“A device is only as good as its power supply!”
This saying tells it all: Without a stable, noise-free and enough powerful 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 start 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
