Passive damping solution to optical image stabilization for voice control motors


Passive dampers (e.g., a viscoelastic material such as a silicon gel) may be applied at one or more locations within an actuator module along wires suspending a moving component (an optics assembly) from a fixed component (e.g., a base of an actuator module). The passive dampers act to passively dampen the motion of the optics assembly on the xy plane within the actuator module during optical image stabilization (ois) of the optics assembly when subjected to external excitation or disturbance, and may also provide z (optical) axis damping and impact protection.
