CML's camera module technology has shipped in tens of millions of brand name products around the world. Cameras are one of the key features within electronic devices. Vendors compete to offer superior imaging technology, increasing both the quantity and quality of cameras. Smartphones exemplify such market trends, with the total number of individual camera modules expected to exceed 6.3 billion in 2023.
In addition, CML has developed technology to serve customers in haptics (touch), 3D sensing and augmented reality applications. The haptics market is set to reach $5 billion by 2025, with 80% of market growth being driven by smartphones, tablets and wearables.
Novel SMA-based haptics actuators enable new applications from gaming to revolutionary new smartphone casework designs. 3D sensing has numerous potential applications including within smartphones, home assistants, robotics, industrial machine vision and many more.
Beyond these markets which have immediate need of SMA technology, there is potential for future applications in gaming, computer accessories, TV and other household appliances. CML technology is applicable wherever small, lightweight, precise and powerful motion control can bring benefit.
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
