Sheba Microsystems Promises MEMS AF, Zoom, and OIS

Toronto, Canada-based startup Sheba Microsystems promises MEMS-based AF, zoom, and OIS:

Some demo videos are published in the company's Youtube channel.


  1. How are they routing the sensor wires? Since the entire image sensor is on a moving platform.
    I think they'll find that OIS MEMs concept quite difficult to conquer.

    Even if they allow the wirebonds to flex, and if the wirebonds survive, then you still cannot package it in tight form factors due to wirebonds and due to large MEMs actuator.

    1. In terms of the wire flexing, it can work to some degree. At least, a similar technology from MEMS Drive was able to make it all the way to Oppo smartphone prototype:


  2. Thanks for your comments. This is a great question.

    Yes, in the case of the current design, wire flexing is working flawlessly. The compact design is optimum for smartphone.
