Gpixel and Tower Semiconductor announced the GTOF0503 Time of Flight (ToF) sensor, utilizing Tower’s pixel on its 65nm pixel-level stacked BSI CIS technology. The sensor features a 5µm 3-tap ToF pixel incorporating a pixel array with a resolution of 640×480 pixels. A demodulation contrast of >80% is achieved with modulation frequencies of up to 165MHz at either 60 depth fps in Single Modulation Frequency (SMF) or 30fps in Dual Modulation Frequency (DMF) depth mode. The sensor is available as bare die and in a 9x9mm ceramic package.
The Vial Scanner by Schäfter+Kirchhoff (www.sukhamburg.com) was developped for the in-situ imaging of Drosophila pupae and for automated measurement of their size.
