  • Publication number: 20220184659
    Abstract: Piezoelectric user interface arrangement comprises a voltage converter for controllably generating voltage waveforms driving one or more piezoelectric elements. The voltage converter has a control input. A controller is coupled to said control input to control an output voltage of said voltage converter. The controller has one or more scaling inputs. The controller forms said control signals to make said output voltage follow a target waveform as a function of time. The controller is configured to scale said target waveform on the basis of scaling information received through said one or more scaling inputs.
