Title (EN) TACTILE FEEDBACK BY A LONGITUDINALLY MOVED MAGNETIC HAMMER
(FR) RÉTROACTION TACTILE PAR MARTEAU MAGNÉTIQUE À DÉPLACEMENT LONGITUDINAL
Abstract:
(EN) The electronic device generally has a housing; a tactile input interface mounted to the housing; a tactile feedback actuator having a hammer path having two ends, with at least one of said two ends end being provided in the form of a stopper and a coil element fixed relative to the housing, and a magnetic hammer movable between the ends of the hammer path, the magnetic hammer having two opposite ends, each end of the magnetic hammer having a corresponding permanent magnet, the two permanent magnets having opposing polarities, the magnetic hammer being electromagnetically engageable by a magnetic field emitted upon activation of the coil element so as to be longitudinally moved along the hammer path to strike the stopper; and a controller housed within the housing and in communication with the tactile input interface and the tactile feedback actuator.
(FR) La présente invention concerne un dispositif électronique comportant d'une manière générale un boîtier ; une interface d'entrée tactile montée sur le boîtier ; un actionneur de rétroaction tactile comportant un trajet de marteau comportant deux extrémités, au moins l'une desdites deux extrémités présentant la forme d'une butée et d'un élément de bobine fixe par rapport au logement, et un marteau magnétique mobile entre les extrémités du trajet du marteau, le marteau magnétique comportant deux extrémités opposées, chaque extrémité du marteau magnétique comportant un aimant permanent correspondant, les deux aimants permanents comportant des polarités opposées, le marteau magnétique pouvant être engagé électromagnétiquement par un champ magnétique émis lors de l'activation de l'élément de bobine de façon à être déplacé longitudinalement le long du trajet en vue de percuter la butée ; et un dispositif de commande logé dans le boîtier et en communication avec l'interface d'entrée tactile et l'actionneur de rétroaction tactile.
