An Inside Look At Boréas Technologies’ Four-Channel Haptic Driver

Semiconductor manufacturer Boréas Technologies has announced the release of the BOS0614, a four-channel, ultra-low latency, Piezo Haptic Driver with integrated sensing. The BOS0614 uses the company’s patented CapDrive technology, which brings high-definition Haptic feedback and integrated force sensing to the smallest devices, creating immersive experiences, while reducing power consumption.

“With the important esports growth we’ve seen in the last few years, phone OEMs are looking at ways to improve the gaming experience on smartphones,” said Simon Chaput, CEO of Boréas. “Our latest technology, the BOS0614, allows OEMs to add gaming trigger buttons that improve the gamer performance. With touch sampling rate support up to 10 kHz, the gamer intent is transmitted to the game in less than 100 us – an improvement of more than 20X in input latency. Furthermore, the BOS0614 delivers low-latency customizable haptic feedback to each button to create the most immersive mobile gaming experience. The BOS0614 enables the kind of experience only the PlayStation 5 console controller was able to create before, but on a smartphone.”

The BOS0614 features include:

  • Four-Channel 60 V CapDrive™ Piezo Driver
  • High-Resolution Force Sensing
  • 10 kSps Force Sampling Rate
  • 100 μs Detection Latency
  • Zero Power Sensing for Wake-up
  • I3C/I2C digital communication interface
  • Deep FIFO
  • Waveform Synthesizer (WFS)
  • Small Solution Footprint

Boréas will provide demos of the BOS0614 during the Sensors Converge conference in San Jose, California, June 27th-29th, booth #1548.
