DALLAS, Sept. 3, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Texas Instruments (TI) (NASDAQ: TXN) today introduced the industry's first wireless haptic development kit, providing system designers with a fast and convenient way to prototype eccentric rotating mass (ERM) motor and linear resonant actuator (LRA) haptic effects. Using Bluetooth® low energy (BLE) and a free iOS app, the Haptic Bluetooth Kit (DRV2605EVM-BT) enables designers to create haptic sequences and LED patterns for tactile feedback, notifications and alerts from a pre-licensed library of more than a hundred distinct haptic effects, eliminating wires and the need to design haptic waveforms. For more information or to order the Haptic Bluetooth Kit, visit www.ti.com/drv2605evm-bt-pr.
System designers can use the Haptic Bluetooth Kit to select and test haptic effects from the Immersion-licensed library for virtually any touch-enabled application, from wearables and portable medical equipment to human machine interface (HMI) panels and augmented reality. It features the DRV2605 haptic driver for ERM/LRA and a SimpleLink™ Bluetooth low energy CC2541 wireless microcontroller. The kit also includes an LRA and alkaline battery support, which enables designers to mount the board to any surface for quick prototyping and integration. The iOS app allows designers to control on-board LEDs for attention-grabbing lighting effects.
A TI Designs reference design enables designers to quickly add haptic technology to space-constrained, low-power wireless systems, such as touch remote controls, smart watches and portable insulin pumps. The Haptic Feedback with Bluetooth Low Energy and iOS App Reference Design (TIDA-00266) includes schematic design and layout files, test results, sample code and complete user documentation, as well as a CAD file for a wrist-worn form factor.

Docker offers a new, lightweight approach to application portability. Applications are shipped using a common container format and managed with a high-level API. Their processes run within isolated namespaces that abstract the operating environment independently of the distribution, versions, network setup, and other details of this environment. This "containerization" has often been nicknamed "th...
