    Hi guys, I'm fairly new to working with signals.

    So I am using 3 QP22B vibrating actuators (can be found here http://www.mide.com/pdfs/quickpack-actuator-sensor-datasheet.pdf ) and these are connected to an arduino microcontroller that sends a square wave so that the actuators vibrate. Since right now they are only working with the 5V signal from the microcontroller they are rather weak.

    Could anybody show me a circuit that I can use to amplify this voltage up? I would like anything from 50V to a 100V output if possible. Also I would prefer if the components used are on the cheap side or at least easily accessible as I assume I will need a set for each actuator.

    Thanks.

    What is the drive frequency? If mains frequency, then a transformer plus a MCU-controlled switch would be the simplest/cheapest drive arrangement.

    The frequency can change but right now it's at 10Hz
