Button Wiring

Use a 2-wire ribbon cable with 90mm of length. Solder the wires to the pins that are not linked/shared. Reference the photo for the correct pins. 

Switch Wiring

Use a 2-wire ribbon cable with 90mm of length. Solder to the middle pin and either the farthest pin on the left or right.

Shared Common Ground

The ground wire from the button is wired to the ground pin on the switch.

Vibrating Motor Wiring

The mini motor disc includes wires that are very thin and fragile. To avoid damage from handling, extend the wiring using a 2-wire ribbon cable 46mm in length. Use heat shrink tubing to insulate any exposed wire. 

DRV2605L Wiring

Solder the wires from the motor disc to the motor pins on the DRV2605L breakout. Use a 4-wire ribbon cable 46mm long. Solder the wires to the SCL, SDA, VIN and GND pins.

Feather Wiring

Solder the 4-wires from the DRV2605L breakout to the SDA, SCL, 3V and GND pins on Feather. Solder the signal wire from the button to the RESET pin. Solder the ground wire from the toggle switch to the GND pin on Feather. Solder the signal wire from the toggle switch to the EN pin on Feather. The ground wires from the toggle switch and DRV2605L are shared across the single ground pin on Feather.

Wired Circuit

Double check your wired connections to ensure the solder joints are solid. Use the circuit diagram and the wiring photo to reference the wired connections.
