SQUIGGLE AF Motors in Giga-Pixel AWARE Camera

New Scale Technologies’ M3 focus modules have been designed into the next-generation AWARE cameras, the Duke University's gigapixel cameras assembled from many 14MP Aptina sensors.

The custom module with SQUIGGLE piezoelectric motor has a cross section less than 6 X 10 mm, a stroke of 2.5 mm and resolution of 0.5um. It moves a lens weighing several grams, so that each of the hundreds lenses can adjust its focus independently.
