TDK Corporation presents two evaluation kits that provide an initial impression of the varied possibilities of haptic feedback that can be realized with PowerHap™ piezo actuators.
TDK Corporation has extended its portfolio of PowerHap™ piezo actuators for haptic feedback with the new miniature rectangular 0904H014V060 and 1204H018V060 actuators. They have dimensions of only 9 x 3.75 x 1.4 mm and 12 x 4 x 1.8 mm, respectively.
The innovative PowerHap™ piezo actuator with haptic feedback and integrated sensor functionality is now available in three compact types – 0909H011V060, 1313H018V120 and 2626H023V120 – which can achieve an very high acceleration of 2.5 g, 7 g and 35 g, respectively, under a load of 100 grams.
TDK has expanded its portfolio of haptic components with the new ultra-thin PiezoHapt™ actuator featuring a very short response time of just 4 ms. PiezoHapt has a unimorph design consisting of a multilayer piezo element bonded to one side of a vibration plate. With a thickness of a mere 0.35 mm the new haptic actuator is much thinner than conventional eccentric rotary motors and linear resonant actuators, and one of the world's thinnest haptic devices.
