The system-on-chip (SOC) contains:
- A full data acquisition path including the modulation driver for LEDs or laser diodes, the photo-receiver with an 8×8 pixel TOF CCD array, the signal conditioning, the A/D converter and the basic signal processing
- An on-chip controller managing data acquisition and data communication
- An SPI interface for the command and data communication
- A supply-voltage power management unit
The epc611 evaluation kit contains two reference design implementations: The TOF>range 611, which is a single spot range finder module with a range of up to 15m and the TOF>frame 611, which is a tiny 8×8 pixel TOF camera with a FOV of 12° and a range of 2m. The kit also contains an USB interface, which bridges the UART interface of the modules to a standard USB interface of the host computer, as well as software (including source codes). The modules are powered by USB so no additional power supply is needed.
