement (14) qui est montée coulissante sur une structure de base inamovible (13) qui peut être montée sur une plaque à circuit imprimé (16) dans le clavier et faire saillie au dessus de la surface du clavier. Sa construction est telle qu'elle détecte de manière précise et fiable tout mouvement de la touche (14) et convertit ce mouvement en un signal électrique désiré pour commander le mouvement d'un curseur.
