Broadcom´s multi-pixel distance and motion measurement sensor based on the optical Time of Flight principle excels by supporting up to 3000 frames per second with up to 16 illuminated pixels. 

The sensor has been developed with a special focus on precise distance sensing and gesture sensing applications with the need for highest speed, small size and very low power consumption. Through its best in class ambient light suppression of up to 200k Lux, there is no problem to use it in outside environments.

 

Key features

  • Up to 3000 frames p/s
  • For precise distance sensing and gesture sensing
  • Highest speed, small size and very low power consumption
  • Up to 16 illuminated pixels

 

Additional features

The technology has been optimized to measure distances of up to 10m (black target) with an accuracy of < 1% on a wide variety of surfaces. It works equally well on white, black, colored as well as on metallic reflective surfaces.

The module has an integrated 680nm/850nm laser light source and uses a single voltage supply of 5V, the data is transferred via a digital SPI interface.

First samples will be available in 07/2018 and official market release in 11/2018.
