Abstract

This paper proposes an optimal electromagnetic actuator for the application of optical image stabilization in cameras of mobile phones. The image stabilization composes of vertical and horizontal moving platforms to compensate the shaking from hands. The platforms are actuated by the magnetic force from voice coil motors (VCMs). For the application of mobile devices, geometry size of the mechanism is extremely limited. However, the larger the size of yoke that covers the magnetic field is, the better uniformity it will perform. This study, therefore, is dedicated to conduct an optimal design with the coupled relationship between magnetic field and mechanical geometry. The magnetic field is converted to equivalent circuit in terms of mechanism geometry, and verified by ANSYS. The genetic algorithm (GA) is then applied for deriving optimal values of geometry dimensions of the system within satisfactory uniform magnetic field.
