Description

Touch sensing device and parallel type sensing circuit

Technical field

The present invention relates to touch-control sensing, particularly to a kind of parallel type being applicable to contact panel (concurrent) sensing circuit.

Background technology

Touch sensing device can be in conjunction with display to form touch control display, and it combines touch technology with aobvious Show technology so that user directly can carry out interaction with shown object.Capacitance type touch control sensing is numerous The one of which of different touch-control sensing technology.

Capacitive touch sensing device comprises conductor (such as tin indium oxide) and insulator (such as glass). When the surface of human body (it is as another conductor) touch capacitor type touch sensing device, institute's shape can be changed The electrostatic field become, its reaction, in the change of capacitance, can determine touch position according to this.

Mutual capacitance (mutual-capacitance) touch sensing device is the one of capacitive touch sensing device Kind.Figure 1A shows the schematic diagram of mutual capacitance touch sensing device 100, and it is by row electrode and row electrode institute Composition, such as the 3x5 array illustrated in Figure 1A.Signal is driven to impose on transmission end TX1~TX3, and in Receiving terminal RX1~RX5 collects sensing signal.

Self-capacitance (self-capacitance) touch sensing device is another kind of capacitive touch sensing device. Figure 1B shows the schematic diagram of self-capacitance touch sensing device 102, and it is made up of with row electrode row electrode, Such as 3x5 array illustrated in Figure 1B.Being different from mutual capacitance touch sensing device 100, self-capacitance touches Control sensing device 102 only has receiving terminal RX11~RX15 and RX21~RX23, uses collection sensing Signal.

Either mutual capacitance touch sensing device 100 or self-capacitance touch sensing device 102, each Receiving terminal (RX) couples a reception circuit (or receiving unit) 11 accordingly, and such as simulation turns to numeral Parallel operation (ADC).Framework as shown in figure 1 a or figure 1b, receives the number of circuit 11 equal to receiving terminal Number.Therefore, these frameworks need big circuit area and cost, especially for large touch sense Survey device.The small size touch sensing device that space or power supply are restricted, Figure 1A or Figure 1B Shown framework has defect equally.

In order to improve aforementioned drawback, Fig. 2 A and Fig. 2 B proposes a kind of improved framework, and its touch-control sensing fills Put 200 number numbers less than receiving terminal (RX) receiving circuit 11 used.First, such as figure First stage shown in 2A, receive circuit 11 and receive (and process) corresponding to part receiving terminal (such as RX1~RX3) sensing signal.Then, second stage as shown in Figure 2 B, identical reception circuit 11 receive (and process) sensing signal corresponding to remaining receiving terminal (such as RX4~RX6).Due to The reception circuit 11 of Fig. 2 A and Fig. 2 B uses timesharing (time-sharing) mode, therefore its framework in When processing all sensing signals, time delay can be caused.This defect is for embedded (in-cell) touch-control Display can be even more serious, because what its display and touch-control sensing sequentially performed, therefore touch-control sensing has Effect time more general touch sensing device (such as Figure 1A or Figure 1B those shown) comes short.

In view of conventional touch sense device has the shortcoming of big circuit area or long delay, therefore need proposition badly The touch sensing device of a kind of novelty, in order to reduce circuit area and will not produce long delay.

Summary of the invention

In view of above-mentioned, one of purpose of the embodiment of the present invention is to propose a kind of to be applicable to contact panel also Line sensing circuit, in order to save circuit area and cost, will not produce again delay.

According to embodiments of the present invention, touch sensing device comprises contact panel, multiple and circuit and multiple connects Receive circuit.Contact panel comprises row electrode and row electrode.Each and circuit has multiple input, in order to Receive multiple sensing signals that the correspondingly received end of contact panel is provided, each and these inputs of circuit End adds up or deducts these sensing signals, thus produces with signal in the corresponding output end with circuit.These Receive circuit and be respectively coupled to the outfan of these and circuit, in order to process and signal, thus produce respectively And value, determine touch position according to this.
