ESPROS launches revolutionary 8×8 TOF imager!
Sargans, Switzerland – July 11th, 2018
ESPROS Photonics Corporation has launched a revolutionary new 8×8 pixel
Time-of-Flight (TOF) image sensor earlier this month. The sensor with only
2.6×2.7mm is extremely small with 7 different TOF operation modes. Therefore
this sensor can be implemented for many different industrial applications.
One of these applications is the flying height detection for a drone (range
finding). Drones need to operate from precious battery charge and require
very compact and energy efficient solutions. This is an ideal playground for
the epc611, which has a superior photo-sensitivity compared to conventional
TOF sensors and therefore safes illumination power. The versatile operation
modes allow the sensor to be equally well applied towards collision avoidance
in the flying direction of the drone. Today ESPROS Photonics announces the
availability of an epc611 Evaluation Kit for getting started with Time-of Flight
development quickly. The kit contains reference design information and software.
