Title
(EN) DOME ASSEMBLIES FOR PROVIDING TACTILE FEEDBACK ON DISPLAY WINDOWS AND RELATED PORTABLE ELECTRONIC DEVICES AND METHODS
(FR) ASSEMBLAGE DE DÔMES POUR FOURNIR UN RETOUR TACTILE SUR DES FENÊTRES D'AFFICHAGE ET DISPOSITIFS ÉLECTRONIQUES PORTATIFS ASSOCIÉS ET LEURS PROCÉDÉS
Abstract
(EN) Portable electronic devices are provided including a housing; a display connected to the housing; at least one actuator disposed in the housing and coupled to the display; and at least one mechanical dome associated with the at least one actuator, the at least one mechanical dome configured to implode and/or expand responsive to activation of a button on the display of the portable electronic device to provide a user with tactile feedback associated with the button. Related dome assemblies and methods are also provided.
(FR) L'invention concerne des dispositifs électroniques portatifs comportant un boîtier ; un dispositif d'affichage connecté au boîtier ; au moins un actionneur disposé dans le boîtier et relié à l'afficheur ; et au moins un dôme mécanique associé à l'au moins un actionneur, l'au moins un dôme mécanique étant configuré pour se rétracter et/ou se dilater en réponse à l'activation d'un bouton sur l'afficheur du dispositif électronique portatif afin de fournir à un utilisateur un retour tactile associé au bouton. Des assemblages de dômes et des procédés associés sont également décrits.
