Gen 3 single-chip VGA time-of-flight - MLX75027

Product description

The MLX75027 automotive time-of-flight sensor supports up to VGA resolution. The sensor, alongside the 90 nm BSI VGA pixel array, provides the control signals for the illumination unit and has a MIPI CSI-2 high speed serial interface to stream data to the host processor.

Thanks to a simple supply system, with only three positive voltage domains, the sensor simplifies the design of the supply unit and together with a low power dissipation allows a very compact 3D camera.

The MLX75027 supports up to 100 MHz illumination modulation frequency, which makes it well suited for VCSELs illumination and has a built-in temperature sensor.

The EVK75027 evaluation kit is available to evaluate the MLX75027 automotive VGA ToF sensor.

Webinar - introduction to continuous wave time-of-flight

Product

Time-of-flight is gaining popularity in several domains such as the automotive (both interior and exterior use cases) and the industrial domain, but also in smart applications (e.g. smart vacuum cleaner). This webinar clarifies the concepts you need to know to understand the technology behind continuous-wave time-of-flight (cwToF), and especially the principle of the pixel. We also provide an overview of the cwToF system and recommendations to get started. The webinar is accessible to everyone with an interest in time-of-flight technology and visuals and animations are added to facilitate the explanations.
