  • Patent number: 11119598
    Abstract: A piezoelectric touch device is provided. According to a first aspect, a piezoelectric touch device comprises: a conductive support structure comprising an inseparable section as a bridge separated by a first opening; a piezoelectric element configured to provide a touch sensing and a haptic feedback; connection pads configured to form an electrically connected circuit for the piezoelectric element, wherein the piezoelectric element is electrically connected to the connection pads, and wherein the bridge comprises one of the connection pads and the conductive support structure comprises another of the connection pads; a second opening next to the another connection pad allowing the piezoelectric element to bend freely. The piezoelectric touch device for touch sensing and haptic feedback may be consequently manufactured with an improved manufacturability.

  • Patent number: 9735339
    Abstract: A piezoelectric device comprises at least one element comprising at least one sheet of piezoelectric material. The element is mounted on a circuit board comprising at least one conductive layer having at least one opening. The element is located on the opening and supported by edges of the opening in such a manner that the opening extends laterally beyond the area of the sheet of piezoelectric material. The element is sandwiched between an overlay and the circuit board in such a manner that vibrations of the sheet of piezoelectric material are sufficient to cause vibration of the overlay.
