Abstract

The invention relates to a one-row-key ultra-small keyboard and a method for switching the reuse key values of the keyboard. The keyboard is characterized in that the keyboard adopts the layout of twelve keys in the same row; the keys adopt a capacitance type touch screen; four switchable reuse key values which are a main key value, an upward key value, a downward key value and a number key value are respectively set on each key position. The invention greatly reduces the keyboard size and realizes comfortable and convenient operation by causing one row of keys to play the role of four rows of keys by adopting the method of moving upwards and downwards with fingers and key value switching.

Description

The changing method of mini keyboard of single row push-button and multiplexing key valve thereof

Technical field

The present invention relates to the external equipment of microcomputer and communication field product, more particularly relate to keyboard and control method of keyboard.

Background technology

The fast development of The present computer technology promotes popularizing of computer, and from the desktop computer to the notebook, the trend toward miniaturization that arrives palm PC again is obvious day by day.Development along with the computer product microminiaturization, can be accurately again the conventional keyboard of input information design quickly challenged, because the size dimension of key must adapt with people's finger, the character quantity of keyboard also reduces to the limit through long optimal design simultaneously, and dwindling of keyboard size is subjected to great restriction.The design of present most of microcomputer keyboard is not to dwindle the size of key and sacrifice operation convenience, and reducing bond number exactly, to increase key assignments by frequent blocked operation again be cost to sacrifice operating efficiency; The design that the touch-screen of keyboard and microcomputer unites two into one can reduce volume and but reduce the useful area that shows.Along with the fusion of communication product and computer function, keyboard input problem also becomes increasingly conspicuous.

Summary of the invention

The present invention is for avoiding above-mentioned existing in prior technology deficiency, a kind of size that can keep existing common key-press is provided, can guarantee enough key assignments again, having the mini keyboard of single row push-button of good operation comfort and the changing method of multiplexing key valve thereof.

The present invention deals with problems and adopts following technical scheme:

Mini keyboard of single row push-button of the present invention, its design feature are to adopt 12 buttons colleagues to arrange that button adopts capacitive touch screen, be respectively arranged with on each key position Major key, on key assignments, key assignments and four switchable multiplexing key valves of numerical key down.

The design feature of mini keyboard of single row push-button of the present invention is that also 12 buttons key assignments from left to right that described colleague arranges is respectively:

Button one: Major key is an enter key, and last key assignments is a space bar, and following key assignments is digital switch key, has digital state pilot lamp and digital switch key;

Button two: Major key is letter " A " key, and last key assignments is letter " Q " key, and following key assignments is letter " Z " key, and digital key assignments is a numeral " 1 ";

Button three: Major key is letter " S " key, and last key assignments is letter " W " key, and following key assignments is letter " X " key, and digital key assignments is a numeral " 2 ";

Button four: Major key is letter " D " key, and last key assignments is letter " E " key, and following key assignments is letter " C " key, and digital key assignments is a numeral " 3 ";

Button five: Major key is letter " F " key, and last key assignments is letter " R " key, and following key assignments is letter " V " key, and digital key assignments is a numeral " 4 ";

Button six: Major key is letter " G " key, and last key assignments is letter " T " key, and following key assignments is letter " B " key, and digital key assignments is a numeral " 5 ";

Button seven: Major key is letter " H " key, and last key assignments is letter " Y " key, and following key assignments is letter " N " key, and digital key assignments is a numeral " 6 ";

Button eight: Major key is letter " J " key, and last key assignments is letter " U " key, and following key assignments is the letter ' M ' key, and digital key assignments is a numeral " 7 ";

Button nine: Major key is letter " K " key, and last key assignments is letter " I " key, and following key assignments is symbol " a, " key, and digital key assignments is a numeral " 8 ";

Button ten: Major key is letter " L " key, and last key assignments is letter " O " key, and following key assignments is symbol " a. " key, and digital key assignments is a numeral " 9 ";

Button 11: Major key be symbol "; " key, last key assignments is letter " P " key, and following key assignments is symbol "/" key, and the digital value key is a digital " 0 ";

Button 12: Major key is symbol "+" key, and last key assignments is letter " [" key, following key assignments are letter "] " key, digital value keysym "-".

Between two buttons in the centre of described 12 buttons, be set to foldable structure.

The sound-producing device of being furnished with operation acknowledgement on described keyboard, the operation acknowledgement of Major key, last key assignments and following key assignments has different acoustic tones.

The characteristics of the changing method of multiplexing key valve are for the condenser type linear touchpad in the mini keyboard of single row push-button of the present invention, in the following manner operation:

Click Major key with finger, select Major key to use;

Click simultaneously upwards slip with finger, key assignments uses in the selection;

Click the while to lower slider with finger, selecting down, key assignments uses.

Compared with the prior art, beneficial effect of the present invention is embodied in:

1, the present invention adopts 12 button single files to arrange, has reduced keyboard size greatly; Simultaneously, because the size of its single button has kept suitable with the button of conventional keyboard, so the comfortableness that reduces not influence operation of keyboard.

2, the present invention is owing to adopt the condenser type linear touchpad, goes up the method that sliding, downslide and key assignments switch with finger, makes delegation's button play the effect of four lines key, and therefore total key assignments number also reduces.The multiplexing key valve that removes the numeral row need adopt button to carry out blocked operation, and all other is distributed in click, the click that the alphabetical key assignments of triplex row only need point and goes up sliding and click and glide and realize the multikey Value Operations of each key.The keys arrangement of all letters, numbers and symbols is identical with conventional keyboard, meets the traditional operation custom.

3, the present invention is furnished with the sound-producing device of operation acknowledgement in keyboard, and the operation acknowledgement acoustic tones of Major key and key assignments up and down is different, can effectively avoid maloperation.
