Nowadays, high-density disc and high-speed optical disk drive have become popular as optical disc has many merits
such as cost effectiveness, high data transfer rate, large storage capacity, removability and compatibility. In this paper, we
presented a compatible optical pickup actuator for next generation versatile disc (NVD) system. This actuator has high
AC sensitivities and good 2nd resonance frequency through finite element method (FEM), and the actuator model
properly satisfied the specifications for NVD system. The FEM analyses method is successfully applied to design the
optical pickup actuator.
