Title
(EN) HUMAN-COMPUTER INTERFACE SYSTEM
(FR) SYSTÈME D'INTERFACE HOMME-MACHINE
Abstract
(EN) One variation of a system includes a substrate including: a first layer including a first spiral trace coiled in a first direction; a second layer arranged below the first layer and including a second spiral trace coiled in a second direction and cooperating with the first spiral trace to form a multi-layer inductor; and a sensor layer including an array of drive and sense electrode pairs. The system also includes: a cover layer arranged over the substrate and defining a touch sensor surface; and a first magnetic element arranged below the substrate and defining a first polarity facing the multi-layer inductor. The system further includes a controller configured to drive an oscillating voltage across the multi-layer inductor to oscillate the substrate in response to detecting an input on the touch sensor surface based on electrical values from the set of drive and sense electrode pairs.
(FR) Une variante d'un système comprend un substrat comprenant : une première couche comprenant un premier ruban en spirale enroulé dans un premier sens ; une seconde couche disposée au-dessous de la première couche et comprenant un second ruban en spirale enroulé dans un second sens et coopérant avec le premier ruban en spirale pour former une inductance multicouche ; et une couche de capteur comprenant un ensemble de paires d'électrodes d'attaque et de détection. Le système comprend également : une couche de recouvrement disposée sur le substrat et définissant une surface de capteur tactile ; et un premier élément magnétique disposé sous le substrat et définissant une première polarité faisant face à l'inductance multicouche. Le système comprend en outre un dispositif de commande configuré pour appliquer une tension oscillante aux bornes de l'inductance multicouche afin de faire osciller le substrat en réponse à la détection d'une entrée sur la surface de capteur tactile sur la base de valeurs électriques provenant de l'ensemble de paires d'électrodes d'attaque et de détection.
