Synaptics Showcases AI-Enabled Vega Technology

The latest announcement by Synaptics of its Vega Technology trackpad solution shows that major progress is being made by leading trackpad module vendors to drive haptics into laptops. As detailed in our report on Haptics in Computing haptics enabled trackpads are expected to be widely adopted across high end laptops and Synaptics is one of several module vendors driving this market forward with electromagnetic solutions.

Vega is based on “LRA haptic output” with “click anywhere” capability. The current iteration seems to be based on a single LRA but SAR believes that as trackpads increase in area, there will be need to 2 or more synchronised actuators. It seems likely that the first customer might be Dell, based on where Synaptics chose to make the announcement.
