  The upper leaf spring (front spring) 32 further includes four arc-shaped extending portions 328 extending radially outward at the four corners of the upper outer peripheral end portion 324. Each of these four arc-shaped extending portions 328 has four wire fixing holes 328a into which the other ends of the four suspension wires 16 are inserted (inserted). The detailed structure of each arc-shaped extending portion 328 will be described later in detail with reference to FIG.

  The lower leaf spring (rear spring) 34 is provided at a lower inner peripheral end 342 attached to the lower end of the lens holder 24 as described later, and at a lower ring-shaped end 306 of the magnet holder 30 as described later. And a lower outer peripheral end 344 to be attached. A plurality of lower arm portions 346 are provided between the lower inner peripheral end portion 342 and the upper outer peripheral end portion 344.

Part (26; 28; 30)) is moved (swinged) in the first direction (front-rear direction) X. Such two camera shake correction coil portions (drive coil portions) 18f and 18b are called first direction actuators. Here, the camera shake correction coil portion 18 f on the front side with respect to the optical axis O is referred to as “front camera shake correction coil portion”, and the camera shake correction coil portion 18 b on the rear side with respect to the optical axis O is referred to as “rear camera shake correction”.

The holder moving part (26; 28; 30)) is moved (swinged) in the second direction (left-right direction) Y. Such two camera shake correction coil portions (drive coil portions) 18l and 18r are called second-direction actuators. Here, the camera shake correction coil portion 18l on the left side with respect to the optical axis O is referred to as a “left hand shake correction coil portion”, and the camera shake correction coil portion 18r on the right side with respect to the optical axis O is referred to as a “right hand shake correction coil portion”. Part ".

  As shown in FIG. 4, in the illustrated image stabilization coil (drive coil) 18, the front image stabilization coil portion 18f and the left image stabilization coil portion 18l are respectively opposed to the front permanent magnet piece 282f and the left side. The permanent magnet piece 282l is divided into two coil portions so as to be separated at the center in the longitudinal direction. That is, the front-side camera shake correction coil portion 18f includes a left-side coil portion 18fl and a right-side coil portion 18fr. Similarly, the left hand shake correction coil portion 18l includes a front coil portion 18lf and a rear coil portion 18lb.

  In other words, each of the front-side image stabilization coil portion 18f and the left-side image stabilization coil portion 18l is composed of two loop portions, whereas the rear-side image stabilization coil portion 18b and the right-side image stabilization coil portion 18l. Each of the coil portions 18r is composed of one loop portion.

  In this way, among the four camera shake correction coil portions (drive coil portions) 18f, 18b, 18l and 18r, two specific camera shake correction coil portions 18f arranged in the first direction X and the second direction. And 18l are divided into two coil portions 18fl, 18fr and 18lf, 18lb so as to be separated at the longitudinal center of the opposing permanent magnet pieces 282f and 282l.

  The four camera shake correction coil portions (drive coil portions) 18f, 18b, 18l, and 18r configured in this way cooperate with the permanent magnet 28 to provide an autofocus lens drive portion (AF unit) 20 ( The entire lens holder moving section (26; 28; 30)) is driven in the X-axis direction (first direction) and the Y-axis direction (second direction). Further, a combination of the camera shake correction coil portions (drive coil portions) 18f, 18b, 18l, and 18r and the permanent magnet 28 functions as a voice coil motor (VCM).

  As described above, the camera shake correction unit of the illustrated lens holder driving device 10 includes the lens barrel 12 itself housed in the autofocus lens driving unit (AF unit) 20 (lens holder moving unit (26; 28; 30)). The camera shake is corrected by moving in the first direction (front-rear direction) X and the second direction (left-right direction) Y. Therefore, the camera shake correction unit of the lens holder driving device 10 is called a “barrel shift type” camera shake correction unit.

  The lens holder driving device 10 further includes a shield cover 42 that covers the autofocus lens driving unit (AF unit) 20. The shield cover 42 includes a square tube portion 422 that covers the outer peripheral side surface of the autofocus lens driving unit (AF unit) 20 and an upper end 424 that covers the upper surface of the autofocus lens driving unit (AF unit) 20. The upper end 424 has a circular opening 424 a concentric with the optical axis O.

  The camera shake correction unit of the illustrated lens holder driving device 10 is a position detection means for detecting the position of the autofocus lens driving unit (AF unit) 20 (lens holder moving unit (26; 28; 30)) with respect to the base 14. 50 is further provided. The illustrated position detecting means 50 is composed of a magnetic position detecting means comprising two Hall elements 50 f and 50 l mounted on the base 14. As will be described later, these two Hall elements 50f and 50l are arranged so as to be spaced apart from two pieces of the four pieces of permanent magnet pieces 282, respectively. As shown in FIG. 2, the hall elements 50 f and 50 l are arranged so as to cross the direction from the north pole to the south pole in the permanent magnet piece 282.

  In the illustrated example, one Hall element 50f is called the front Hall element because it is arranged on the front side in the first direction (front-rear direction) X with respect to the optical axis O. Since the other Hall element 50l is arranged on the left side in the second direction (left-right direction) Y with respect to the optical axis O, it is called a left Hall element.

  The front Hall element 50f is disposed on the base 14 at a location where the two coil portions 18fl and 18fr of the front camera shake correction coil portion 18f having the two divided coil portions 18fl and 18fr are separated. Similarly, the left Hall element 50l is disposed on the base 14 at a location where the two coil portions 18lf and 18lb of the left hand shake correction coil portion 18l having the two divided coil portions 18lf and 18lb are separated. Yes.

  In this way, the two Hall elements 50f and 50l are divided into the two coil portions 18fl and 18fr of the specific two camera shake correction coil portions 18f and 18l having the two divided coil portions 18fl, 18fr and 18lf, 18lb. And 18 lf and 18 lb are separated on the base 14.

  The front Hall element 50f detects the first position associated with the movement (swing) in the first direction (front-rear direction) X by detecting the magnetic force of the front permanent magnet piece 282f facing the front Hall element 50f. The left Hall element 50l detects the second position associated with the movement (swing) in the second direction (left-right direction) Y by detecting the magnetic force of the left permanent magnet piece 282l facing the left Hall element 50l.

  5 to 7, in order to facilitate understanding of the lens holder driving device 10 according to the embodiment of the present invention, related magnetic circuits and Hall elements used in the related lens holder driving device are described. The relationship between will be described. The relationship between the related magnetic circuit shown in the figure and the Hall element has the same configuration (relationship) as that disclosed in Patent Document 2 described above. FIG. 5 is a perspective view showing the relationship between the related magnetic circuit and the Hall element, FIG. 6 is a longitudinal sectional view showing the relationship between the related magnetic circuit and the Hall element, and FIG. 7 is an AF unit. It is a longitudinal cross-sectional view which shows the relationship between a related magnetic circuit and Hall element when 20 is displaced to the front-back direction X.

  The difference between the related magnetic circuit and the magnetic circuit used in the lens holder driving apparatus 10 according to the present embodiment is that the related magnetic circuit constitutes a camera shake correction coil (drive coil) 18 ′. The four hand-shake correction coil sections (driving coil sections) 18f ′, 18b ′, 18l ′ and 18r ′ are not divided into two loop portions. That is, in the related magnetic circuit, each of the four camera shake correction coil portions (drive coil portions) 18f ', 18b', 18l ', and 18r' is composed of only one loop portion.

  As described above, the four permanent magnet pieces 282f, 282b, 282l, and 282r are magnetized with the N pole on the inside and the S pole on the outside. An arrow B shown in FIG. 5 indicates the direction of magnetic flux generated by these permanent magnet pieces.

  Next, with reference to FIG. 5, an operation in the case of adjusting the position of the lens holder 24 (lens barrel 12) in the optical axis O direction using a related magnetic circuit will be described.

  For example, it is assumed that an AF current flows through the focus coil 26 counterclockwise. In this case, an upward electromagnetic force acts on the focus coil 26 in accordance with Fleming's left-hand rule. As a result, the lens holder 24 (lens barrel 12) can be moved upward in the optical axis O direction.

  Conversely, the lens holder 24 (lens barrel 12) can be moved downward in the direction of the optical axis O by causing the AF current to flow clockwise through the focus coil 26.

  Next, referring to FIG. 5 to FIG. 7, the entire autofocus lens driving unit (AF unit) 20 (lens holder moving unit (26; 28; 30)) is The operation when moving in the first direction (front-rear direction) X or the second direction (left-right direction) Y will be described.

First, an operation for moving the entire autofocus lens driving unit (AF unit) 20 (lens holder moving unit (26; 28; 30)) to the rear side in the first direction (front-rear direction) X will be described. To do. In this case, as shown in FIG. 5, a first camera shake correction (IS) current is caused to flow counterclockwise as shown by an arrow I IS1 to the front camera shake correction coil portion 18f ′, thereby causing a rear camera shake. A second camera shake correction (IS) current is caused to flow clockwise through the correction coil portion 18b ′ as indicated by an arrow I IS2 .

In this case, according to Fleming's left-hand rule, a forward electromagnetic force acts on the front-side camera shake correction coil portion 18f ′, and a forward electromagnetic force acts also on the rear-side camera shake correction coil portion 18b ′. However, since these camera shake correction coil portions (drive coil portions) 18f ′ and 18b ′ are fixed to the base 14, as a reaction thereof, an autofocus lens drive portion (AF unit) 20 (lens holder moving portion). (26; 28; 30)) Electromagnetic force in the backward direction acts as shown by arrows FIS1 and FIS2 in FIG. As a result, the entire autofocus lens driving unit (AF unit) 20 (lens holder moving unit (26; 28; 30)) can be moved backward.

  Conversely, the first IS current is caused to flow clockwise through the front camera shake correction coil portion 18f ′, and the second IS current is caused to flow counterclockwise through the rear hand shake correction coil portion 18b ′. The entire lens driving unit (AF unit) 20 (lens holder moving unit (26; 28; 30)) can be moved in the forward direction.

  On the other hand, by driving a third IS current counterclockwise through the left hand shake correction coil portion 18l ′ and passing a fourth IS current clockwise through the right hand shake correction coil portion 18r ′, the lens drive for autofocus is driven. The entire unit (AF unit) 20 (lens holder moving unit (26; 28; 30)) can be moved rightward.

  Further, a third IS current is passed clockwise through the left hand shake correction coil portion 18l ′, and a fourth IS current is passed counterclockwise through the right hand shake correction coil portion 18r ′, thereby driving an autofocus lens. The entire unit (AF unit) 20 (lens holder moving unit (26; 28; 30)) can be moved leftward.

  In this way, camera shake can be corrected.

  Next, with reference to FIG. 8 to FIG. 10 in addition to FIG. 5 to FIG. 7, problems in the related lens driving device using the related magnetic circuit will be described in detail.

As described above, in order to move the entire autofocus lens driving unit (AF unit) 20 (lens holder moving unit (26; 28; 30)) in the rearward direction, as shown in FIG. A first IS current is caused to flow counterclockwise as indicated by an arrow I IS1 through the coil portion 18f ′, and a clockwise rotation as indicated by an arrow I IS2 is applied to the rear image stabilization coil portion 18b ′. The case where a second IS) current is applied will be described as an example.

In this case, as shown in FIG. 7, the magnetic field B I1 generated by the first IS current I IS1 flowing in the front-side image stabilization coil portion 18f ′ and the magnetic field B generated by the moved front permanent magnet piece 282f It can be seen that are in the same phase. The magnetic flux density of the magnetic field B is represented by a, and the magnetic flux density of the magnetic field BI1 is represented by b. Therefore, the front-side Hall element 50f is between the magnetic flux density b of the magnetic flux density a and a magnetic field B I1 of the magnetic field B, it will detect the total magnetic flux density (a + b).

  Here, in order to detect the position of the auto-focus lens driving unit (AF unit) 20 (lens holder moving unit (26; 28; 30)) by the front Hall element 50f, the total magnetic flux density a of the magnetic field B is combined. Note that the magnetic flux density (a + b) must be in phase.

  FIG. 8 is a diagram showing the frequency characteristics of the front Hall element 50f in the related magnetic circuit. In FIG. 8, the horizontal axis represents frequency (Hz), the left vertical axis represents gain (dB), and the right vertical axis represents phase (deg). In FIG. 8, the solid line indicates the gain characteristic, and the alternate long and short dash line indicates the phase characteristic.

  As can be seen from FIG. 8, the frequency characteristics of the front Hall element 50f are divided into a region I, a region II, and a region III. Region I is a region having a low frequency in a band below the primary resonance of the actuator. Region II is a region having an intermediate frequency in a band equal to or higher than the primary resonance of the actuator. Region III is a region having a high frequency in a band equal to or higher than the primary resonance of the actuator.

FIG. 9 shows the magnetic flux density a of the magnetic field B generated by the front permanent magnet piece 282f and the first IS current I IS1 passed through the front camera shake correction coil portion 18f ′ in the region I, region II, and region III. It illustrates magnetic flux density b of the magnetic field B I1, and the magnetic flux density of the total detected by the front-side Hall element 50f of (a + b) magnitude and phase relationships to. FIG. 10 is a table showing the relationship of FIG.

  The following can be understood from FIGS. 9 and 10.

In the band below the primary resonance that is the region I, the magnitude | a | of the magnetic flux density a of the magnetic field B is larger than the magnitude | b | of the magnetic flux density b of the magnetic field B I1 (| a |> | b |), The magnetic flux density a of the magnetic field B, the magnetic flux density b of the magnetic field BI1 , and the total magnetic flux density (a + b) are in phase. Accordingly, in the region I, the position of the autofocus lens driving unit (AF unit) 20 (lens holder moving unit (26; 28; 30)) can be detected by the front Hall element 50f.

On the other hand, at or above the primary resonance of the actuator, the movement of the front permanent magnet piece 282f is 180 ° out of phase with the phase of the first IS current I IS1 flowing through the front camera shake correction coil portion 18f ′.

In the region II in the region II that is higher than the primary resonance, the magnitude | a | of the magnetic flux B of the magnetic field B is larger than the magnitude | b | of the magnetic flux density b of the magnetic field B I1 (| a |> | b |). The magnetic flux density a of the magnetic field B and the total magnetic flux density (a + b) are in phase. Accordingly, in the region II, the position of the autofocus lens driving unit (AF unit) 20 (lens holder moving unit (26; 28; 30)) can be detected by the front Hall element 50f.

However, in the band of the primary resonance or higher in the region III, the magnitude | a | of the magnetic flux density a of the magnetic field B is smaller than the magnitude | b | of the magnetic flux density b of the magnetic field B I1 (| a | <| b |). Therefore, the magnetic flux density a of the magnetic field B and the total magnetic flux density (a + b) are in opposite phases. As a result, in the area III, the position of the autofocus lens driving unit (AF unit) 20 (lens holder moving unit (26; 28; 30)) cannot be detected by the front Hall element 50f. That is, the output of the Hall element has a resonance point.

  Therefore, when a Hall element is arranged between (inside) one loop portion of the coil, an autofocus lens driving unit (AF unit) 20 (lens holder moving unit (26; 28; 30) is formed in the region III above the primary resonance. It can be seen that the position of)) cannot be detected. In other words, the hose elements 50f and 50l are adversely affected by the magnetic fields generated by the currents flowing in the camera shake correction coil portions (drive coil portions) 18f 'and 18l', respectively.

  Next, the relationship between the magnetic circuit according to the present embodiment and the Hall element used in the lens holder driving device 10 according to the embodiment of the present invention will be described with reference to FIGS. FIG. 11 is a perspective view showing the relationship between the magnetic circuit and the Hall element according to the present embodiment, and FIG. 12 is a longitudinal sectional view showing the relationship between the magnetic circuit and the Hall element according to the present embodiment. FIG. 13 shows the relationship between the magnetic circuit and the Hall element according to the present embodiment when the AF unit 20 (lens holder moving portion (26; 28; 30)) is displaced in the front-rear direction X. FIG. 14 is a longitudinal sectional view, and FIG. 14 is a sectional view taken along line XIV-XIV in FIG.

  As described above, the four permanent magnet pieces 282f, 282b, 282l, and 282r are magnetized with the N pole on the inside and the S pole on the outside. An arrow B shown in FIG. 11 indicates the direction of the magnetic flux generated by these permanent magnet pieces.

  Next, with reference to FIG. 11, the operation when the position of the lens holder 24 (lens barrel 12) is adjusted in the direction of the optical axis O using the magnetic circuit according to the present embodiment will be described.

  For example, it is assumed that an AF current flows through the focus coil 26 counterclockwise. In this case, an upward electromagnetic force acts on the focus coil 26 in accordance with Fleming's left-hand rule. As a result, the lens holder 24 (lens barrel 12) can be moved upward in the optical axis O direction.

  Conversely, the lens holder 24 (lens barrel 12) can be moved downward in the direction of the optical axis O by causing the AF current to flow clockwise through the focus coil 26.

  Next, referring to FIG. 11 to FIG. 14, by using the magnetic circuit according to the present embodiment, an autofocus lens driving unit (AF unit) 20 (lens holder driving unit (26; 28; 30)). The operation when moving the whole in the first direction (front-rear direction) X or the second direction (left-right direction) Y will be described.

First, an operation for moving the entire autofocus lens driving unit (AF unit) 20 (lens holder moving unit (26; 28; 30)) to the rear side in the first direction (front-rear direction) X will be described. To do. In this case, as shown in FIG. 11, each of the two coil portions 18fl and 18fr of the front-side image stabilization coil portion 18f has a first image stabilization (counterclockwise as indicated by an arrow I IS1 ). IS) current is passed, and the second hand shake correction (IS) current is passed clockwise through the rear hand shake correction coil portion 18b as shown by the arrow I IS2 .

In this case, in accordance with Fleming's left-hand rule, a forward electromagnetic force acts on the front camera shake correction coil portion 18f, and a forward electromagnetic force also acts on the rear hand shake correction coil portion 18b. However, since these camera shake correction coil portions (drive coil portions) 18f and 18b are fixed to the base 14, as a reaction thereof, an autofocus lens drive portion (AF unit) 20 (lens holder moving portion (26 ; 28; 30)) As a whole, backward electromagnetic force acts as shown by arrows F IS1 and F IS2 in FIG. As a result, the entire autofocus lens driving unit (AF unit) 20 (lens holder moving unit (26; 28; 30)) can be moved backward.

  Conversely, a first IS current is passed clockwise through each of the two coil portions 18fl and 18fr of the front-side camera shake correction coil portion 18f, and a second IS current is supplied counterclockwise through the rear-side camera shake correction coil portion 18b. , The entire autofocus lens driving unit (AF unit) 20 (lens holder moving unit (26; 28; 30)) can be moved in the forward direction.

  On the other hand, a third IS current is caused to flow counterclockwise through each of the two coil portions 18lf and 18lb of the left hand shake correction coil portion 18l, and a fourth IS current is caused to flow clockwise through the right hand shake correction coil portion 18r. Thus, the entire autofocus lens driving unit (AF unit) 20 (lens holder moving unit (26; 28; 30)) can be moved rightward.

  Further, a third IS current is passed clockwise through each of the two coil portions 18lf and 18lb of the left hand shake correction coil portion 18l, and a fourth IS current is passed counterclockwise through the right hand shake correction coil portion 18r. Thus, the entire autofocus lens driving unit (AF unit) 20 (lens holder moving unit (26; 28; 30)) can be moved in the left direction.

  In this way, camera shake can be corrected.

  Next, the advantages of the lens holder driving apparatus 10 using the magnetic circuit according to the present embodiment will be described in detail with reference to FIGS. 15 to 17 in addition to FIGS.

As described above, in order to move the entire autofocus lens driving unit (AF unit) 20 (lens holder moving unit (26; 28; 30)) backward, as shown in FIG. A first IS current is caused to flow counterclockwise as shown by an arrow I IS1 in each of the two coil portions 18fl and 18fr of the coil portion 18f for use, and an arrow I IS2 is passed through the rear camera shake correction coil portion 18b. A case where the second IS current is passed clockwise as shown in FIG.

In this case, as shown in FIGS. 13 and 14, the magnetic field B I1 generated by the first IS current I IS1 passed through the front-side image stabilization coil portion 18f and the magnetic field generated by the moved front-side permanent magnet piece 282f. It can be seen that B is in the opposite phase. The magnetic flux density of the magnetic field B is represented by a, and the magnetic flux density of the magnetic field BI1 is represented by b. Therefore, the front-side Hall element 50f is between the magnetic flux density b of the magnetic flux density a and a magnetic field B I1 of the magnetic field B, it will detect the total magnetic flux density (a + b).

  As described above, in order to detect the position of the autofocus lens driving unit (AF unit) 20 (the lens holder moving unit (26; 28; 30)) by the front Hall element 50f, the magnetic flux density a of the magnetic field B and Note that the total magnetic flux density (a + b) needs to be in phase.

  FIG. 15 is a diagram illustrating frequency characteristics of the front Hall element 50f in the magnetic circuit according to the present embodiment. In FIG. 15, the horizontal axis represents frequency (Hz), the left vertical axis represents gain (dB), and the right vertical axis represents phase (deg). In FIG. 15, the solid line indicates the gain characteristic, and the alternate long and short dash line indicates the phase characteristic.

  As can be seen from FIG. 15, the frequency characteristics of the front Hall element 50f are divided into a region I, a region II, and a region III in order from the lowest frequency. Region I is a region having a low frequency in a band below the primary resonance of the actuator. Region II is a region having an intermediate frequency in a band equal to or higher than the primary resonance of the actuator. Region III is a region having a high frequency in a band equal to or higher than the primary resonance of the actuator.

FIG. 16 is generated by the magnetic flux density a of the magnetic field B generated by the front permanent magnet piece 282f and the first IS current I IS1 flowing through the front camera shake correction coil portion 18f in the regions I, II, and III. It illustrates magnetic flux density b, and the magnetic flux density of the total detected by the front-side Hall element 50f of (a + b) magnitude and phase relationships of the magnetic field B I1. FIG. 17 is a table showing the relationship of FIG.

  The following can be understood from FIGS. 16 and 17.

In the band below the primary resonance that is the region I, the magnitude | a | of the magnetic flux density a of the magnetic field B is larger than the magnitude | b | of the magnetic flux density b of the magnetic field B I1 (| a |> | b |), The magnetic flux density a of the magnetic field B and the magnetic flux density b of the magnetic field BI1 are in opposite phases, but the magnetic flux density a of the magnetic field B and the total magnetic flux density (a + b) are in phase. Accordingly, in the region I, the position of the autofocus lens driving unit (AF unit) 20 (lens holder moving unit (26; 28; 30)) can be detected by the front Hall element 50f.

On the other hand, in the actuator of the primary resonance or the motion of the front permanent magnet pieces 282f becomes the first IS current I IS1 the same phase flows in front image stabilizer coil portion 18f.

In the region II in the region II that is higher than the primary resonance, the magnitude | a | of the magnetic flux B of the magnetic field B is larger than the magnitude | b | of the magnetic flux density b of the magnetic field B I1 (| a |> | b |). The magnetic flux density a of the magnetic field B and the total magnetic flux density (a + b) are in phase. Accordingly, in the region II, the position of the autofocus lens driving unit (AF unit) 20 (lens holder moving unit (26; 28; 30)) can be detected by the front Hall element 50f.

On the other hand, in the band of the primary resonance in region III, the magnitude | a | of the magnetic flux density a of the magnetic field B is smaller than the magnitude | b | of the magnetic flux density b of the magnetic field B I1 (| a | <| b |) However, since the magnetic flux density a of the magnetic field B and the total magnetic flux density (a + b) are in phase, both the magnetic flux density a of the magnetic field B and the total magnetic flux density (a + b) are in phase. As a result, also in the region III, the position of the autofocus lens driving unit (AF unit) 20 (lens holder moving unit (26; 28; 30)) can be detected by the front Hall element 50f. That is, resonance does not occur in the output of the Hall element.

  Accordingly, by disposing the Hall element between the two loop portions of the coil, the autofocus lens driving unit (AF unit) 20 (the lens holder moving unit (26; 28; 30)) is used in the entire frequency range. It can be seen that the position can be detected. In other words, the Hall elements 50f and 50l can be prevented from being adversely affected by the magnetic field generated by the currents flowing in the camera shake correction coil portions (drive coil portions) 18f and 18l, respectively.

  FIG. 18 is a cross-sectional view showing the positional relationship between one permanent magnet piece 282 of the permanent magnet 28 and the focus coil 26 and the camera shake correction coil (drive coil) 18 arranged around the permanent magnet piece 28 in the magnetic circuit. It is.

  The height of the focus coil 26 is lower than the height of the permanent magnet piece 282. Thereby, the stroke in the case of adjusting the position of the lens holder 24 (lens barrel 12) in the optical axis O direction can be increased.

  Further, the permanent magnet piece 282 and the shake correction coil (drive coil) 18 so that the radial edge of the permanent magnet piece 282 falls within the radial cross-sectional width of the shake correction coil (drive coil) 18. And are arranged. Thereby, the sensitivity of the driving force for moving the entire autofocus lens driving unit (AF unit) 20 (lens holder moving unit (26; 28; 30)) in the direction orthogonal to the optical axis O can be increased. .

  By the way, in the lens holder driving device 10 having such a configuration, there is a possibility that the four suspension wires 16 may be broken due to a force in the direction of extension to the four suspension wires 16 due to a drop impact or the like. The lens holder driving device 10 according to the embodiment includes a breakage prevention member that prevents breakage of the four suspension wires 16 as described later.

  With reference to FIGS. 19 and 20, the fracture preventing member according to the present embodiment will be described in detail. FIG. 19 is an enlarged partial perspective view showing a portion for fixing the other end of the suspension wire 16 to the upper leaf spring 32, and FIG. 20 is a partial cross-sectional view of the portion to be fixed.

  As described above, the upper leaf spring 32 includes only four arc-shaped extensions 328 extending outward in the radial direction at the four corners of the upper outer peripheral end 324 (in FIG. 19, only one arc-shaped extension 328 is provided. As shown). Each of the four arc-shaped extending portions 328 has four wire fixing holes 328a (see FIG. 3) into which the other ends of the four suspension wires 16 are inserted (inserted). The other ends of the four suspension wires 16 are inserted into the four wire fixing holes 328a and fixed by soldering 60 or an adhesive (not shown).

  Therefore, the four arc-shaped extending portions 328 serve as wire fixing portions that fix the other ends of the four suspension wires 16.

  In the lens holder driving device 10 having such a configuration, a force in a direction away from the base 14 is applied to the autofocus lens driving unit (AF unit) 20 (lens holder moving unit (26; 28; 30)) due to a drop impact or the like. Even if the four suspension wires 16 are added, the other end of the four suspension wires 16 is fixed to the four arc-shaped extending portions 328 of the upper leaf spring 32, and the four arc-shaped extending portions 328 are elastically deformed while autofocusing. The lens driving unit (AF unit) 20 (lens holder moving unit (26; 28; 30)) rises.

  As a result, the four suspension wires 16 can be prevented from breaking. Accordingly, the four arc-shaped extending portions 328 function as breakage prevention members that prevent the breakage of the four suspension wires 16.

  On the other hand, as shown in FIG. 19, the magnet holder 30 has four upper stoppers 308 (only one upper stopper 308 is shown in FIG. 19) protruding upward at the four corners of the upper ring-shaped end 304. Each upper stopper 308 protrudes from an opening 32 a formed between the upper outer peripheral side end portion 324 of the upper leaf spring 32 and each arc-shaped extension portion 328.

  In other words, the four upper stoppers 308 protrude from the magnet holder 30 toward the inner wall surface of the shield cover 42.

  These four upper stoppers 308 restrict upward movement of the autofocus lens driving unit (AF unit) 20 (lens holder moving unit (26; 28; 30)) as shown in FIG. . In other words, when the autofocus lens driving section (AF unit) 20 (lens holder moving section (26; 28; 30)) moves upward, the four arc-shaped extending sections 328 are elastically deformed. The four upper stoppers 308 of the magnet holder 30 are connected to the inner wall surface of the upper end portion 424 of the shield cover 42 before the four arc-shaped extension portions 328 are bent and before the four suspension wires 16 are broken. Abut.

  That is, the four upper stoppers 308 function as breakage prevention auxiliary members that assist in preventing breakage of the four suspension wires 16.

  As shown in FIG. 2, between the fixing member (14, 40, 18, 44) and the autofocus lens driving unit (AF unit) 20 (lens holder moving unit (26; 28; 30)). Has almost no clearance. Therefore, even if a force in a direction approaching the base 14 is applied to the autofocus lens driving unit (AF unit) 20 (lens holder moving unit (26; 28; 30)) due to a drop impact or the like, the autofocus lens is immediately generated. Since the drive unit (AF unit) 20 (lens holder moving unit (26; 28; 30)) abuts on the upper surface of the fixed member (14, 40, 18, 44), the four suspension wires 16 are bent but plastic. There is no deformation.

Therefore, the four positioning protrusions 142 of the base 14 are inserted into the four positioning hole portions 40 b of the coil substrate 40 through the four positioning hole portions 44 a of the flexible printed circuit board (FPC) 44, respectively.

  As shown in FIG. 21, two Hall elements 50 f and 50 l are mounted on the back surface of the flexible printed circuit board (FPC) 44. On the other hand, as shown in FIG. 2, the base 14 is formed with a hole 14b into which the two Hall elements 50f and 50l are inserted.

  Further, as shown in FIG. 4, the coil substrate 40 has four hand shake correction coil portions (drive coil portions) 18f, 18b, 18l, and 18r along a circular opening 40c at the center thereof. Six lands 18a for supplying current are formed. On the other hand, as shown in FIG. 21, the flexible printed circuit board (FPC) 44 has six notches 44b formed at positions corresponding to the six lands 18a. Therefore, by placing a solder paste on these six cutouts 44b and reflowing the solder, the internal wiring (not shown) of the flexible printed circuit board (FPC) 44 and the six lands 18a of the coil board 40 are electrically connected. Can be connected.

  As shown in FIG. 21, a control unit 46 is mounted on the back surface of the flexible printed circuit board (FPC) 44. The control unit 46 controls the current flowing through the focus coil 16 and cancels the shaking detected based on two directional gyros (not shown) based on the position detection signals detected by the two Hall elements 50f and 50l. As described above, the currents supplied to the four camera shake correction coil portions (drive coil portions) 18f, 18b, 18l, and 18r are controlled.

  As shown in FIG. 22, the lens holder 24 has first and second protrusions 241 and 242 that protrude from the upper end in a direction away from each other in the left-right direction Y (radially outward). In the example shown in the drawing, the first protrusion 241 protrudes to the right and is therefore referred to as the right protrusion, and the second protrusion 242 protrudes to the left and is therefore referred to as the left protrusion.

  On the other hand, the wire constituting the focus coil 26 has first and second end portions 261 and 262. As shown in FIG. 23, the first end portion 261 of the wire rod of the focus coil 26 is entangled with the first protrusion (right protrusion) 241 of the lens holder 24. Similarly, the second end portion 262 of the wire rod of the focus coil 26 is entangled with the second protrusion (left protrusion) 242 of the lens holder 24. Accordingly, the first and second end portions 261 and 262 are also referred to as first and second binding portions, respectively.

  On the other hand, as shown in FIG. 22, the first leaf spring (upper leaf spring) 32 includes first and second leaf spring pieces 32-1 and 32-2 that are electrically insulated from each other. Yes. The first and second leaf spring pieces 32-1 and 32-2 have a rotationally symmetric shape around the optical axis O of the lens. The first leaf spring piece 32-1 is disposed substantially on the rear side and the right side on the first end (upper end) of the magnet holder 30, and the second leaf spring piece 32-2 is a magnet. On the first end (upper end) of the holder 30, the holder 30 is disposed substantially on the front side and the left side.

  The upper inner peripheral end 322 on the right side of the first leaf spring piece 32-1 is a position corresponding to the first protrusion (right protrusion) 241 of the lens holder 24, and is on the right (radially outward). It has the 1st U-shaped terminal part 322-1 which protruded in the side.

(Second binding portion) 262 is electrically connected with solder (not shown).

  Further, as described above, the other ends of the two suspension wires 16 (in the example of FIG. 22, right back and left front) of the four suspension wires 16 are arc-shaped by the solder 60 through the wire fixing holes 328a. The extension portion 328 is fixed. The other ends of the remaining two suspension wires 16 (in the example of FIG. 22, left rear and right front) are fixed to the arc-shaped extension 328 by the adhesive 62 through the wire fixing holes 328a.

  In this way, power is supplied from the suspension wire 16 to the focus coil 26 via the first leaf spring 32.

  Next, a method for assembling the lens holder driving device 10 will be described.

  First, the lens holder 24, the focus coil 26, the permanent magnet 28, the magnet holder 30, the upper leaf spring 32, the lower leaf spring 34, and the spacer 36 are combined to produce the autofocus lens driving unit (AF unit) 20. To do.

  Finally, the shield cover 42 is covered so as to cover the autofocus lens driving unit (AF unit) 20, and the lower end of the shield cover 42 is fixed to the base 14.

  Thus, the lens holder driving device 10 can be easily assembled.

  In addition, the dimension of the lens holder drive device 10 assembled in this way is 11 mm × 11 mm × 4.2 mm.

  24 to 27, unnecessary resonance in the optical axis O direction of the autofocus lens driving unit (AF unit) 20 (lens holder moving unit (26; 28; 30)) in the lens holder driving device 10 is described. A method of attaching the damper material 65 for suppressing the above and a position of the damper material 65 will be described.

  FIG. 24 is a partial front view showing the lens holder driving device 10 with the shield cover 42 omitted. FIG. 25 is a partial perspective view of the lens holder driving device 10 shown in FIG. 24 as viewed obliquely from above. FIG. 26 is a partial cross-sectional view of the lens holder driving device 10 when the damper material 65 is not provided, and FIG. 27 is a partial cross-sectional view of the lens holder driving device 10 when the damper material 65 is provided.

  In the illustrated example, the damper member 65 is disposed between the magnet holder 30 and the first leaf spring 32 that is an elastic member so as to surround the four suspension wires 16. More specifically, the magnet holder 30 (lens holder moving part (26; 28; 30)) is arranged so as to surround and surround the four suspension wires 16 at positions close to the four wire fixing parts 328. 30 (lens holder moving part (26; 28; 30)), and four extending parts 310 that extend radially outward at the four corners. The damper material 65 is disposed between the four extending portions 310 and the four wire fixing portions 328 so as to surround each of the four suspension wires 16. The damper material 65 is easily applied to the gaps between the four extending portions 310 and the four wire fixing portions 328 using a dispenser, as shown in FIG.

  In the illustrated example, an ultraviolet curable silicone gel having a viscosity of 90 Pa · s, which is TB3168E manufactured by ThreeBond, is used as the damper material 65.

  Therefore, as described above, after the damper material 65 is applied to the gaps between the four extending portions 310 and the four wire fixing portions 328 of the magnet holder 30, the damper material 65 is irradiated with ultraviolet rays to be damped. 65 is cured.

  With reference to FIG. 28 and FIG. 29, frequency characteristics when there is no damper material 65 (conventional example) and when there is a damper material 65 (first embodiment) will be described. FIG. 28 shows the frequency characteristics in the direction (X / Y) perpendicular to the optical axis of the autofocus lens driving unit (AF unit) 20 of the related lens holder driving device without the damper material 65, and FIG. The frequency characteristics in the direction (X / Y) perpendicular to the optical axis of the autofocus lens driving unit (AF unit) 20 of the lens holder driving device 10 according to the present embodiment when the damper material 65 is provided are shown. In each of FIGS. 28 and 29, the horizontal axis indicates the frequency [Hz], and the vertical axis indicates the gain [dB].

  As is apparent from FIG. 28, in the related lens holder driving device without the damper material 65, unnecessary resonance (high-order resonance mode) of the autofocus lens driving unit (AF unit) 20 occurs at a frequency of about 400 Hz. I understand that.

  On the other hand, as apparent from FIG. 29, in the lens holder driving device 10 according to the present embodiment having the damper material 65, occurrence of such unnecessary resonance (high-order resonance mode) is suppressed. I understand.

  Therefore, in the lens holder driving device 10 according to the present embodiment, it is possible to perform a stable control operation for camera shake correction.

  The damper material 65 is disposed so as to support the autofocus lens driving unit (AF unit) 20 (lens holder moving unit (26; 28; 30)) which is a movable unit on the camera shake correction side. When the holder driving device 10 is dropped, the impact on the autofocus lens driving unit (AF unit) 20 (lens holder moving unit (26; 28; 30)) can be reduced.

  The lens holder driving device 10 according to the embodiment of the present invention as described above has the following effects.

  First, the two Hall elements 50f and 50l are separated from the two coil portions 18fl, 18fr and 18lf, 18lb of the specific two camera shake correction coil portions (drive coil portions) 18f and 18l. Since it is arranged on the base 14, the two Hall elements 50f and 50l avoid the adverse effects caused by the magnetic field generated by the currents that flow through the specific two camera shake correction coil portions (drive coil portions) 18f and 18l. Can do.

  Secondly, since the breakage preventing member 328 is provided, the four suspension wires 16 can be prevented from being broken, and the impact resistance of the lens holder driving device 10 can be improved.

  Third, since the notch 44b is formed in the flexible printed circuit board (FPC) 44 at a position corresponding to the plurality of lands 18a formed on the coil substrate 40, solder reflow causes the flexible printed circuit board (FPC) 44 to The internal wiring and the plurality of lands 18a of the coil substrate 40 can be electrically connected.

  Fourthly, since the height of the focus coil 26 is made lower than the height of the permanent magnet piece 282, the stroke for adjusting the position of the lens holder 24 (lens barrel 12) in the optical axis O direction can be increased. it can.

  Fifth, the permanent magnet piece 282 and the shake correction coil (drive coil) so that the radial edge of the permanent magnet piece 282 falls within the radial cross-sectional width of the shake correction coil (drive coil) 18. Therefore, the sensitivity of the driving force for moving the entire autofocus lens driving unit (AF unit) 20 (lens holder moving unit (26; 28; 30)) in the direction perpendicular to the optical axis O is increased. Can be increased.

  Sixth, since the damper member 65 is disposed between the magnet holder 30 and the elastic member 32 so as to surround the suspension wire 16, unnecessary resonance of the autofocus lens driving unit (AF unit) 20 is suppressed. And stable operation can be performed.

  Seventhly, since the damper material 65 is disposed between the extending portion 310 of the magnet holder 30 and the wire fixing portion 328 of the first leaf spring 32 so as to surround each suspension wire 16, at the time of dropping / vibrating The damper material 65 can be prevented from moving, breaking, or deteriorating.

  Eighth, since the extension part 310 is provided so as to surround and surround each suspension wire 16 at a position close to the wire fixing part 328, an appropriate amount of the damper material 65 can be easily applied. .

[Modification]
Next, a modified example of the lens holder driving device 10 according to the present embodiment will be described.

  In the lens holder driving device 10 according to the above-described embodiment, the damper material 65 is provided at four positions at the four corners of the magnet holder 30 (lens holder moving portion (26; 28; 30)). The number and the arrangement position of the magnet holder 30 (lens holder moving part (26; 28; 30)) and the elastic member 32 so as to surround at least one suspension wire 16 are not important for the present invention. It is important that the damper material 65 is disposed on the surface.

  For example, as shown in FIG. 30, the damper material 65 may be provided only in one place as in the lens holder driving device 10 according to the first modification. Moreover, you may provide the damper material 65 in two places like the lens holder drive device 10 which concerns on a 2nd modification as shown in FIG.
