Title (EN) CHARACTER INPUT APPARATUS
(FR) APPAREIL POUR SAISIE DE CARACTÈRES
(KO) 문자 입력 장치
Abstract:
(EN) One embodiment of the present invention relates to a character input apparatus. Said embodiment of the present invention provides a character input apparatus comprising: a key arrangement unit which arranges 12 basic keys into 4 lines and 3 rows, and arranges extension keys for every space between the basic keys; a first key allocation unit which allocates respective characters to 9 basic keys from first to third lines and to each of extension keys; a second key allocation unit which allocates specific functions to three basic keys of the fourth line; a first key processing unit which processes the allocated characters as input characters when a keystroke occurs from the 9 basic keys of first to third lines, compares the difference between the input times of two sequential keystrokes with a preset threshold value when two sequential keystrokes occur from two adjacent basic keys, and processes the character allocated to the extension key arranged between two adjacent basic keys as an input character on the basis of the result of the comparison; and a second key processing unit which performs the function allocated thereto upon the occurrence of a keystroke from three basic keys of the fourth line. Said embodiment of the present invention enables a convenient and rapid key input method which is appropriate for a keypad having 12 keys arranged into 4 lines and 3 rows in small electronic devices such as portable phones, remote controls, general telephones, etc.
(FR) Un mode de réalisation de la présente invention concerne un appareil pour saisie de caractères. Ce mode de réalisation propose un appareil pour saisie de caractères qui comprend, un module d'organisation de touches, un premier module d'affectation des touches, un second module d'affectation des touches, un premier module de traitement des touches, et un second module de traitement des touches. Le module d'organisation des touches organise 12 touches de base en 4 lignes et 3 rangées, et organise les touches d'extension de chaque espace entre les touches de base. Le premier module d'affectation des touches affecte les différents caractères aux 9 touches de base de la première à la troisième ligne et aux touches d'extension. Le second module d'affectation des touches affecte des fonctions spécifiques aux trois touches de base de la quatrième ligne. Le premier module de traitement des touches a pour fonction, d'une part de traiter les caractères affectés en tant que caractères d'entrée lorsque se produit un appui de touche partant des 9 touches de base de la première à la troisième ligne, d'autre part de comparer à une valeur de seuil prédéfinie la différence entre les chronologies d'entrée de deux appuis de touches consécutifs quand les deux appuis de touches consécutifs se produisent à partir de deux touches de base adjacentes, et enfin de traiter en tant que caractère d'entrée le caractère affecté à la touche d'extension organisée entre deux touches de base adjacentes en fonction du résultat de la comparaison. Le second module de traitement des touches exécute la fonction qui y a été affectée lorsque se produit un appui de touche provenant des trois touches de base de la quatrième ligne. Les modes de réalisation de la présente invention permettent la mise en œuvre commode et rapide d'un procédé de saisie par touches qui convient au clavier de 12 touches organisées en 4 lignes et 3 rangées dans les petits appareils électroniques tels que les téléphones portables, les télécommandes, les téléphones domestiques, etc.
(KO) 본 발명의 실시예는 문자 입력 장치에 관한 것이다. 본 발명의 실시예는, 12개의 기본 키는 4행 3열로 배열하고, 각 기본 키 사이마다 확장키를 배열하는 키 배열부; 1행 내지 3행까지의 9개의 기본 키와 각 확장키에 문자를 각각 할당하는 제 1 키 할당부; 4행의 3개의 기본 키에 특정 기능을 할당하는 제 2 키 할당부; 1행 내지 3행까지의 9개의 기본 키로부터 키 입력이 발생하면 할당된 해당 문자를 입력 문자로서 처리하고, 이웃한 2개의 기본 키로부터 연속하는 2개의 키 입력이 발생하면 연속하는 2개의 키 입력에 대한 입력 시간의 차이값 및 미리 설정된 임계값을 비교하여, 비교의 결과를 토대로 이웃한 2개의 기본 키의 사이에 배열된 확장키에 할당된 문자를 입력 문자로서 처리하는 제 1 키 처리부; 및 4행의 3개의 기본 키로부터 키 입력이 발생하면 할당된 해당 기능을 수행하는 제 2 키 처리부를 포함하는 것을 특징으로 하는 문자 입력 장치를 제공한다. 본 발명의 실시예에 의하면, 휴대폰, 리모컨, 일반 전화기 등의 소형 전자 장치에서의 4행 3열의 12개의 키로 구성된 자판에 적합하고 편리하며 신속한 문자 입력 방법을 제공하는 효과가 있다.
