Title
(EN) HANDHELD DEVICE HAVING LOCALIZED FORCE FEEDBACK
(FR) DISPOSITIF PORTATIF A RETOUR DE FORCE LOCALISE
Abstract
(EN) [0001] An electronic device (100) for performing intelligent operations includes a housing (112), a manually operable input (118, 122) for providing information to the electronic device, and a material (124) positioned between the manually operable input and the housing. An electromechanical transducer (218, 220) has a mechanical connection consisting of to the manually operable input and an electrical connection for receiving power, wherein substantially all of a mechanical output from the electromechanical transducer is provided to the manually operable input, the material preventing the mechanical output from being transmitted from the manually operable input to the housing. An electric circuit (210) is coupled mechanically to the housing and electronically to the electromechanical transducer for driving the electromechanical transducer in response to the intelligent operations so as to cause the electromechanical transducer to generate a tactile response that can be felt by a user through the manually operable input.
(FR) L'invention a trait à un dispositif électronique (100) réalisant des opérations intelligentes, qui comprend un logement (112), une entrée à commande manuelle (118, 122) destinée à fournir des informations au dispositif électronique, et une matière (124) placée entre l'entrée à commande manuelle et le logement. Un transducteur électromécanique (218, 220) possède une liaison mécanique composée de l'entrée à commande manuelle, et une liaison électrique conçue pour recevoir de l'énergie, sensiblement la totalité d'une sortie mécanique issue du transducteur électromécanique étant fournie à l'entrée à commande manuelle, le matériau empêchant la transmission de la sortie mécanique de l'entrée à commande manuelle au logement. Un circuit électrique (210) est couplé par voie mécanique au logement et par voie électronique au transducteur électromécanique, afin d'entraîner le transducteur électromécanique en réponse aux opérations intelligentes, afin de provoquer la génération, par le transducteur électromécanique, d'une réponse tactile pouvant être sentie par un utilisateur par le biais de l'entrée à commande manuelle.
