Electronics dToF sensors time-of-flight

STMICROELECTRONICS VL53L9 all-in-one, direct Time-of-Flight (dToF) 3D LiDAR (Light Detection And Ranging) module with market-leading 2.3k resolution can accurately measure the distance to objects in a scene, and are driving new capabilities in smart devices, home appliances, and industrial automation. Device delivers a resolution of up to 2.3k zones. Integrating a dual scan flood illumination, the LiDAR can detect small objects and edges and captures both 2D infrared (IR) images and 3D depth map information. It comes as a ready-to-use low power module with its on-chip dToF processing, requiring no extra external components or calibration. Additionally, the device delivers state-of-the-art ranging performance from 5cm to 10 meters. Product suite of features elevates camera-assist performance, supporting macro up to telephoto photography. It enables features such as laser autofocus, bokeh, and cinematic effects for still and video at 60fps (frame per second).
