Infineon Technologies’ REAL3 IRS2381C, the 3D Time-of-Flight (ToF) single-chip solution, has been awarded as “Product of the Year” in the category “Sensors by the Embedded Vision Alliance.
The Award considers the innovation and achievement of the industry’s leading technologies, services, and products from companies enabling the next generation of practical applications for computer vision.
Jeff Bier, Founder of the Embedded Vision Alliance, said, “Innovative sensor designs, like Infineon’s 3D Image Sensor, are enabling new 3D vision experiences such as smartphone face recognition and augmented reality. Infineon has been a pioneer in creating 3D image sensors for visual AI applications. I applaud the company’s ongoing investment in innovation and quality in this rapidly changing and often confusing market. I’m proud that Infineon is a member of the Embedded Vision Alliance and delighted they have been recognized with this outstanding honor.”
“Building upon the combined expertise of Infineon and pmdtechnologies, the novel sensor delivers a new level of 3D camera capabilities in mobile device applications. Infineon’s REAL3 ToF sensor enables a unique user’s experience in secure face-authentication, computational photography and seamless AR-applications” said the company on its achievement.
The awarded IRS2381C image sensor ensures a high-quality, real-time and secure 3D vision experience with a supreme performance at all light conditions including outdoor. Compared to other 3D technologies like structured light, Infineon’s 3D ToF technology reduces the number of key components from three to two. Moreover, as the distance is measured directly, it requires the least computational resources on the application processor. All this makes the application much more reliable, reduces the size and leads to more competitive costs, while enormously cutting the power drain.
With proven high volume production and a fast, in-factory enabled and lifetime valid calibration process, IRS2381C is the 3D image sensor of choice for 3D camera manufacturing in mobile device applications.
