Title: SYSTEM, DEVICE, AND METHOD OF ESTIMATING FORCE APPLIED TO A TOUCH SURFACE
Abstract:
Devices, systems, and methods of determining or estimating a level of force or pressure, that is applied by a user to a touch surface of an electronic device or an electronic system. A touch- screen or touch-pad or other touch-sensitive surface, measures or senses a size of a touch-spot that is engaged by a fingertip of the user; and further tracks and records the changes over time in the size of such touch-spot. Based on analysis of the changes of the size of the touch-spot over time, the touch surface or an associated driver or module determines or estimates the level of force or pressure that was applied by the user, or assigns a touch-force value or class.
