Title (EN) KEYLESS KEYBOARD WITH FORCE SENSING AND HAPTIC FEEDBACK
(FR) CLAVIER SANS CLÉ AVEC DÉTECTION DE FORCE ET RÉTROACTION HAPTIQUE
Abstract:
(EN) An input device for an electronic device includes an enclosure and a top member defining an input surface having multiple differentiated input regions. The input device further includes a first force sensing system associated with a first area of the top member and including a first group of the differentiated input regions, and a second force sensing system associated with a second area of the top member and including a second group of the differentiated input regions. The input device further includes a touch sensing system configured to determine which input region from the first group of the differentiated input regions corresponds to the first force input and to determine which input region from the second group of the differentiated input regions corresponds to the second force input.
(FR) Dispositif de saisie pour un dispositif électronique comprenant une enceinte et un élément supérieur définissant une surface de saisie ayant de multiples régions de saisie différenciées. Le dispositif de saisie comprend en outre un premier système de détection de force associé à une première zone de l'élément supérieur et comprenant un premier groupe des régions de saisie différenciées, et un second système de détection de force associé à une seconde zone de l'élément supérieur et comprenant un second groupe des régions de saisie différenciées. Le dispositif de saisie comprend en outre un système de détection tactile configuré pour déterminer quelle région de saisie à partir du premier groupe des régions de saisie différenciées correspond à la première saisie de force et pour déterminer quelle région de saisie à partir du second groupe des régions de saisie différenciées correspond à la seconde saisie de force.
