Xadow - Vibrator Motor

Introduction

This small vibrator motor can vibrate like your phone. When using it, you only need to power for the module and then send “Vibration” command. In fact, the “Vibration” command is setting control pins to high level, then it will work. I like this module because it can create a short-term shock to prompt me whether one operation was successful, such as shaking my arm to switch my iPhone songs, which sounds terrible, but it does not like the buzzer.

Specification


  • working voltage: 3.3V

  • Rated Speed: 9000rpm

  • controlled by two digital signals

  • Dimensions: 25.43mm x 20.35mm

Demonstration


Here is a Demo Code showing how to turn on the vibration motor.

Hardware Installation:

Note: when connect Xadow Vibrator Motor to Xadow Main Board, you should concern about the connection direction. The connection method is that the unfilled corner of one Xadow module need to connect to the right angle of another module(see four corners of each Xadow module). Demo code like this:

<pre>
void setup()
{
    DDRF |= 0x01;
    DDRB |= 0x04;
}

void loop()
{
    //turn on the vibration motor
    PORTF |= 0x01;
    PORTB |= 0x04;
    delay(1000);
    //turn off the vibration motor
    PORTF &amp;= ~(0x01);
    PORTB |= 0x04;
    delay(1000);
    //turn on the vibration motor
    PORTF |= 0x01;
    PORTB |= 0x04;
    delay(1000);
    //turn off the vibration motor
    PORTF |= 0x01;
    PORTB &amp;= ~(0x04);
    delay(1000);
    //turn on the vibration motor
    PORTF |= 0x01;
    PORTB |= 0x04;
    delay(1000);
    //turn off the vibration motor
    PORTF &amp;= ~(0x01);
    PORTB &amp;= ~(0x04);
    delay(1000);
}</pre>

Help us make it better

Thank you for choosing Seeed. A couple of months ago we initiated a project to improve our documentation system. What you are looking at now is the first edition of the new documentation system. Comparing to the old one, here is the progresses that we made:

  • Replaced the old documentation system with a new one that was developed from Mkdocs, a more widely used and cooler tool to develop documentation system.
  • Integrated the documentation system with our official website, now you can go to Bazaar and other section like Forum and Community more conveniently.
  • Reviewed and rewrote documents for hundreds of products for the system’s first edition, and will continue migrate documents from old wiki to the new one.

An easy-to-use instruction is as important as the product itself. We are expecting this new system will improve your experience when using Seeed’s products. However since this is the first edition, there are still many things need to improve, if you have any suggestions or findings, you are most welcome to submit the amended version as our contributor or give us suggestions in the survey below, Please don’t forget to leave your email address so that we can reply.

Happy hacking
