The Surface series is a notebook tablet two-in-one device produced by Microsoft. It has been highly praised. Microsoft has been building the Surface series for quite some time. Microsoft has been continuously optimizing and improving the Surface series. For this series, Microsoft has also applied for many related patents. Only two days ago, it was reported that Microsoft obtained a patent for the improvement of the Surface series. According to the patent, Microsoft may plan to make the keyboard of the next Surface more stable by improving the typing experience while reducing the thickness. On January 22, 2019, the US Trademark Patent Office announced a new patent submitted by Microsoft. Through its perfect combination with Surface Tablet PC, it is committed to making the Surface Pen stylus accessories even better.

It is reported that Microsoft submitted the patent application file entitled "Configurable Communication Protocol for Communication between Stylus Device and Host Device" in 2017, Microsoft wrote: integrated touch Surface Sensors that control the sensor can interact with computing devices with touch screens.

The stylus's rubber head provides similar functionality on touch-screen devices, but when using a fine-tipped pen, the solution's effect is less than satisfactory. In addition, Microsoft stated in the background that there are certain challenges in distinguishing a passive stylus from other fine touch operations (such as nails).

The good news is that Microsoft suspects that it has found a new way to solve the "reliability" problem of stylus: by digitizing and interpreting user commands, the device can know the relative positional change of the stylus device and the sensing surface. . For example, we can determine the exact position of the stylus by capacitive coupling detection between one or more electrodes between the stylus-based electrode and the digitizer.

In addition, the display can be equipped with multiple X and Y directional digitizers, or for receiving from activeThe resistive film signal sent from the stylus electrode. In order to accurately identify the position of the nib, we can also transmit the physical positioning of the electrodes on the writing tip of the stylus device.
