Midé Technology has unveiled SHIVR™, its line of high performance, low-profile piezoelectric haptic actuators - ideal for phones, tablets and other handheld or body worn devices that require communication through the sense of touch.
Currently, magnetic actuators dominate the haptic feedback market; however, piezoelectric haptic actuators are an emerging technology that has many advantages over conventional magnetic actuators.
Piezoelectric haptic actuators are able to provide more than a simple buzz. They can create a richer haptic experience, as they allow single cycles, fast start-up, static deflection, and independent frequency, amplitude, and phase control capabilities – allowing the user to control the feel and intensity of the sensation.
The high performance and broad array of haptic feedback they provide are ideal for any application that requires a low profile feedback component. Additionally, piezos are low power, thin, lightweight, and non-magnetic, making them ideal for specialized bio-medical and industrial communication applications.
Midé’s SHIVR piezoelectric haptic actuators share all of these advantages, plus the benefits of Midé’s Piezo Protection Advantage.
Using flex-rigid-flex manufacturing techniques, high performance piezos are packed into a protective skin with pre-attached leads, making them hermetically sealed, electrically insulated, and robust.
They also have built-in electrical connections, providing the capability of creating multi-touch point arrays and a wide range of termination options - making them easy to integr
