Cambridge Mechatronics Limited (CML) is a design and engineering company operating at the very heart of Cambridge, UK. Our team has core skills in mechanical, electronic, control and software engineering, physics and material science.

This combination of abilities has been used to develop products for use in the mobile phone and consumer audio markets. Most recently, CML has brought to market a Shape Memory Alloy (SMA) actuator that adds optical image stabilisation (OIS) functionality to smartphone cameras. OIS is the latest trend in mobile imaging.

CML protects its designs and inventions and has a built a portfolio of over 100 granted patents. We have developed a number of strong partnerships to commercialise our technology and these have led to product launches by globally recognised companies such as Yamaha, Mitsubishi, Seiko, Panasonic and Foxconn.
