Introduction

The Qwiic Haptic Driver includes an itty-bitty, Linear Resonant Actuator (LRA) vibration motor and Dialog Semiconductor's DA7280 motor driver IC for applications that require haptic feedback. There is also a kit for those that would like the motor mounted separately from the board. Note that you will need to manually solder the wires and motor to the board.
