Introducing SmartHaptic technology by NXP®
Replace the traditional buzz generator with a boosted Haptic Driver to reproduce any virtual pattern.
The TFA9914 is a high-efficiency 10 V boosted class-D haptic Driver IC with a sophisticated smart haptic and LRA protection algorithm. It can deliver up to 5.6 W (AVG) output power into an 8 Ohm LRA, at a battery supply voltage of 4.0 V. The internal boost converter raises the supply voltage to 10 V, providing ample headroom for major improvements in LRA performance of clean haptic effects and audio display features. Unlike competing solutions, the adaptive haptic boost algorithm uses feedback to accurately calculate both the temperature, the excursion, and resonance frequency, allowing the TFA9914 to adapt to changes in the LRA condition and environment. It enables audio display, audio to haptic and short click use cases.
The next generation of Haptic technology allows manufacturers to reach the 100% full-screen ratio by removing all physical buttons, including those on the edge.
