Agilent Technologies Inc. has announced that its laser navigation sensor technology is the key component inside the newest mouse from Logitech. Logitech claims its MX 1000 cordless laser mouse is based on the latest advancements in laser illumination/tracking and digital radio cordless technologies.

According to Agilent, the latest laser illumination and tracking technology, which provides 20 times the surface tracking power of an LED-based optical mouse, enables Logitech's MX 1000 laser mouse to work on surfaces that cause optical mice to falter. Laser-based optical mice can easily track on painted metal, polished wood-grain surfaces, glossy photo paper, translucent plastic, frosted glass and many other previously difficult surfaces. The laser illumination is superior to LED-based illumination because it reveals trackable surface structures the LED light source cannot uncover.

Agilent's laser engine provides Logitech's MX 1000 with image processing power of 5.8 megapixels of surface information per second for enhanced tracking. It also offers 800 counts-per-inch resolution, enabling more accurate cursor control on larger CRTs and flat-panel LCD screens.
