22.3±9.8m/s2(2.28±1G)
(at 320Hz with mounting to 0.1kg ABS block, 3.0V input voltage)

(with voltage input time/interval between voltage inputs as per specs)

Is there a defined product life?

Continuous operation of 15 million cycles
(standard test conditions; voltage between terminals: 3.3V max./1 vibration cycle: 3.125ms × 3 pulses at 50ms intervals)

Does the excitation (vibration) force assume mounting to a 0.1kg case?

It assumes mounting to a 0.1kg case.

What will the excitation (vibration) force be using a 0.3kg case?

One third of the excitation force using a 0.1kg case

Why is the response speed fast?

The oscillator inside the product is supported by a spring and makes no contact with other parts, virtually eliminating friction in operation. The response is therefore fast.

What are the resonant frequencies?

160Hz (typ.) and 320Hz (typ.)

Can the product be operated at frequencies other than resonant frequencies?

Yes, there is no problem with that.

What directions does the oscillator inside the product vibrate when operated at resonant frequencies?

Horizontally at 160Hz (typ.) and vertically at 320Hz (typ.)

What directions does the oscillator inside the product vibrate when operated at frequencies other than resonant frequencies?

At frequencies near 160Hz, diagonally leaning toward horizontal; at frequencies near 320Hz, diagonally leaning toward vertical

Can excitation (vibration) force data be obtained for each frequency?

We can provide that data.

Is an input of more than 3 pulses possible?

Yes, it is possible.
However, the excitation force and oscillator travel inside the product will increase. If the movement is greater than the vibration space inside the product, the oscillator might hit other parts inside the product. As oscillator travel varies with the frequency, please examine operation with your desired frequency.

What happens if a voltage bigger than the maximum voltage is applied between terminals?

The excitation force and oscillator travel inside the product will increase. If the movement is greater than the vibration space inside the product, the oscillator might hit other parts inside the product. As oscillator travel varies with the frequency, please examine operation with your desired frequency.

What happens if a voltage smaller than the minimum voltage is applied between terminals?

Frequency characteristics (differences in excitation force at each frequency) will be less apparent.

Can input be a sine wave?

Yes, there is no problem with that.

Do square waves and sine waves produce a different feel?

Square waves and sine waves do produce a different feel. Please examine your options.

Explain the drive circuit.

This is a diagram of our recommended circuit. Click here for design guide.

Is a driver IC necessary to drive the product?

A driver IC is not necessary. An ordinary circuit can be used.

Do you specify a driver IC?

We do not specify a particular driver IC or driver IC manufacturer.
For your reference, we are currently working with Cirrus Logic, Inc., Dialog Semiconductor plc and Dongwoon Anatech Co., Ltd. on enhancing our support for customers.

For evaluation purposes, can you provide an evaluation kit that includes driver and software.

We can lend you a library demo set. (You will need to sign an agreement.)

Can you provide drive patterns?

We can provide drive patterns that are inputted into the library demo set. (You will need to sign an agreement.)

How should the product be mounted?

We recommend affixing the product with double-sided tape on its base.

Can a side face of the product be used as its mounting face?

The product should be mounted in a way that avoids deformation. For evaluations involving impacts, for example, please ask.

Could you suggest a double-sided mounting tape to use?

We are not recommending any particular double-sided tape.

What needs to be considered regarding holding and protecting the product?

We recommend using a method to hold the product in place to protect it from falls and other impacts. For details, refer to the specifications. Click here for design guide.

Can you recommend a cushioning material to use?

We are not recommending any particular cushioning material.

Can a magnetic item or substance be positioned in the vicinity of the product's mounting location?

Do not mount the product directly on a magnetic item or substance (magnetic item or substance with relative permeability of 2 or more).
Keep it at least 200mm away from magnetic items or substances.
Do not bring the product close to a permanent magnet.
Make sure the flux density at the HAPTIC™ Reactor's position is no more than 100 gauss.
