Analog Devices presents high-res 3D depth camera with ±3mm accuracy

Jul 19, 2022 — by Giorgio Mendoza 2,981 views

The ADTF3175 is a Time-of-Flight (ToF) optimized for 3D depth sensing and computer vision applications. The device features a 1MP CMOS indirect ToF with a depth range of 0.4 to 4m with ±3mm accuracy. ADI expressed these features can be useful in applications such as industrial robotics, healthcare and augmented reality.

This 3D camera module is based on the ADSD3100 which is a 1MP CMOS ToF-based 3D depth and 2D visual light imager. The ADSD3100 includes an ADC, pixel biasing circuitry and sensor control logic built in the chip to make it cost effective and ease product integration.

According to the datasheet, the design of the ADTF3175 includes the lens and an optical band-pass filter for the imager, an infrared illumination source combining optics, laser diode, laser diode driver and photodetector and power regulators for supply voltage.

The datasheet also shows that the camera module uses a 4-lane MIPI CSI-2 to handle the image data output to the host system. The module supports 4-wire SPI and I2C for programming and operating the device.

The product announcement also specified that the ADTF3175 “leverages state-of-the-art triple junction vertical-cavity surface-emitting laser (VCSEL) technology from Lumentum Holdings Inc., to enable sensing in a wide range of lighting conditions.” Lastly, ADI included a demo video showcasing the ADSD3100 as part of an evaluation board (EVAL-ADSD3100-NXZ
