"We are delighted to offer our customers a new seamless human machine interface working with any materials including metal! On top, Haptic feedback capability will deliver a similar feeling experience than traditional buttons and even more", said Thomas Staudinger, VP Vertical Segments at EBV.
Aito, delivers a next generation experience for touch input and haptic feedback, combining not only the aesthetic benefits of a touch interface through metal, glass, ceramic, wood, plastic, etc. but also delivering a lower cost and more environmentally friendly manufacturing process, and a streamlined, lower cost after-market service offering.
Aito's market leading technology has already been seen in high-end products from Loewe, Russell Hobbs, and Philips.
In addition to today's agreement with EBV, Aito has also announced the launch of the more cost-efficient ATB212 and ATH222 products. Based on the well-known ultra-low power MSP430(TM) microcontroller family from Texas Instruments Incorporated (TI), the ATB212 and ATH222 will spearhead Aito's entry into the low to mid-range market. The new chips' enhanced functionality and lower costs make them ideal for the Home Appliance, Consumer Electronic, and PC Peripheral market.
