ALEXANDRIA, Va., Sept. 21 -- Cypress Semiconductor, San Jose, Calif., has been assigned a patent (8,537,119) developed by Edward L. Grivna, Brooklyn Park, Minn., David G. Wright, San Diego, and Ronald H. Sartore, Poway, Calif., for a "feedback mechanism for user detection of reference location on a sensing device."
The abstract of the patent published by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office states: "Devices including an audio mechanism and a processing device coupled to display on-screen buttons on a touch-screen display are described. The processing device is configured to detect a conductive object proximate to the touch-screen display and to determine a position of the conductive object on the touch-screen display. The processing device is configured to provide different sounds via the audio mechanism for different ones of the on-screen buttons when the position of the conductive object is determined within the different on-screen buttons to allow detection of a reference location on the touch-screen display."
The patent application was filed on Feb. 21, 2012 (13/401,683). The full-text of the patent can be found at http://patft.uspto.gov/netacgi/nph-Parser?Sect1=PTO1&Sect2=HITOFF&d=PALL&p=1&u=%2Fnetahtml%2FPTO%2Fsrchnum.htm&r=1&f=G&l=50&s1=8537119.PN.&OS=PN/8537119&RS=PN/8537119
