Cirque is a wholly-owned subsidiary of electro-mechanical components supplier Alps Alpine.
Brian Monson, president, Cirque, said Boreas provides a solution for uniform force sensing and driving haptics in one piezo chip. The chip meets Cirque’s requirements for reliability, consistency, low power and small size.
Boréas was founded in 2016 in Bromont, Québec. Its proprietary CapDrive technology platform – on which the company’s ICs are based – is suitable for resource-constrained devices such as smartwatches, fitness trackers, smartphones and gaming phones, game controllers, and Internet of Things (IoT) devices, Boreas said.
