Introducing our next generation Controller IC, CM824, exclusive to Cambridge Mechatronics. Samples are now available to customers, offering a more capable and comprehensive solution to control its actuators compared to other alternatives.
CM824 has been developed to support the core needs of smartphone and consumer electronics customers, who demand highest performing actuator solutions at a competitive cost with short time to market and from a dependable supply chain. CM824 is particularly well suited to CML’s 8W (all-in one) OIS and AF actuator and flagship Module Tilt OIS actuator.
CM824 has been developed as an integral part of the SMA actuator system and incorporates CML dedicated knowledge, smart design and new hardware IP to support the latest actuator and control firmware features.
Consequently, CM824 delivers the processing capacity and most accurate position control, to push the boundaries of your actuation system capabilities. For autofocus (AF) and optical image stabilisation (OIS) applications, this includes faster focusing speeds and increased image quality under shake conditions. CM824 and its firmware also supports CML’s next generation of low power actuators.
Flexible IC Standby Power states are also included to ensure that the CM824 contributes to minimising overall system power consumption whilst maintaining actuator readiness. In addition to 1.8V, CM824 already supports a lower 1.2V digital IO so is future proofed for use with lower power consumption platforms offered by future generations of smartphone application processors.
CML’s IC supply chain partners have been chosen based on a proven track record of product quality and an ability to maintain security of supply to all our global customers.
Being the world leaders in SMA actuator systems, CML also provides a single, consistent, and responsible point of contact for supporting and guiding all elements of the actuator system from design-in all the way through to mass production and in-life support.
CM824 is available for sampling now. Please complete the web form to request a full datasheet and samples.
With its multidisciplinary engineering skillset, and design and simulation tools, CML’s team has mastered the control of SMA for precision applications.Learn about CML technology
