TDK CORP. two evaluation kits provide an initial impression of the varied possibilities of haptic feedback that can be realized with PowerHap piezo actuators. The BOS1901-Kit development kit is designed for and includes three 60V actuators. The ordering code for the kit is Z63000Z2910Z1Z44. The board is based on the CapDrive driver architecture from Boréas Technologies, a developer of ultra-low-power haptic technologies with which TDK Electronics has signed a cooperative agreement. The main features of the BOS1901 piezoelectric driver are its small dimensions, low current consumption and fast response times.

The second evaluation kit is suitable for both the 60 V PowerHap types, and also the 120 V types. It is available in two versions: A driver for one actuator (Z63000Z2910Z1Z1), and driver for up to five actuators (Z63000Z2910Z1Z7). These kits likewise contain three types of PowerHap actuators. Both kits feature a USB interface and deliver setting options with regard to voltage amplitude, frequency, pulse repetition rate, signal shape and sensor functionality.
