Actuators with haptic feedback

Ultra-thin PiezoHapt™ actuator with low driving voltage

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.
