발명의 명칭: Mobile terminal and its case with hall IC driving shield magnet
1. A case for a mobile terminal with a Hall IC mounted in the terminal, the case comprising: a front cover portion, a rear cover portion, and a side cover portion, the front, rear, and side cover portions of the case configured to cover an exterior of a mobile terminal which is to be detachably attached to the case; and a shield magnet attached to the front cover portion of the case, the shield magnet including a magnet and a yoke coupled together, wherein the yoke is coupled to the magnet in a manner that a first pole of the magnet is covered or enclosed by the yoke, thus defining a closed pole therewith, and that a second pole of the magnet is at least partially not covered by the yoke to have an open face, thus defining an open pole therewith, wherein a magnetic force in the closed pole of the magnet is reduced due to the yoke, and a magnetic force in the open pole of the magnet is strengthened due to the yoke, wherein the shield magnet is attached to the front cover portion of the case at a position corresponding to the Hall IC of the mobile terminal in a manner that the open pole of the magnet faces the Hall IC, such that when a user opens the front cover portion of the case, the open pole of the magnet facing the Hall IC provides a strengthened magnetic force to its facing Hall IC of the mobile terminal to generate a sensing signal for automatically operating the mobile terminal, and when the user further opens and bends the front cover portion of the case backward to overlap with the rear cover portion of the case, the closed pole of the magnet faces the Hall IC of the mobile terminal, and the magnetic force of the magnet is reduced or shielded by the yoke of the closed pole and not sufficiently applied to the Hall IC, thus preventing a misoperation of the Hall IC.
