With the advent of the telecommunication era, a mobile phone becomes a necessary communication device in modern society. For silent tactile signal, vibration motors have become one of the generic components in most mobile phones. Conventional vibration motors employ three-phase windings with mechanical brushes for commutation. However, mechanical commutation in these prior arts greatly deteriorates its life span, reliability, and productivity due to structural intricacy. This paper introduces a novel design of solenoid-type vibrators using electromagnetic and mechanical analysis. The proposed vibrators have a simpler structure and longer life span by eliminating wear-prone commutation parts in vibration motors.
