Abstract

There is increasing consumer's demand for high-quality and high-performance mobile imaging devices. In this paper, an auto-focusing (AF) actuator with a flexure hinge that uses the electromagnetic (EM) circuit of a voice coil motor was designed and evaluated. The flexure hinge was designed by using finite element analysis. The EM circuit was designed based on the structural stiffness of the device. The EM circuit was analyzed using the design of experiments procedure. Based on the results, the effective design parameters were selected, and improvements were made to the design. Finally, a prototype of the AF actuator was manufactured, and the feasibility and performance of the actuator with the flexure hinge were verified experimentally. The experimental results indicated that the proposed actuator performed adequately and satisfied the design requirements.
