Broadcom Webinar: Time of Flight 3D Sensors – Taking Optical Measurement To A New Level​


Optical distance measurement has a variety of uses in industrial applications. For years, Time-of-Flight (ToF) sensors have been used in measurement and monitoring tasks in factory automation and production.   

Some of the common uses include monitoring the position of an object in production as it is being transported through a conveyor belt, checking the orientation and surface profile of an object before it is packaged, and analyzing the movement pattern of a robotic arm to minimize risks of failures and ensure human safety.

There have been new use cases for optical distance measurement that require precise 3D information and extended range. Meeting these requirements in the presence of optical interferences can be very challenging, especially considering the frequent opening and closing of doors allowing external light to get inside a manufacturing plant or drastic change in lighting condition around a robotic welding cell. Broadcom has addressed these requirements in its latest AFBR-S50 offering and taken optical distance and motion measurement performance to a new level.

In this webinar you will learn more about Broadcom’s AFBR-S50 multipixel ToF sensor platform and the technology used to create this unique sensor family. It will also cover target markets and applications.


Key Take-Aways:

  • Learn the fundamentals of Broadcom’s ToF sensor technology supporting up to 3000 frames per second and capable of providing accurate distance measurement of an object up to 10 meters with an accuracy better than one percent. 
  • Understand how ambient light conditions up to 200k Lux can be achieved and how the device works on various objects including white, black and colored surfaces as well as reflective metallic surfaces. 
  • Find out more about the sensor interfaces and evaluation tools available.
