Voice-coil motor reduces camera’s size, power

Vasstek International's ultra-thin actuator, the iVCM (intelligent voice-coil motor), is an auto-focus camera module. Measuring 10 by 10 by 5.4 mm, the total module height is below 5.8 mm. This compares favorably to conventional auto-focus solutions such as piezo motors, stepping motors, and voice-coil motors, which are larger, consume more power, are difficult to mass produce, and aren't always reliable. The iVCM is a simple design, containing no flat springs or gears. It meets a 1.8-m drop and environmental test. More information is available at www.vasstek.com.tw.
