Title (EN) TOUCH PAD ELECTRODE DESIGN
(FR) CONCEPTION D'ÉLECTRODE À BLOC À EFFLEUREMENT
Abstract:
(EN) A multi-touch capacitive touch sensor panel can be created using a substrate with column and row traces formed on separate layers of the substrate. The column and row traces can include sections extending from a central trace and forming a rectilinear trace pattern with sections of the columns and rows interdigitated with one another. The trace pattern can comprise a plurality of pixels arranged continuously across the sensor panel. In this manner, the sensor panel can provide a linear or near linear response to touches across the touch sensor panel.
(FR) Un panneau tactile multipoint capacitif peut être créé à l'aide d'un substrat doté de traces en colonne et en rangée formées sur des couches distinctes du substrat. Les traces en colonne et en rangée peuvent inclure des sections s'étendant à partir d'une trace centrale et formant un motif de trace rectiligne avec des sections de colonnes et de rangées interdigitées les unes avec les autres. Le motif de trace peut comprendre une pluralité de pixels agencés en continu à travers le panneau tactile. De cette manière, le panneau tactile peut fournir une réponse linéaire ou quasi linéaire aux contacts à travers le panneau tactile.
