Microsoft Will License Mouse, Keyboard Technologies

Posted by inet - 2006-04-02

Microsoft Corp. on Wednesday said it would license key technologies used in its mouse and keyboard products.
The Redmond, Wash., company said it would make the U2 Internet detection and switching technologies, tilt wheel and magnifier tool broadly available to third-party brands and hardware manufacturers.

Microsoft said it would license the technologies as part of its December 2003 promise to open up its intellectual property portfolio to all interested parties.

The U2 technology enables a peripheral device to be connected to a computer using either a PS2 or USB auto-sensing interface. The tilt wheel is a hardware component that can be tilted from side to side and up and down to maneuver the cursor on a computer screen. The magnifier is a viewing and editing tool in a mouse that enlarges images on the computer screen.
