What We Produce

The LRA (Linear Resonant Actuator) motor is an AC-driven vibration motor with a diameter primarily of 8mm, which is commonly used in haptic feedback applications. Compared to traditional vibration motors, LRA vibration motor are more energy-efficient. It offers a more precise response with a fast start/stop time.

Our coin-shaped Linear Resonant Actuator (LRA) is designed to oscillate along the Z-axis, perpendicular to the motor surface. This specific Z-axis vibration is very effective in transmitting vibration in wearable applications. In high-reliability (Hi-Rel) applications, LRA motor can be a viable alternative to brushless vibration motors because the only internal component subject to wear and failure is the spring.

Our company is committed to providing high-quality linear resonant actuator  with customizable specifications to cater to the diverse needs of our clients.

When an AC voltage is applied to the coil, it generates a magnetic field that interacts with the magnet, causing the mass to vibrate. The frequency of the AC voltage applied to the coil is tuned to match the resonant frequency of the mass, resulting in a large displacement of the mass.

Linear Haptic Motor FAQ

Extend the life of linear resonance actuator

In contrast to vibration motors, which typically utilize electromechanical commutation, LRA (linear resonant actuator) vibration motors utilize a voice coil to drive a mass, operating in a brushless manner. This design minimizes the risk of failure because the only moving part subject to wear is the spring. These springs undergo comprehensive finite element analysis (FEA) and operate within their non-fatigue range. Failure modes are mainly related to the aging of internal components due to reduced mechanical wear.

(Finite element analysis (FEA) is the use of calculations, models and simulations to predict and understand how an object might behave under various physical conditions.)

As a result, LRA vibration motors have significantly longer mean time to failure (MTTF) than conventional brushed eccentric rotating mass (ERM) vibration motors.

LRA Motors generally have a longer lifespan than the other motors. The lifespan under the condition of 2 seconds on/1 second off is one million cycles.

Are LRA motors compatible with all kinds of electronic devices?

Linear vibration actuator is compatible with a wide range of electronic devices, such as wearables, medical devices, and gaming controllers.

Do LRA motors require a motor driver?

Yes, a motor driver is required to operate the linear vibration motors. The motor driver can also help to control the vibration intensity and protect the motor from overloading.

Learn More About LRA Linear Vibration Motors-History of LRA Motor

The history of linear resonant actuators (LRA) can be traced to the use of eccentric rotating mass (ERM) vibration motors in personal electronic devices. Motorola first introduced vibration motors in 1984 in its BPR-2000 and OPTRX pagers. These motors provide a silent way to alert the user through vibration. Over time, the need for more reliable and compact vibration solutions led to the development of linear resonant actuators. Also known as linear actuators, LRAs are more reliable and often smaller than traditional ERM motors. They quickly became popular in haptic feedback applications and basic vibration alerts. Nowadays, LRA is widely used in various electronic devices such as mobile phones, smartphones, wearable devices, and other small devices that require vibration functionality. Their compact size and reliability make them ideal for providing tactile feedback to enhance the user experience. Overall, the evolution from ERM motors to LRAs in personal electronic devices has revolutionized the way devices provide feedback to users, providing a more refined and efficient vibration experience.

Unlike traditional brushed DC vibration motors, linear resonant actuators (LRA) require an AC signal at the resonant frequency to operate properly. They cannot be driven directly from a DC voltage source. The leads of an LRA usually come in different colors(red or blue), but they have no polarity. Because the drive signal is AC, not DC.

In contrast to brushed eccentric rotating mass (ERM) vibration motors, adjusting the amplitude of the drive voltage in the LRA only affects the applied force (measured in G-force) but not the vibration frequency. Due to its narrow bandwidth and high quality factor, applying frequencies above or below the LRA's resonant frequency will result in reduced vibration amplitude, or no vibration at all if it deviates significantly from the resonant frequency. Notably, we offer broadband LRAs and LRAs operating at multiple resonant frequencies.

LRA Linear Vibration Motors

How Does LRA Produces A Vibration

RA (Linear Resonant Actuator) is an actuator that generates vibration. It is commonly used in devices such as smartphones and game controllers to provide tactile feedback. LRA works on the principle of resonance.

It consists of coils and magnets. When alternating current passes through the coil, it creates a magnetic field that interacts with the magnet. This interaction causes the magnet to move back and forth quickly.

The LRA is designed in such a way that it reaches its natural resonant frequency during this movement. This resonance amplifies vibrations, making them easier for users to detect and perceive. By controlling the frequency and intensity of alternating current passed through the coil, the device can produce different levels and patterns of vibrations.

This allows for a variety of haptic feedback effects, such as notification vibrations, touch feedback, or immersive gaming experiences. Overall, LRAs use electromagnetic forces and resonance principles to generate vibrations that produce controlled and perceptible movement.

Know More About LRA Linear Vibration Motors

1.History of the LRA(linear resonant actuator)

The use of ERM vibration motors in personal electronic devices was first pioneered by Motorola in 1984. The BPR-2000 and OPTRX pagers were among the first devices to incorporate this feature, providing silent call alerts and compact vibration feedback to the user. Today, LRAs (also known as linear actuators) offer high reliability in small sizes. They are commonly used in haptic feedback applications and basic vibration alarm functions. Linear vibration motors are widely used in mobile phones, smartphones, wearable devices and other small devices that require vibration functions.

2.Driver IC

Leader micro linear motor LD0832 & LD0825 should be used with a driver IC such as the TI DRV2604L or DRV2605L. TI (Texas Instruments) sell an evaluation board with this IC chip on it. Check the link:

If you want more cost-effective IC, we can recommend you Chinese suppliers with same performance but cheap price.

3.The LRA As A Circuit Component

When LRA motors are integrated into a circuit, they are often simplified beyond their equivalent circuit, particularly when driven by a dedicated LRA driver chip such as DRV2603. By connecting the LRA to the appropriate pins of a stand-alone IC, designers and engineers can save time and focus on other aspects of the system.

Despite the production of back EMF by LRAs, many LRA drivers utilize this effect as a sensing mechanism. Certain driver IC measure the back EMF. They use this information to adjust the frequency of the drive signal to find the resonance. It enables the product to operate within closer limits and levels regardless of conditions or age.

It's important to note that LRA motors are effectively brushless. They do not suffer from the electromagnetic emissions associated with commutator arcing in DC ERM motors. This characteristic, similar to brushless ERM motors, generally makes LRAs suitable for ATEX certified equipment.

4.Driving Linear Resonant Actuators / Linear Vibrators

LRA linear vibrators require an AC signal to operate, similar to speakers. It is best to use a sine wave signal at the resonant frequency, as shown in the figure below.

Of course, the amplitude of the drive waveform can be modulated to produce more advanced tactile feedback effects.

Driving Linear Resonant Actuators

5.Extended Lifetime For Linear Vibrators

LRA vibration motors differ from most vibration motors in that they utilize a voice coil to drive the mass, making them effectively brushless.

This design minimizes the possibility of spring failure, which is modeled using finite element analysis (FEA) and operates in a non-fatigue zone. Because mechanical wear is minimal and the main failure mode is limited to the aging of internal components, the mean time to failure (MTTF) is significantly longer compared to conventional brushed eccentric rotating mass (ERM) vibration motors.
