Ultrahaptics enters the EBVchips Program

March 17, 2017 // By Julien Happich
Haptic technology provider Ultrahaptics has entered an agreement with EBV Elektronik for the company to distribute and market Ultrahaptics’ TOUCH development kit (UHDK5) and related microprocessors under its EBVchips program.

The UHDK5 development platform uses ultrasound to provide touch feedback in mid-air, enabling users to ‘feel’ virtual buttons, switches, dials and other objects in mid-air. The TOUCH Development Kit (UHDK5) was created with the support of the European Commission Horizon 2020 programme, it offers designers and developers a complete hardware and software package with an architecture that can be readily embedded in product designs, from prototypes right through to volume production.
"This cooperation agreement is the next step for us, giving customers easy access to the development kit to be able to quickly build prototypes. Customisation options come as part of the software along with a library of pre-programmed sensations," said Steve Cliffe, CEO at Ultrahaptics. "EBVchips offers us the opportunity to scale the solution to the needs of the customer, strengthening our commitment to provide an easy-to-use and easy-to-buy solution to our customer base."
