Claim of US Patent No. 10,338,751

1. A touch-control pattern structure, comprising: a capacitive sensing layer comprising:a first electrode group comprising a first electrode cell and a second electrode cell;
a first wire extending in a first direction from said first electrode cell to said second electrode cell; and
a second electrode group comprising a third electrode cell and a fourth electrode cell;
an insulating layer located over said first wire;
a second wire located over said insulating layer and extending in a second direction from said third electrode cell to said fourth electrode cell, wherein
said insulating layer is located between said first wire and said second wire at an intersection of said first wire and said second wire,
said second wire comprises a sloped sidewall; and a reinforcing layer located over said second wire and in contact with said sloped sidewall of a second wire, wherein:
said reinforcing layer is made of a conductive material,
said reinforcing layer comprises one or more reinforcing elements, and
each of said reinforcing elements crosses no more than one edge of said insulating layer at said intersection of said first wire and said second wire,wherein, a first portion of said second wire extends from a top of said insulating layer to a top of said third electrode cell,a first reinforcing element of said one or more reinforcing elements and a second reinforcing element of said one or more reinforcing elements are in contact with said first portion of said second wire, said first reinforcing clement is spaced apart from said second reinforcing element in said first direction, andwherein: said intersection comprises a center region and edge regions, andsaid one or more reinforcing elements are located only in said edge regions.
