Dynamic Tuning

Optimizing Performance Using Device Feedback During Assembly

Active Alignment Camera Module

Taking a clear, undistorted photo requires a camera component with a carefully assembled lens and image sensor. Ideally, the lens and sensor align perfectly, so the focus of the optic path centers on the sensor surface.

These alignments take place during manufacturing and assembly, where production equipment is set up to meet design specifications.

However, in practice, high-volume manufacturing processes aren’t perfect. The occasional result being an out-of-spec component: expensive scrap or, worse, an unhappy customer.

To reduce costs and increase customer satisfaction, Jabil applies various dynamic tuning techniques in assembly processes, precisely adjusting optical positioning and signal levels.

Aligning Quality and Performance

To dynamically tune camera optics, Jabil’s active alignment process adjusts lens/sensor positioning based on actual camera performance. Optical characteristics are measured during the assembly process based on the component’s output signal and aligns the components accordingly.

Active alignment based on output signals results in:

  • Optimally-aligned components
  • The best possible focus across the entire image with optimal tip-tilt angle and concentration
  • Best positioning of LEDs used for image illumination

The principle is the same for optimizing other components, mechanical and electronic. The manufacturing process makes final adjustments based on a device’s actual, real-time performance rather than on theoretical targets.
