In other words, FIG. 4 (b), the luminance value as shown in FIG. 3 (b) represents a temporal change in the vibration intensity of the housing 10 in the case of time varying. Incidentally, the vibration frequency shown in FIG. 4 (b) are those determined by the vibration element to form a vibration motor.

That is, the vibration control unit 130, a vibration intensity proportional to the luminance value (vibration intensity multiplied by a predetermined coefficient to the luminance value) to vibrate the vibration motor (vibrating portion 140). Incidentally, according to the pressure (contact area) at the time of contact may be changed the coefficient. For example, higher pressures may increase the degree of amplification. Further, according to the moving speed of the touch position may be changed the coefficient.

Subsequently, (specifically the display screen) housing 10 will be described vibration in the case of using a linear vibrator as a vibration unit 140. Figure 6 is an example of time change of the driving waveform (input waveform) and vibration waveform. Figure 7 is a cross-sectional view of the housing 10 for illustrating the arrangement position of the linear vibrator. Incidentally, the linear vibrator, a vibration device for inputting a vibration frequency itself generates vibrations strength proportional to the input voltage.

6 (a) is a top straight line L shown in FIG. 2, at a constant rate over a m sec, when the traced with a finger, the driving waveform (vibration element of the linear vibrator (vibration portion 140) shown in FIG. 7 it represents the time variation of the driving waveform). That is, FIG. 6 (a), the luminance value as shown in FIG. 3 (b) represents the time variation of the driving waveform when time varying. According to FIG. 6 (a), the amplitude of the driving waveform is changed according to the change of the luminance value. The driving waveforms shown in FIG. 6 (a), in which the vibration frequency (as determined by the vibration element to form a linear vibrator) for example AM ​​modulation.

6 (b) is a top straight line L shown in FIG. 2, at a constant rate over a m sec, when the traced with a finger, the vibration of the housing 10 by the linear vibrator (vibration portion 140) shown in FIG. 7 it represents the time variation of the waveform. That is, FIG. 6 (b), the luminance value as shown in FIG. 3 (b) represents a temporal change in the vibration intensity of the housing 10 in the case of time varying.

As shown in FIG. 6 (b), the vibration part 140, even when using a linear vibrator, similarly to the case of using a vibration motor, the vibration control unit 130, a vibration intensity proportional to the luminance values, the linear vibrator (vibration portion 140) to vibrate. Even when using a linear vibrator, similarly to the case of using a vibration motor, according to the pressure at the time of contact (contact area), it may be changed proportional coefficient in accordance with the movement speed of the contact position, proportional coefficient it may be changed.

Subsequently, when the electronic device 1 comprises a vibrating portion 140 (e.g., a vibration motor, a linear vibrator) instead of, the position moving unit that moves in the thickness direction of the display unit 110 a display screen (a voice coil motor (VCM)) It will be described. In the case of using the voice coil motor, vibration control information position movement control unit (not shown) for generating is information for generating the input voltage for driving the voice coil motor, or the input voltage (signal).

Figure 8 is an example of time variation of the input voltage and the vibration waveform. Figure 9 is a cross-sectional view of the housing 10 for describing the position of the voice coil motor. Incidentally, the voice coil motor is a vibrating element to enter in vibration frequency itself generates vibrations strength proportional to the input voltage. The voice coil motor can generate vibrations from DC or very low frequency. In FIG. 9, the number of the voice coil motor shown is one, the electronic device 1 (also electronic devices 2, 3 and 4 below), may include two or more voice coil motor .

8 (a) is a top straight line L shown in FIG. 2, at a constant rate over a m s input, in the case of tracing with a finger, which is input to the voice coil motor (position movement unit) shown in FIG. 9 it represents the time variation of the voltage (oscillating element input voltage). That is, FIG. 8 (a), the luminance value as shown in FIG. 3 (b) represents the time variation of the input voltage in the case of time varying.

FIG. 8 (b), the upper straight line L shown in FIG. 2, at a constant rate over a m sec, when the traced with a finger, the high of the display screen by the voice coil motor (position movement unit) shown in FIG. 9 and it represents the time variation of (the thickness direction of the position). That is, FIG. 8 (b), the luminance value as shown in FIG. 3 (b) represents the time variation of the height of the display screen in the case of time varying.

As shown in FIG. 8 (b), when using a voice coil motor as a position movement unit, the position movement control unit (not shown) moves the screen at a height proportional to the brightness value. Even when using a voice coil motor, as in the case of using the vibration motor or the like, depending on the pressure at the time of contact (contact area), it may be changed proportional coefficient in accordance with the movement speed of the contact position, it may be changed proportional coefficient.

The following describes the case of setting the threshold luminance value. Figure 10 is a luminance value, which is another example of time variation of the input voltage and the vibration waveform.

Specifically, FIG. 10 (a), with respect to FIG time variation of the luminance values ​​shown in FIG. 3 (a), the threshold value Th1, the threshold value Th2, ..., in which have appended threshold Th8.

FIG. 10 (b) represents the time variation of the input voltage to the voice coil motor (vibrating element) in the case of setting the as threshold in FIG. 10 (a). Input voltage of FIG. 10 (b), the luminance values shown in FIG. 10 (a) (the luminance value B 1, the luminance value B 2, ..., luminance value B 4) and the threshold value (threshold value Th1, the threshold value Th2, ..., is determined based on the threshold value Th8) comparison result.

FIG. 10 (c) illustrates a temporal change in the vibration waveform of the housing 10 by the vibration motor (vibration unit 140) shown in Figure 5 when the input voltage as shown in FIG. 10 (b) is changed time.

In the example of FIG. 10, the relationship between the luminance value and the vibration intensity, when the luminance value is smaller than the threshold value Th1 is set to the vibration intensity zero (vibration-free), if the luminance value is less than the threshold Th1 or Th2 vibration intensity was a strength Lv1, when the luminance value is less than the threshold Th2 or Th3 is a vibration intensity and strength Lv2, when the luminance value is less than the threshold Th3 or more Th4 is a vibration intensity and strength Lv3, the luminance value of the threshold value Th4 or more Th5 If less than the vibration intensity and the intensity Lv4, when brightness value is smaller than the threshold value Th5 or Th6 is a vibration intensity and strength Lv5, when brightness value is smaller than the threshold value Th6 than Th7 are the vibration intensity and strength Lv6, If the brightness value is less than the threshold Th7 than Th8 is a vibration intensity and strength Lv7, when the luminance value is the threshold value Th8 is a vibration intensity as the intensity Lv8, it is set That.

That is, the vibration motor (vibration section 140), as shown in FIG. 10, the housing 10 at a predetermined vibration intensity according to the comparison result of the luminance value and the threshold value may be vibrated. The same applies to the case of using a linear vibrator as a vibration unit 140. Further, instead of the vibrating portion 140 (vibration motor, linear vibrator) also applies to the case of using the position movement unit (voice coil motor).

In the example of FIG. 10, the interval between the threshold between adjacent (difference) is constant, it may not be a constant distance threshold between adjacent. In the example of FIG. 10, eight thresholds (threshold Th1, the threshold value Th2, ..., the threshold Th8) but, one to seven, or may be used more than eight threshold.

The following describes the case of using the difference in luminance value. Figure 11 is a luminance value, which is another example of time variation of the input voltage and the vibration waveform.

Specifically, FIG. 11 (a), the upper straight line L shown in FIG. 2, at a constant rate over a m sec, when the traced with a finger, represents the time variation of the difference in luminance value. That is, FIG. 11 (a) represents a temporal change in the difference between the luminance value of the m seconds.

Input voltage of FIG. 11 (b) represents the time variation of the input voltage to the voice coil motor (vibrating element) when the difference between the luminance value as shown in FIG. 11 (a) is changed time. Input voltage of FIG. 11 (b), is determined based on the difference between the luminance values ​​shown in FIG. 11 (a).

FIG. 11 (c) illustrates a temporal change in the vibration waveform of the housing 10 by the vibration motor (vibration unit 140) shown in Figure 5 when the input voltage as shown in FIG. 11 (b) is changed time.

The time variation of the difference in luminance value at time T 0 (zero seconds) to time T 7 of FIG. 11 (a) (m sec) changes as follows. That is, in FIG. 11 (a), the time T 1 difference in luminance value at (contact time position p 1) is B d3 (= B 4 -B 1 ) , and the (upon contact position p 2) time T 2, difference B d2 (= B 3 -B 1 ) next to the luminance value, the time T 3 difference in luminance value at (contact time position p 3) is B d1 (= B 3 -B 2 ) , and the time T 4 ( the difference between the luminance value at the contact time) position p 4 is B d1 (= B 3 -B 2 ) , and the difference in luminance value in the contact time) of time T 5 (position p 5 is B d2 (= B 3 -B 1), and the difference in luminance values in the difference B is d3 (= B 4 -B 1), and the time T 0 ~ time other than the above-mentioned time T 7 the luminance value at time T 6 (time of contact position p 6) It is zero.

That is, the vibration motor (vibrating portion 140), the housing 10 at a predetermined vibration intensity corresponding to the difference between the luminance values ​​may be vibrated. In other words, the vibration motor (vibration unit 140) determines whether the indicated position is an edge portion of the display image, or may be driven a housing 10 depending on whether suffering degree edges. The same applies to the case of using a linear vibrator as a vibration unit 140. Further, instead of the vibrating portion 140 (vibration motor, linear vibrator) also applies to the case of using the position movement unit (voice coil motor).

Incidentally, a threshold value is set with respect to the difference between the luminance value, drives the housing 10 may be (vibration, the height of the display screen movement) is allowed. That is, the vibration motor (vibrating portion 140), the housing 10 at a predetermined vibration intensity according to the comparison result of the difference between the luminance value and the threshold value may be vibrated. The same applies to the case of using a linear vibrator as a vibration unit 140. Further, instead of the vibrating portion 140 (vibration motor, linear vibrator) also applies to the case of using the position movement unit (voice coil motor).

Note that in FIG. 11 from FIG. 2, for convenience, have described the case where moving the contact position on the display screen at a constant speed, the same applies to the case where the moving speed of the touch position is not constant. Further, in FIG. 11 from FIG. 2, for convenience, it has described the case where linearly moving the contact position is the same even if not linearly move the contact position.

Figure 12 is an example of a flowchart showing a process flow of the electronic device 1. Figure 13 is another example of a flowchart showing a flow of processing of the electronic device 1.

Specifically, FIG. 12, the situation 1 below, in any circumstances situation 2 or situation 3, which shows the flow of processing when the contact by the touch sensor 120 is detected (an example). Further, FIG. 13, in any circumstances situation 1 or situation 2 below, represent the flow of processes performed when contacted by the touch sensor 120 is detected (an example). The flowchart shown in FIGS. 12 and 13 starts when displaying the display image.

Situation 1: Migrating from a non-contact state to the contact state (contact start of the finger)
Situation 2: (movement of the position of the finger in contact) change of the contact position
Situation 3: contact at the same contact position (the contact of the finger at the same position)

12, the touch sensor 120 determines whether it has detected a contact on the display screen (step S100). Incidentally, the touch sensor 120, the situation 1 above, status 2, when was either situation 3, to detect the contact.

If it detects contact at step S100 (step S100: Yes), i.e., if the conditions 1, conditions 2, was either situation 3, the touch sensor 120 outputs a touch position to the display control unit 100. The display control unit 100 which has acquired the contact position from the touch sensor 120, the contact position is determined whether it is identical to the previous (step S102). In other words, the display control unit 100, status 1, status 2, of the status 3 herein can be either situation 1 or situation 2, or to determine whether the situation 3.

If the contact position is not identical to the previous in step S102 (step S102: No), i.e., if a situation 1 or situation 2, the luminance values ​​of the contact position of the display image (i.e., the display image and the indication position the corresponding intensity value) to the vibration control unit 130.

Vibration control unit 130 which has acquired the luminance values ​​from the display control unit 100, the display image and the vibration control information corresponding to said contact position (vibration motor, the input voltage to drive the linear vibrator, or for generating said input voltage information) (step S110). For example, the vibration control unit 130 generates a vibration control information corresponding to the luminance value obtained from the display control unit 100 (brightness values ​​at the contact position of the display image). The vibration control unit 130, the previous brightness value obtained from the display control unit 100 may generate a vibration control information according to the difference between the luminance value of the present acquired from the display control unit 100. That is, the vibration control unit 130, the contact position may generate a vibration control information according to whether the edge portion of the display image. Vibration control unit 130 outputs the generated vibration control information to the vibration unit 140. Vibration control unit 130 vibrating unit 140 acquires the vibration control information from vibrates the main body (housing) 10 in accordance with the vibration control information (step S120).

On the other hand, when the contact position is the same as the previous in step S102 (step S102: Yes), i.e., if a situation 3, the housing 10 judges whether or not in vibration (step S130). For example, the vibration control unit 130, after the output of the vibration control information to vibrate the housing 10, before the output of the vibration control information to stop the vibrations, the housing 10 is determined to be in oscillation.

If housing 10 is not in the vibration in step S130 (step S130: No), the process proceeds to step S160. When housing 10 is in the vibration in step S130 (step S130: Yes), the predetermined time from the start of the vibration is determined whether elapsed (step S132). For example, the vibration control unit 130, the vibration part 140, the end when the predetermined time from the output of the vibration control information (most recently) (excluding vibration control information to stop the oscillation) has elapsed, a predetermined from the start of the vibration it is determined that the time has elapsed.

If the predetermined time has not elapsed in step S132 (step S132: No), the process proceeds to step S160. If the predetermined time has elapsed in step S132 (step S132: Yes), it stops the vibration of the housing 10 (step S134). For example, the vibration control unit 130 outputs the vibration control information to stop the vibration in the vibration portion 140.

On the other hand, if no contact is detected in step S100 (step S100: No), i.e., if a non-contact state, similarly to step S130, the housing 10 judges whether or not in vibration ( step S150). When housing 10 is in the vibration in step S150 (step S150: Yes), similarly to step S134, it stops the vibration of the housing 10 (step S154).

On the other hand, when the completion of the display (step S160: Yes), similarly to step S130, the housing 10 judges whether or not in vibration (step S170). If housing 10 in step S170 is in vibration (step S170: Yes), similarly to step S134, the vibration of the housing 10 is stopped (step S174), the flow chart shown in FIG. 12 terminates. On the other hand, the housing 10 in step S170 may not be in the vibration (step S170: No), skip step S174, the flow chart shown in FIG. 12 terminates.

13, the touch sensor 120 determines whether it has detected a contact on the display screen (step S202). Incidentally, the touch sensor 120, the situation 1 described above, when was either situation 2, to detect the contact. If the situation 3 above does not detect the contact.

If it detects contact at step S202 (step S202: Yes), that is, when it was either situation 1 or situation 2, the touch sensor 120 outputs a touch position to the display control unit 100. The display control unit 100 which has acquired the contact position from the touch sensor 120 outputs the brightness value of the contact position of the display image (i.e., luminance values ​​corresponding to the display image and the indication position) to the vibration control unit 130.

Vibration control unit 130 which has acquired the luminance values ​​from the display control unit 100 generates the vibration control information corresponding to said contact position and said display image (step S210). For example, the vibration control unit 130 generates a vibration control information corresponding to the luminance value obtained from the display control unit 100 (brightness values ​​at the contact position of the display image). The vibration control unit 130, the previous brightness value obtained from the display control unit 100 may generate a vibration control information according to the difference between the luminance value of the present acquired from the display control unit 100. That is, the vibration control unit 130, the contact position may generate a vibration control information according to whether the edge portion of the display image. Vibration control unit 130 outputs the generated vibration control information to the vibration unit 140. Vibration control unit 130 vibrating unit 140 acquires the vibration control information from vibrates the main body (housing) 10 in accordance with the vibration control information (step S220).

On the other hand, if no contact is detected in step S202 (step S202: No), i.e., if a situation 3 or a non-contact state, the housing 10 judges whether or not in vibration (step S230) . For example, the vibration control unit 130, after the output of the vibration control information to vibrate the housing 10, before the output of the vibration control information to stop the vibrations, the housing 10 is determined to be in oscillation.

If housing 10 is not in the vibration in step S230 (step S230: No), the process proceeds to step S260. When housing 10 is in the vibration in step S230 (step S230: Yes), the predetermined time from the start of the vibration is determined whether elapsed (step S232). For example, the vibration control unit 130, the vibration part 140, the end when the predetermined time from the output of the vibration control information (most recently) (excluding vibration control information to stop the oscillation) has elapsed, a predetermined from the start of the vibration it is determined that the time has elapsed.

If the predetermined time has not elapsed in step S232 (step S232: No), the process proceeds to step S260. If the predetermined time has elapsed in step S232 (step S232: Yes), it stops the vibration of the housing 10 (step S234). For example, the vibration control unit 130 outputs the vibration control information to stop the vibration in the vibration portion 140.

Step S220, step S230 (No), step S232 (No), or after step S234, the display control unit 100 determines whether or not end the display of the display image (step S260). If not finished the display (step S260: No), the flow returns to step S202.

On the other hand, when the completion of the display (step S260: Yes), similarly to step S230, the housing 10 judges whether or not in vibration (step S270). If housing 10 in step S270 is in vibration (step S270: Yes), similarly to step S234, the vibration of the housing 10 is stopped (step S274), the flow chart shown in FIG. 13 ends. On the other hand, the housing 10 in step S270 may not be in the vibration (step S270: No), skip step S274, the flow chart shown in FIG. 13 ends.
