Title: CAPACITIVE TOUCH SENSOR HAVING PSEUDO JUMPERS
Abstract:
Electrode matrices for capacitive touch-sensing are provided. An electrode matrix may include a plurality of electrodes separated by gaps. Each electrode may include a plurality of spaced apart conductors electrically connected at opposed ends by respective tie structures. The conductors of each electrode may be electrically bridged at intervals by a plurality of jumpers. The electrode matrix may further include a plurality of pseudo jumpers positioned within the gaps and configured to be non-conductive across their entire lengths.
