Simplifying the circuit.

Hey all.

I am working on a small project and need some advice on how to approach it. So far I have gotten the code down on a simulator and is just waiting on getting some of the components home.

I know how to create a PCB and to solder and have basic understanding about electronics.

What I want to do is to control 6 vibration motors separately through the arduino board. I have found this tutorial that shows how to connect a single motor: http://learningaboutelectronics.com/Articles/Vibration-motor-circuit.php

I am using these vibration motors: http://www.miniinthebox.com/da/diy-1027-flat-vibrating-vibration-motor-soelv-5-stk_p1428065.html

Now my question is: How do I connect the other 5? Is it just a matter of creating 6 identical circuits from the tutorial or can it be simplyfied? I don't know enough about the effects of the components to figure that out on my own.

Thanks in advance Daniel

s it just a matter of creating 6 identical circuits from the tutorial

Yes.

can it be simplyfied

No.

Thanks... Then it should be simple enough. :)

Can also use a TPIC6B595 high current output shift register to control up to 8 motors from just 3 Arduino pins. Use one output each in place of the NPN transistor. http://www.digikey.com/product-search/en?pv69=80&k=tpic6b595&mnonly=0&newproducts=0&ColumnSort=0&page=1&stock=1&quantity=0&ptm=0&fid=0&pageSize=25

Lose the 1N4001 and use 1N4148 instead, it can handle 80mA fine and are much smaller, neater, cheaper.
