Atmel has integrated haptics capability in to its QTouch capacitive touch controllers to support buttons, sliders and wheels, providing a richer experience with touch and haptics feedback. It uses Immersion’s TouchSense haptics technology and Atmel says its AT42QT1085 (8-touch button) is the first capacitive touch controller in the industry to provide haptics support for 14 unique haptic effects.
Haptics enables design engineers to add tactile feedback to greatly enhance the user experience for applications such as mobile phones, game consoles, navigation devices, cameras, Netbooks, appliances, PCs and more.
Immersion’s TouchSense haptics technology incorporates numerous proprietary mechanical, electrical, software, and firmware technologies to make the user experience with digital devices more efficient, intuitive, safer and more accurate.
