What types of haptic actuators can be driven by these models?
- The DRV2624/2625 are designed to drive either an Eccentric Rotating Mass (ERM) actuator or Linear Resonant Actuator (LRA)
How powerful of an actuator can these models drive?
- The DRV2624/2625 are rated for a supply voltage between 2.7 – 5.5 V, so it would not be optimal to be drive any ERM or LRA with a rated voltage of more than 5.5V with these chips.
- The minimum load impedance is 8 ohms, so driving at a max voltage of 5.5V and a load impedance of less than 8 ohms would strain the output capability of the DRV.
Can these models accommodate actuators of any resonant frequency?
- No the LRA frequency range for these designs is from 45 – 300 Hz
- ERM actuators do not have a resonant frequency
Do these models provide support for driving more than one actuator at a time?
- The algorithms within the chips that manage the auto-calibration, resonance tracking, over-drive, and auto-braking are based on only having to manage one actuator attached to the output and will fail if feedback from the output is composed of back-EMFs of two different actuators.
