- FusionPad is a thin haptic-force trackpad for laptops and notebooks.
- The FusionPad design allows for a larger battery and greater airflow which improves the overall performance of a laptop.
Peratech and Innovobot have jointly developed the FusionPad, a haptic force-enhanced trackpad that improves the laptop user experience. The touchpad also offers a wide range of functions such as muti-finger touch support, and fast, accurate haptic feedback to optimize control. In addition, it can also eliminate the wrong touch while typing. All of these features make typing and navigating laptops with touchpads even better. Thus, improving productivity and ease of use for the user.
The FusionPad has a thin profile that requires a small space and therefore allows for a larger battery and greater airflow to cool the processors and improve overall performance. It is integration ready and compatible with product engineering tools. It is also process and technology ready for AVL-approved supply chains.
FusionPad combines Peratech’s patented Quantum Tunneling Composites technology and Innovobot Labs’ applied haptics design. It also includes Peratech’s sensing matrix composed of hundreds of individual force sensors, which can detect different levels of applied pressure. This helps to identify the same intensity in the object profile. For example FusionPad can distinguish between a finger and a pen without conflicts. The company also claims that the haptic output developed by Innovobot Labs offers an extended high-fidelity frequency range of 150 Hz to 350 Hz, as opposed to the limited single frequency currently available on the market.
“The tactile-feedback loop between good, consistent feel and more than one-click haptics, drives the new level of expanded functionality that FusionPad makes available to OEMs and their end-users. user,” said Jon Stark, CEO of Peratech. “What’s more, our firmware intelligence enables a design philosophy that uses ordinary features in unique ways, making FusionPad more affordable to the broader OEM market.”
