Leadis Technology, Inc. (Leadis) has signed an agreement with Immersion Corporation (Immersion) to implement high-quality haptic feedback in capacitive touch enabled devices ranging from portable devices, for instance mobile phones and personal navigation devices, to non-mobile products, such as multi-function printers and white goods.

As per the agreement, Leadis receives a license for Immersion’s proprietary TouchSense Player and Haptics Effect Library which will broaden to customers purchasing Leadis’ haptic driver integrated capacitive touch controllers. Uniting software and hardware into a single offering allows end-product manufacturers to quickly incorporate a standard library of tactile feedback effects for capacitive touch inputs. Elective professional service packages will also be offered for customers desiring custom effects or optimization for non-standard implementations.

We believe this agreement will provide a valuable channel to extend Immersion’s reach and accelerate adoption of our proprietary touch feedback technology, said Craig Vachon, senior vice president and general manager of Immersion’s Touch line of business. Leadis is the first touch controller manufacturer to integrate a TouchSense(R)-certified haptic driver, and we’re pleased to extend our relationship with this new agreement.
