Chip-on-the-Tip Video Endoscopes

Variable Focusing and Sharp Focus

Previous Chip-on-the-Tip endoscopes use fixed focus optics, which are able to provide optimum display for only one object distance. If the object is at a different distance, the image loses focus.

Miniature Drives

By integrating an actuator between the optics and the image processing chip, it could become possible to achieve variable focusing, and the whole abdomen or objects with variable distances can be displayed in sharp focus. The potential installation space with diameters of no more than 10 mm is very small. Smallest piezomotors and magnetic miniature drives open up new possibilities for the opticalfocus and zoom function in chip-on-the-tip endoscopes.
