The invention discloses a printed circuit board (PCB) that suppress vibration or noise caused by connected electronic component such as ceramic capacitors, ferrite magnet coils.
1. The ability to reduce the effects of vibration on print circuit could in certain applications help to improve the mean time to failure leading to improve reliability..
2. Conversely, in contrast to the abstract and subject to frequency response, the ability to vibrate PCB could be useful in situations where haptic feedback is a need feature within the overall product.
3. Cautiously, while it is mentioned within the abstract that the vibrations can be designed to lie outside of the audible hearing rang, the prevention of in-band audible artefacts caused by antialiasing and intermodulation effects for indidvidual designs may prove to be non-trivial. Applications: 1) Vibration reduction in high reliability and critical electronic products., where failure under stress is a challenging requirement, e.g. high acceleration vehicles, 2) the idea could have potential where haptic feedback is needed in certain products., e.g. in smartphones. Companies: 1. Defence / Airspace / Motor racing, 2. Smartphone and interactive consumer device-
