Mountain View, CA – FlatFrog, a leading provider of interactive display solutions, is pleased to announce that the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) has issued a notice of allowance on two new FlatFrog patent applications in the US. These applications, US 17/020,489 and US 17/671,728, cover the low contact detection height (CDH) technology for IR type touchscreens. These two allowed patents will form a key part of the FlatFrog patent portfolio, and will join litigated FlatFrog patents to strengthen our technology protection for our InGlass™ customers. This is a testament to our commitment to innovation and our dedication to providing our customers with the best interactive display solutions on the market.
FlatFrog’s new patents will cover its InGlass™ technology and the new allowed applications are focused on the size and competitive features of large screen touch devices. The technology provides the lowest contact detection height in the industry and allows multiple users to digitally write on touch screens with a passive pen or finger without the frustrating latency of conventional touch screens. This technology creates a writing experience as natural as pen on paper and supports intuitive motions such as erasing with your finger or hand. Because of its advantages over conventional touch screen technologies, InGlass™ has been adopted by the world’s leading touch screen display companies, including Dell, Samsung, Sharp,NEC, Smart, Avocor and others.
FlatFrog has invested heavily in the development of InGlass™ and is determined to protect its intellectual property rights in the face of infringement. The company's investments into InGlass™ and related touchscreen technologies are safeguarded by more than 90 patents worldwide and over 50 pending patent families.
