Key Characteristics & Benefits
With an early priority date from 2003, these assets disclose a unique combination of image sensor modules, sliding structures, and lens systems that provides higher resolution images, more efficient construction of modules, or a compact and mobile solution for digital imaging on electronic devices. The portfolio is directed to methods and apparatuses for enhanced phone camera modules, including:
1. Nine patents directed to a lens system. These address reduction of an entire length, correction of distortion, increase in viewing angle, high resolution power, securing similar optical performance with fewer lenses, and reduction of variation of resolution power in automatic zooming, etc.
2. Six patents directed to the structure and driving mechanism of the lens module. These allow for the minimization of the size of an optical system, auto-focus or zooming module, cost-saving of materials, and facilitation of electrical connection, etc.
