Recently filed patent applications of Synaptics Incorporated in USPTO?

Publication number: US20220011903A1
Application number: 17/486,505

A system and method for capacitive sensing comprises driving a first sensor electrode of a plurality of sensor electrodes with a first sensing signal to acquire a first resulting signal with the first sensor electrode during a period and driving a second sensor electrode of the plurality of sensor electrodes with the first sensing signal to acquire a second resulting signal with the second sensor electrode during the period. Further, a third sensor electrode of the plurality of sensor electrodes is driven with a reference signal during the period. Rotational information for an input object is determined at least partially based on the first resulting signal and the second resulting signal.

Application number: 17/459,860

A display driver comprises gamma processing circuitry, compensation circuitry, and driver circuitry. The gamma processing circuitry is configured to process the image data to generate gamma processed image data. The compensation circuitry is configured to process the gamma-processed image data, based on a ratio of a number of display elements that emit light to a total number of display elements of a display panel, to generate compensated image data. The driver circuitry is configured to drive the display panel based on the compensated image data.
