Integrates library with over 100 haptic effects Screw terminals for connecting ERM or LRA motor Audio jack for audio-to-vibe effects Several jumpers for hardware configuration Includes licensed TouchSense 2200 effects from Immersion 3.3V or 5V power supply
Haptic click carries TI's DRV2605 Haptic Driver for ERM and LRA vibration motors. The DRV2605 IC integrates an extensive library with over 100 haptic effects. These include audio-to-vibe features, which generate vibrations from the lower frequency range of the audio input (licensed version of TouchSense 2200 effects from Immersion). The board also carries screw terminals for connecting a motor, as well as an audio interface (3.5mm jack) for the audio-to-vibe feature.
With this board, you can be on the cutting edge of User Interface development. Bring tactile feedback back into hardware design by using this board's DRV2605 IC and an ERM or LRA motor (a motor is not included). Different patterns of vibration can fool the fingertips into feeling all kinds of sensations. A solid surface can feel like a button, for example.
With the audio-to-vibe feature, the motor vibrates in tune with the lower frequency range of an audio input.
The extensive range of effects also means that the resources of your host MCU aren't strained, although you still have the option of bypassing the library effects and directly sending a PWM signal through I2C.
Haptic click communicates with your target MCU through mikroBUS I2C (SCL, SDA), EN (in place of CS) and PWM pins.
An SMD jumper allows you to configure it for 3.3V or 5V power (in 3.3V position by default). Another SMD jumper allows you to set the audio-to-vibe feature to use the left or right audio channel (R4 or R5, respectively). This is set to R5 by default (right channel). The PWM trigger can be disabled by removing the PWM SEL jumper, thus avoiding potential interference with audio input.
Note: The picture shows the board with through-hole headers. The board now comes populated with male pin headers already soldered for your convenience. The board's user manual has yet to be updated to remove the soldering instructions.
mikroBUS Click Boards Overview Click boards plug directly into a mikroBUS socket. mikroBUS is a specially designed plug-and-play pinout standard. The sockets are found on Clicker boards, the Flip & Click Arduino/Python-compatible board, the Quail board, these mikromedia shields, the Microchip Curiosity board, and development systems from mikroElektronika (V7 systems and later).
You also can connect Click boards to many other popular platforms via these adapters:
- PC — Click USB Adapter (MIKROE-1433)
- Arduino — Arduino UNO click shield (MIKROE-1581) or Arduino Mega click shield (MIKROE-1900)
- Raspberry Pi — Pi click shield (MIKROE-1512) or Pi 2 click shield (MIKROE-1879)
- BeagleBone Black — BeagleBone click shield (MIKROE-1596) or mikroBUS Cape (MIKROE-1857)
- STM32F3 Discovery — STM32F3 Discovery Shield (MIKROE-1447)
- STM32F4 Discovery — STM32F4 Discovery Shield (MIKROE-1481)
- Stellaris LM4F120 LaunchPad / Tiva TM4C123G LaunchPad — Click BOOSTER PACK (MIKROE-1363)
- Freescale Freedom — FRDM-KL46Z click shield (MIKROE-1795) or FRDM-K64F click shield (MIKROE-1794)
In addition, it is royalty-free to add mikroBUS to your own designs. Visit the mikroBUS Category to see the full line of Click boards.
