LRA Driver Wireling

AST1013

Whisker Kickstarter Item


Note: This item is currently only available on Kickstarter, it will be for sale on our site after the Kickstarter is complete and rewards have been fulfilled



DESCRIPTION

This Wireling lets you control a Linear Resonant Actuator (LRA) via the I²C bus and the DRV2605 IC, to create a Haptic vibration type motion. Due to their construction and operating method, LRAs outlast traditional vibration motors several times over and are tuned to operate at frequencies that are optimal for skin contact. 

This Haptic Driver also includes a licensed library of pre-programmed waveforms that generate a variety of effects, activated by I²C commands.
