Description

觸控面板及其電子裝置Touch panel and electronic device thereof

本發明係關於一種面板及電子裝置,特別關於一種觸控面板及其電子裝置。The present invention relates to a panel and an electronic device, and more particularly to a touch panel and an electronic device thereof.

各類型的觸控輸入裝置已廣泛應用於電子產品,例如:行動電話與平板電腦多以觸控面板作為輸入裝置,使用者可以方便地將手直接接觸輸入面板的表面來下達指令,或是在觸控面板的表面游移來操作鼠標或是進行手寫文字的輸入。Various types of touch input devices have been widely used in electronic products. For example, mobile phones and tablet computers often use a touch panel as an input device, and the user can conveniently place the hand directly on the surface of the input panel to issue an instruction, or The surface of the touch panel is moved to operate the mouse or input handwritten text.

一般來說,觸控面板可分為電阻式、電容式、超音波式及紅外線式等多種類型,傳統的觸控面板包括二基板、在各基板上形成感測單元、感測線路及絕緣層等,基板通常採用透明材質例如玻璃。感測單元係感測使用者的觸控輸入,感測線路係連接感測單元以將從感測單元偵測到的輸入傳輸至處理電路。感測單元通常以透明導電材料來製作,感測線路位於基板的邊緣通常以金屬材料來製作。In general, the touch panel can be classified into a resistive type, a capacitive type, an ultrasonic type, and an infrared type. The conventional touch panel includes two substrates, and a sensing unit, a sensing line, and an insulating layer are formed on each substrate. Etc., the substrate is usually made of a transparent material such as glass. The sensing unit senses the user's touch input, and the sensing circuit is connected to the sensing unit to transmit the input detected from the sensing unit to the processing circuit. The sensing unit is typically fabricated from a transparent conductive material, and the sensing circuitry is located at the edge of the substrate and is typically fabricated from a metallic material.

二個基板以黏接用材料在各基板邊緣黏合,由於黏接用材料一般為透光材料,感測線路為非透光材料,故黏接用材料無法在視覺上遮住絕緣層及感測線路的圖案,使用者從基板側觀看觸控面板時仍會看到絕緣層及感測線路的圖案。為解決此視覺不美觀的問題,傳統技術需在殼體額外加上邊框,當觸控面板組裝於殼體內時,利用邊框將 觸控面板不欲為人觀看到的部份(例如絕緣層及感測線路)遮住,這也造成產品的殼體必須保留額外邊框的缺點。另一方面,亦有傳統做法是在絕緣層及感測線路上額外形成不透光的材料,藉以遮蔽絕緣層及感測線路使其在視覺上不外露。The two substrates are adhered to the edge of each substrate by the bonding material. Since the bonding material is generally a light transmissive material and the sensing line is a non-transparent material, the bonding material cannot visually cover the insulating layer and the sensing line. The pattern of the road, when the user views the touch panel from the substrate side, still sees the pattern of the insulating layer and the sensing line. In order to solve this visually unsightly problem, the conventional technology requires an additional frame on the housing. When the touch panel is assembled in the housing, the border is used. The touch panel does not want to be covered by people (such as insulation and sensing lines), which also causes the product housing to have the disadvantage of retaining additional frames. On the other hand, there is a conventional practice of additionally forming an opaque material on the insulating layer and the sensing line, thereby shielding the insulating layer and the sensing line from being visually exposed.

另外,與觸控面板組裝而成的電子裝置若要提供無線功能,例如無線通話或是無線數據傳輸,其必須額外設置無線處理電路及天線等元件。為了讓天線具有較好的收發能力,通常天線是外掛於或貼附內藏於電子裝置的機構元件,然而,這樣的設置方式,天線仍可能受機構元件的干擾而導致訊號衰減。而且,天線並未有效的整合於電子裝置,使得供一般消費者購買使用的電子裝置產品其體積仍有再縮小的空間。In addition, if an electronic device assembled with a touch panel is to provide a wireless function, such as a wireless call or wireless data transmission, it must additionally provide components such as a wireless processing circuit and an antenna. In order to make the antenna have better transceiving capability, the antenna is usually attached or attached to the mechanical components embedded in the electronic device. However, in such a manner, the antenna may still be interfered by the mechanical components to cause signal attenuation. Moreover, the antenna is not effectively integrated into the electronic device, so that the electronic device product for purchase by the general consumer still has a small space for further reduction.

因此,如何提供一種觸控面板及其電子裝置,能整合天線又能避免天線視覺上露出,已成為一項重要的課題。Therefore, how to provide a touch panel and an electronic device thereof, which can integrate the antenna and avoid the visual exposure of the antenna has become an important issue.

As shown in FIG. 2F, since the first substrate 11 is hollowed out on the side for the antenna element 12 to be embedded, the antenna line pin 10 can be directly exposed to the right side of the antenna element 12, and the antenna element can be directly connected. The device 12 is coupled to, for example, a radio frequency module. As shown in FIG. 2G, of course, in the structure similar to that shown in FIG. 2F, the antenna line pin 10 can also directly couple the antenna element 12 to, for example, the radio frequency module through the through hole of the first substrate 11.

In addition, the antenna element 12 and the antenna signal line 18 have an interval of at least 0.5 mm or more to avoid mutual interference. Further, the antenna element 12 may have a thickness of 10 um to 30 um and may be disposed at any position of the peripheral region P, only considering whether it can be shielded by the decorative layer 13, and the others are not limited. Therefore, the number of antenna elements 12 and their corresponding contacts and lines is of course not limited to one set, and the requirements for visual signal transmission may be two, three or more.
