Mechanical Mounting for Vibration Motors to PCBs – AB-006 Released

Mounted to PCB - Injection Mount

Mounted to PCB – Injection Mount

“How should I mount my vibration motor?” – a common question we are asked, and with good reason.

It is not always immediately obvious how to secure your vibrating motor for vibration alerting or haptic feedback functions, although some are provided with pretty straightforward methods such as coin vibration motor’s adhesive backing or ERMs with through-hole pins for soldering.

So to help we’ve started a series of Application Bulletins which discuss different mounting options, and the first instalment tackles Printed Circuit Boards. So for those who are perhaps making handheld equipment, or are using a PCB in another application, you can check it out here:

It’s easier than you might think!
