Think: rapid customization of compelling tactile experiences for low-power devices
Boréas Technologies launched Boréas HapticStudio, an intuitive software development kit (SDK) that lets designers develop customized haptic effects for easy implementation on Boréas CapDrive™ semiconductors. CapDrive is Boréas’ family of tiny, ultra-low-power piezo driver integrated circuits (ICs) that deliver high-resolution sensing and haptic effects to smartphones, PC trackpads, automotive cabins, and virtual reality (VR) peripherals.
The company also announced general availability of its CapDrive ultra-low-power piezo driver with advanced sensing, the BOS1921. The BOS1921 is the first CapDrive IC to seamlessly support Boréas HapticStudio, speeding the creation of satisfying, personalized experiences that emulate realistic touch.
“Boréas HapticStudio is our first GUI tool to let designers explore the many advantages of piezo haptic effects without requiring homegrown software coding—significantly accelerating development time,” said Simon Chaput, founder & CEO, Boréas Technologies.
“Unlike older non-piezo technologies that restrict the designer’s ability to customize users’ tactile experiences, Boréas HapticStudio frees designers to adjust vibration, response speed, and touch intensity. It also registers changes immediately, allowing designers to test drive different haptic effects before integrating them on end-user devices, such as smartphones, wearables, and video game controllers.”
