Hilltop Technology is suing Apple for patent infringement, claiming that the display screens in the iPad and iPhone use technology covered in one of their patents.
Hilltop Technology’s patent in this case is dscribed as follows:
“A capacitive type touch panel having a transparent substrate having opposite top and bottom surfaces; an array of first and second conductors formed on said top surface of said transparent substrate; an array of second conductors; and a plurality of spaced apart conductive first and second bridging lines.”
Seems like most touch screens use this very same technolog and process.
