Boréas Technologies’ Piezo Driver Chip Enables Haptic Feedback in Automotive HMIs

January 7, 2020 Alix Paultre

Boréas Technologies, developer of ultra-low-power haptic technologies, demonstrated the BOS1211, presented as the first low-power high-voltage piezoelectric driver integrated circuit (IC) at CES 2020. Enabling high-definition (HD) haptic feedback in automotive human machine interfaces (HMIs), the devices target automotive apps like infotainment screens and touch-sensitive steering wheels.

Designed to support TDK’s family of 120V PowerHa™ piezo actuators, Boréas’ BOS1211 aids in replacing buttons and touchpads with haptic-feedback solutions. More than 52.8 million automotive touch panels will be on the market by 2020, according to IHS Markit Center Stack Display Production Forecast, and that number is growing by 4.6% annually. 

TDK will showcase its lineup of 120V PowerHap piezo haptic actuators during CES 2020, January 7-10, 2020 at the TDK Electronics booth (LVCC, Central Hall, # 11448). Boréas will help to drive TDK’s haptic actuators into automotive applications and is available for demonstrations by appointment only at the Boréas booth (LVCC, South Hall 4, #35824), as well as at the TDK booth.
