TDK Corp. has launched a development starter kit for haptics prototyping allowing mechanical and design engineers first impressions of piezo actuators.

Called BOS1901-Kit platform, the PowerHap piezo actuators offer haptic feedback that provide acceleration, force and response time. The starter kit consists of a button assembly, a round button assembly, BOS1901-Kit driver board from Boreas Technologies, USB cable, additional PowerHap devices and more.

The starter kit can be used to create applications in sectors such as:

  • Automotive
  • Smartphones
  • Displays and tablets
  • Household appliances
  • ATMs
  • Vending machines
  • Game controllers
  • VR gloves
  • Industrial equipment
  • Medical devices

The kit makes it possible to experience sensing and haptics with the PowerHap actuators out-of-the-box, TDK said. It is also highly customizable and engineers can tailor the haptic experience by adjusting the sensing direction parameters.
