Abstract

Size minimization ofconsumer electronics chal- lenges the design of the user interface to be ergonomically friendly while remaining sensitive to the product's size constraint goals. This optimized keypad design offers large ergonomic key surfaces for the user, while still providing a small cross sec- tion profile to reduce the overall volume of the product.
