Title
(EN) KEYBOARD WITH SURFACE FOR COMPUTER MOUSE OPERATION AND MOVEABLE NUMERIC KEYPAD
(FR) CLAVIER DOTE D’UNE SURFACE D’UTILISATION DE SOURIS ET PAVE NUMERIQUE MOBILE
Abstract
(EN)
A keyboard device includes an alphanumeric keyboard and a numeric keypad moveable relative to the keyboard. The keyboard has structure defining a rolling or sliding surface for a mouse and also defining a storage compartment for the numeric keypad below the mouse rolling/sliding surface. In preferred form, the numeric keypad slides between a storage position within the keyboard and an external position in which the numeric keys are accessible. The keyboard and keypad are electrically coupled so that the key state of the keypad is accessible from within the keyboard itself. In preferred form, this permits a single processor within the keyboard to produce a key state signal corresponding to the combined key states of the alphanumeric keyboard and numeric keypad, which can be transmitted to an associated computer for appropriate processing.
(FR)
L’invention porte sur un dispositif de clavier comprenant un clavier alphanumérique et un pavé numérique mobile relié au clavier. Le clavier est doté d’une surface de roulement/glissement pour une souris et d’un compartiment de stockage pour le pavé numérique situé sous la surface de roulement/glissement. En d’autres termes, le pavé numérique glisse entre une position de stockage à l’intérieur du clavier et une position externe où les touches numériques sont accessibles. Le clavier et le pavé sont électriquement couplés de sorte que l’état de touche du pavé est accessible depuis l’intérieur du clavier lui-même. En d’autres termes, cela permet à un processeur unique situé à l’intérieur du clavier de produire un signal d’état de touche correspondant aux états de touche combinés du clavier alphanumérique et du pavé numérique, et qui peut être transmis à un ordinateur en réseau en vue d’un traitement approprié.
