Zio Haptic Motor Controller - DRV2605L (Qwiic)

Haptic feedback can add a more professional level of interaction to your project. The same satisfying vibration you get when you receive a text message, phone call, or install a new app can be brought to your project using the Zio Haptic Motor Board. The board features both the motor and motor driver paired with the Qwiic interface to make adding haptic feedback simple.

This motor controller uses a LRA Y-axis motor for vibration and uses the DRV2605L from Texas Instruments to drive the motor. There's two Qwiic connectors on board as well for use in the Qwiic ecosystem at any spot in the bus chain. The perforations between the mounting holes and the board allow for a smaller footprint for more space-constrained projects.


The SparkFun Qwiic Connect System is an ecosystem of I2C sensors, actuators, shields and cables that make prototyping faster and less prone to error. All Qwiic-enabled boards use a common 1mm pitch, 4-pin JST connector. This reduces the amount of required PCB space, and polarized connections mean you can’t hook it up wrong.

Core Skill: Programming

If a board needs code or communicates somehow, you're going to need to know how to program or interface with it. The programming skill is all about communication and code.

2 Programming

Skill Level: Rookie - You will need a better fundamental understand of what code is, and how it works. You will be using beginner-level software and development tools like Arduino. You will be dealing directly with code, but numerous examples and libraries are available. Sensors or shields will communicate with serial or TTL.

Core Skill: Electrical Prototyping

If it requires power, you need to know how much, what all the pins do, and how to hook it up. You may need to reference datasheets, schematics, and know the ins and outs of electronics.

1 Electrical Prototyping

Skill Level: Noob - You don't need to reference a datasheet, but you will need to know basic power requirements.
