TI Advanced Haptic Driver Makes Adding Tactile Feedback to Consumer and Industrial Products Easy


Posted on April 2, 2013 @ 09:00 am



Texas Instruments Inc. (TI) introduced a haptic driver that makes it easy to add realistic tactile feedback effects to consumer and industrial products, such as smartphones, tablets, ebooks, refrigerators, microwave ovens and washing machines.

The DRV2605 is the only eccentric rotating mass actuator (ERM) and linear resonant actuator (LRA) haptic driver pre-loaded with a library of 123 distinct haptic effects designed and licensed by Immersion, the leading developer and licensor of touch feedback technology. The DRV2605 also features a smart loop architecture that reduces startup and braking time by half, delivers twice the vibration strength and consumes 50% less power to extend battery life, compared to competitive solutions.

"Licensing Immersion's haptic effects library for the DRV2605 provides customers the convenience of one-stop shopping and rapid time-to-market," said Shreharsha Rao, manager for haptics products at Texas Instruments. "In addition, the DRV2605's smart loop architecture delivers the high performance consumer designers need to employ haptics in their products. And designers of household appliances can confidently implement capacitive touch buttons with haptics, in place of mechanical buttons, to boost reliability and extend button life."
