A recently granted patent (Publication Number: US11921347B2) discloses a lens moving apparatus designed for use in camera modules. The apparatus comprises a housing, a bobbin, a coil, a magnet, circuit boards, position sensors, and elastic members. The first circuit board includes pads connected to elastic members, while the lower elastic member is connected to the coil. The apparatus also features a supporting member connecting the upper elastic member and a second circuit board, with the first position sensor providing a driving signal to the coil through the lower elastic member and specific pads on the circuit board.

Furthermore, the lens moving apparatus includes various components such as springs, supporting members, magnets, and position sensors to facilitate precise movement of the lens. The apparatus is configured to interact with a second magnet and coil to enable movement perpendicular to the optical axis. Additionally, the apparatus is part of a camera module that includes a lens, an image sensor, and the lens moving apparatus. This innovative technology can potentially enhance the performance of camera modules in devices such as mobile phones, offering improved image quality and stability during capturing and recording activities.
