Installing Libraries

 

You need to install the following libraries to your Arduino IDE before you can start programming your Zuino board with Zio Qwiic Haptic Motor Controller + LRA Motor. 

 

Download the following libraries and save it on your local Arduino IDE libraries folder:

Adafruit DRV2605 Library


To install the libraries open your Arduino IDE, go to Sketch tab, select Include Library -> Add .Zip Library. Select the above libraries to be included on your IDE.

Setup for Haptic Controller + LRA Motor (Z-Axis)

 

 


Testing Example Codes

 

The following example codes work for both Y-Axis and Z-Axis Zio Qwiic Haptic Controller + LRA Motor as both using the same haptic driver DRV2605 and share the same I2C address. 


1.Basic test


Open your Arduino

Go to File > Examples > Adafruit DRV2605 Library > basic

 

 

Open Serial editor to view the results
