TDK Unveils Development Kit for Haptic Feedback

TDK presents a development starter kit for fast haptics prototyping. It gives mechanical designers and engineers first impressions of the haptic feedback with PowerHap™ piezo actuators, shows how the mechanical integration works, and provides a reference design, which can be adapted to various applications.

PowerHap piezo actuators offer an unprecedented quality of haptic feedback based on their unrivaled performance of acceleration, force, and response time. Example applications include automotive (e.g., steering wheels, displays, dashboards, buttons), smartphones, displays and tablets, household appliances, ATMs and vending machines, game controllers, VR gloves, industrial equipment, and medical devices.

The PowerHap Starter Kit (ordering code: Z63000Z2910Z01Z73) consists of a seamless button assembly (incl. PowerHap 1204H018V060 and PowerHap 1313H018V120), a round button assembly (incl. PowerHap 1204H018V060), the BOS1901-Kit driver board from Boréas Technologies, additional PowerHap devices (incl. FPC connection cable), USB cable, and a quick start user guide.

The BOS1901-Kit platform in the starter kit is pre-programmed for the seamless button and the round button, so that it is possible to experience sensing and haptics with the PowerHap actuators out-of-the-box. The features of the Boréas platform make it easy to customize and tailor the haptic experience by adjusting the sensing detection parameters and the haptic feedback waveform.
