High-def piezoelectric film haptic actuator serves next gen user interfaces
KEMET Piezoelectric polymer film haptic actuator, when embedded directly into a product’s surface, acts as haptic skin that provides localized bodily sensations and tactile effects unavailable with other haptic solutions currently in the market. Film actuators enable design engineers to implement advanced haptic solutions with high-performance actuators in a broad spectrum of applications that include remote controls, smart buttons, medical devices, AR/VR, and anything in contact with hands, fingers, head, and lips. The thin (150µm), flexible and conformable devices are made from a proprietary, patent-protected paper-thin material, an electro-active polymer ﬁlm, that enables piezoelectric effects to mimic the sense of touch. Actuators do not shake the entire device.
