Capacitance Expert in Touch Control Technologies

Case Description:

A capacitance expert in touch control interfaces was needed for a patent infringement suit. The plaintiff produced touch sensors for consumer and industrial products. The defendant was a multinational producer of consumer electronics. Plaintiff alleged the defendant infringed on a patent covering a technique for capacitive charge detection. This technology is widely used for user interface in front panel display and media control applications.

IMS ExpertServices was asked to find an expert in capacitance and capacitive sensor technology to perform forensic engineering and consult on infringement issues. An expert with a Ph.D. in electrical engineering was needed and experience in the application of capacitance in human computer interface, such as touch pads and touch screen user interfaces, was preferred.
