Diodes Pericom: A product line of Diodes Incorporated


The PAM8016 is a haptic driver designed with low latency, high efficiency, and more drive strength capable for driving Linear Resonance Actuator (LRA) and Eccentric Rotating Mass (ERM) haptic elements, which are commonly used for tactile feedback in the portable market.

The PAM8016 support flexible inputs with differential, single-ended or PWM inputs to ease the host microcontroller in driving the haptic elements. PAM8016 is designed with filter-less architecture that requires no external output filter, fewer external components, less PCB area and lower system costs, and simplifies application design. The PAM8016 also features short circuit protection and thermal shutdown to provide the optimal protection.

The PAM8016 is available in U-FLGA1515-9 package.
