RS Components signs global distribution agreement for HiWave Technologies audio and haptic devices
July 03, 2012 // Julien Happich
HiWave Technologies and RS Components have announced a worldwide distribution agreement whereby RS will stock HiWave's range of audio exciters, haptic touch feedback actuators, balanced mode radiator (BMR) speaker drivers and energy efficient amplifier modules.
Stock availability is anticipated in August 2012 for customers in Europe, the Middle East and Africa; this will subsequently be extended to the rest of the world. Fred Knowles, Head of Product Management - Electronics at RS Components said: "HiWave is renowned for its innovative technology, which is transforming the design of many industrial and consumer electronic products. By partnering with HiWave we are underlining our commitment to supply our engineering community with advanced technologies and components that help them differentiate their designs."
HiWave is a leader in bending-wave haptic feedback devices, which accurately simulate the feeling of a mechanical button press, can deliver the response to anywhere on a panel or touch screen or be programmed to give a specific response at a specific set of co-ordinates. The same devices can deliver an audio response from a flat panel to replace the need for additional loud speakers.
