Agilent Sensors Power Laser Mouse
Sep 2004
FREMONT, Calif., Sept. 1 -- Logitech today introduced a new mouse it developed with Agilent Technologies Inc. that uses a laser beam to track its movements. Logitech says it is the first such device to use laser illumination and tracking and provides users with better click-and-point capabilities than traditional LED (light-emitting diode)-based optical mice.

Logitech and Agilent Technologies collaborated on the MX1000 laser cordless mouse.
The MX1000 Laser Cordless Mouse is up to 20 times more responsive and accurate than optical mice, so it can track reliably even on polished or wood-grain surfaces, said Erik Charlton, global product marketing manager at Logitech.

Jason Hartlove, vice president and general manager of Agilent's Sensor Solutions Division, said, "The high-performance laser mouse engine further demonstrates Agilent's commitment to innovation and leadership in the mouse market. Due to lasers' superior tracking ability and the potential for reduced power consumption, we expect this revolutionary technology to replace the LED-based optical mouse sensor."

Agilent pioneered optical sensors for mouse technology and supplies them to optical mouse manufacturers worldwide.

The $79.95 MX100 Laser Corless Mouse mouse is now available in the US and Europe, and Logitech is in the process of gaining other certifications to ship it globally, Charlton said.
