Abstract

The invention relates to an ergonomic operating element wherein the representation of the keyboard information can be rearranged.

Description

description

operating device

The present invention relates to an operating device, in particular a control device that is included in an electronic device such as a cellular phone or a portable computer.

Feature phones typically have a keyboard means through which to enter numbers, letters, or selecting a menu item is performed. Furthermore, such mobile phones that is used for displaying display information, such as menu options, numbers, letters, time, date, communication sequence information or notebook information includes a display device, such as a graphic display.

With newer mobile phones several different services or applications can be availed. It often happens that the different applications and services make differing demands on the operating device. So another display format for example, can serve as input for selecting a phone number from a built-in mobile phone phonebook for entering dates in a calendar.

The invention is therefore based on the object to provide an operating device which is reliable and easy to operate depending on the application of the operating device containing the device, environment, or user preference.

This object is inventively achieved by a Bedieneinrich- tung with features according to claim. 1 Further developments are evident from the dependent claims. According to the invention therefore the display of information by means of a keyboard keypad means about an axis is rotatable.

The invention is based on the idea according to the application or user preference, the appearance of keyboard information by means of a keyboard device by presenting to shape-controlling control means rotatably and thus adapt to the current application or user preference.

The invention is approximately examples described in detail below with reference to preferred execution to the explanation serve the figures listed below:

Figure 1 is a schematic representation of a control device with rotating representation of keyboard information and display information;

Figure 2 shows a schematic diagram of a control device;

Figures 3, 4 and 5 are schematic construction diagrams of embodiments of a control device.

Figure 1 shows an operating device MMI which may be introduced into the housing of an electronic device such as a portable computer or a mobile phone comprising a display ANZ for displaying display information, such as numbers, letters, menu structures or communication sequence information, a Tastaturein- TAS direction to enter numbers, letters, or menu selection decisions. The information entered by the keyboard means TAS generally correspond to those shown on individual elements or keys on the keyboard device or assigned to them (softkeys) Tastaturinfor- mation. The representation of the keyboard information and / or the display information is controlled by a program-controlled microcontroller STE or graphic controller. The rotation of the display of keyboard information and / or display information about an axis which is substantially perpendicular to the plane of the keyboard device or the display is adaptively in dependence on the current position of the device, the current application of the device or adjustable user preference. Depending on the embodiment, the representation of the keyboard information and the representation of the display information is dependent, examples of play by the same angle, or independently rotatable.

2 shows a schematic diagram of a control device MMI is shown. It contains a keyboard device TAS to display the keyboard information and a display device such as a display ANZ for displaying display information which are controlled by a programmable microcontroller STE. A 90 degree rotation of the display of keyboard information and / or Anzeigein- formations may be effected by an exchange of the X-coordinates with the Y-coordinates.

According to a variant, by means of a sensor SEN with two-dimensional location identifier or two sensors, each with one-dimensional location identifier, which are known as such from the microsystems technology, determines the current position of the operating device containing the device and transmitted to the microcontroller STE.

Depending on the embodiment, the information entered by the user corresponding to the keypad information presented by means of the keyboard means TAS, by means of a keyboard matrix MAT which is separately of the keyboard means TAS or as part of the keyboard means TAS gebil- det, or a touch-sensitive foil, a so-called touch -Panel TOU determined and transmitted to the control device STE. Depending on the embodiment, the rotation of the display of keyboard information and / or display information through a detected by the sensors SEN change in position of the operating device MMI-containing device and / or a change of the application that is executed by means of the operating device containing the device and / or by a can user settings are triggered.

After a rotation of the representation of keyboard information, the evaluation of the keyboard matrix MAT or the touch panel TOU is changed accordingly.

Figure 3 shows an operating device MMI, wherein the display and the keyboard ANZ TAS means are at least partially realized by the same display unit POL, such as a light-emitting polymer film.

4 shows an the operating device MMI-containing electronic device GER, such as a mobile phone or a portable computer, said keyboard means TAS and the display ANZ are at least partially realized by a light-emitting polymer film POL, and the determination of the means of the keyboard means TAS correspond takes place sponding keyboard information that is selected by the user through a disposed below the polymer film POL touch panel TOU.

Another embodiment of the invention provides, as shown in Figure 5, instead of the touch panel a TOU disposed under the light emitting keypad mat MAT for determining the user-selected information from keyboard.
