New Scale Technologies, Inc. (Victor, NY) recently announced that a new developer’s kit for its M3-FS focus module is available at Digi-Key and Mouser. This miniature all-in-one focus module delivers precision lens motion in small spaces to help OEMs create next-generation handheld, portable and mobile devices.

The M3-FS focus module has 0.5 micrometer precision, works on battery power, and resists shock, vibration and temperature extremes. It performs at any orientation with high dynamic stability and little or no pixel shift. The integrated controller takes commands directly from the imaging system processor. At 20 × 23 × 16 mm the M3-FS requires no more space than a typical fixed lens mount. It accepts standard lenses up to M16.
