Diodes Incorporated Device Support
The Buzz 3 Click Board™ is a compact add-on board that contains a sounder driver that produces higher volume with a lower current. This board features the PAM8904, a piezo-sounder driver with an integrated Multi-Mode charge pump boost converter from Diodes Incorporated. With its wide input signal range of 20Hz to 300kHz, the PAM8904 can drive a sounder load of up to 15nF, providing a 9V output. It enables the selection of three different piezo sound pressure levels, keeps current consumption low, and extends battery life by employing built-in automatic shutdown and wake-up functions. This Click board™ is suitable for a variety of battery-powered applications, including medical systems, alarm clocks, home appliances, and security devices.
Buzz 3 Click is supported by a mikroSDK compliant library, which includes functions that simplify software development. This Click board™ comes as a fully tested product, ready to be used on a system equipped with the mikroBUS™ socket.
The DC Motor 16 Click Board™ is a compact add-on board that contains a high-performance single phase reversible DC motor drive with speed control. This board features the ZXBM5210, a fully-featured DC motor drive solution with an average current capability of up to 700mA from Diodes Incorporated. The ZXBM5210 has several modes of operations selected by two GPIO pins, has a wide supply voltage range from 3V to 18V, and low power consumption. It possesses three speed control modes, and provides under/over voltage protection, over current limit, and thermal shutdown capability. This Click board™ is suitable for a reversible DC motor and actuator drive, remote control motorized toy applications, home appliances, handheld power tools, and many more.

The Vibro Motor 2 Click Board™ features a compact size Eccentric Rotating Mass (ERM) motor, labeled as Z4FC1B1301781 as well as DMG3420U MOSFET to drive the ERM motor, since the MCU itself cannot provide enough power for the motor driving. This type of motor is often used for haptic feedback on many small handheld devices, such as the cellphones, pagers, RFID scanners and similar devices. This motor contains a small eccentric weight on its rotor, so while rotating it also produces vibration effect. This kind of motors is sometimes referred to as coin motors, due to its shape.
Besides the vibration motor, the click is also equipped with the DMG3420U, a small MOSFET, which is used to drive the motor. The Vibro Motor 2 click is an ideal solution for adding a simple, one pin driven haptic feedback on any design.
