“A device is only as good as its power supply!”
This saying sums it up nicely: Without a stable, noise-free and sufficiently supply, a TOF camera will not perform as expected. Be there supply voltage variations of the illumination or switching regulator noise of the analog and digital supply, they affect the distance measurement performance. Everything starts here!
Rules of thumb:
- Run the camera at highest frame rate and check your power supply quality.
Is it stable? Is it cold enough?
- Implement the sensitive analog voltages with a linear LDO
