The DRV2605L device is a low-voltage
haptic driver that
includes a haptic-effect library and provides a closed-loop
actuator-control system for high-quality tactile feedback for ERM and LRA. This schema helps
improve actuator performance in terms of acceleration consistency, start time, and brake time and
is accessible through a shared I2C compatible bus or PWM input signal.
The DRV2605L device offers a licensed
version of TouchSense 2200 software from Immersion which eliminates the requirement to design
haptic waveforms because the software includes over 100 licensed effects (6 ERM libraries and 1 LRA
library) and audio-to-vibe features.
Additionally, the real-time playback mode
allows the host processor to bypass the library playback engine and play waveforms directly from the host
The smart-loop architecture inside the DRV2605L device allows simple
auto-resonant drive for the LRA as well as feedback-optimized ERM drive allowing for automatic
overdrive and braking. The smart-loop architecture creates a simplified input waveform interface as
well as reliable motor control and consistent motor performance.
The DRV2605L device also features
automatic transition to an open-loop system in the event that an LRA actuator is not generating a
valid back-EMF voltage. When the LRA generates a valid back-EMF voltage, the
DRV2605L device automatically synchronizes with the LRA. The
DRV2605L also allows for open-loop driving through the use of
internally-generated PWM. Additionally, the audio-to-vibe mode
automatically converts an audio input signal to meaningful tactile effects.
