Title (EN) TOUCH SENSORS WITH TACTILE FEEDBACK
(FR) CAPTEURS TACTILES A RETOUR TACTILE
Abstract: front page image
(EN)Touch sensors with one or more piezoelectric elements and devices containing such touch sensors are presented. The touch sensor contains keys that are independently actuated. Contact with a key provides tactile feedback through the piezoelectric element to the user. Each key provides an individual tactile feedback pattern that is dependent on the particular key contacted as well as the function of the key at the time of contact. Actuation of the key provides a different tactile feedback pattern. The piezoelectric element is bonded directly to a printed circuit board, on which electronic components are also mounted.
(FR)L'invention concerne des capteurs tactiles pourvus d'au moins un élément piézo-électrique, ainsi que des dispositifs les contenant. Le capteur tactile selon l'invention comporte des touches qui sont activées indépendamment. Le contact avec une touche fournit à l'utilisateur un retour tactile par l'intermédiaire de l'élément piézo-électrique. Chaque touche est dotée d'un mode de retour tactile individuel qui dépend de la touche soumise au contact et de la fonction de la touche au moment du contact. L'activation de chaque touche déclenche un mode de retour tactile différent. L'élément piézo-électrique est collé directement sur une carte de circuits imprimés sur laquelle sont également montés des composant électroniques.
