3D Camera Module
The camera module combines our 3D image sensor with a lens, a VCSEL (laser class 1), and a processing unit in a housing so small that it fits into the notch of a smartphone. We develop the reference designs of the modules based on the requirements of the final product. Our module manufactures then use those reference designs as a blueprint to build 3D camera modules for mass production.
During the design-in process, our team of engineers, developers, and ToF-experts work closely with customer teams to integrate our depth-sensing technology into the products and configure it to the specific use cases.
The firmware that runs on the 3D image sensor hands over the raw-data from the Sensor to our pre-processing middleware. This software package then extracts the depth-data used for applications like FaceID. Additionally, we provide a complete software suite for calibration, configuration, and integration of our camera system and a powerful SDK for developers to build own applications.
Our application middleware partners use the depth-data output from the 3D camera to build an application solution for specific use-cases. We work with several middleware partners that offer solutions for a variety of applications specially developed for the pmd sensor. App developers can use this middleware to build their own apps with 3D depth sensing ranging from gesture control, face authentication, photo beautification, and bokeh to augmented reality apps.
Our Field Application Engineering team supports the partners, who build 3D camera modules in high volume, with support, tools and their long-term experience in building and producing ToF technology. From workshops to local on-site support, from calibration equipment to volume production quality checks - we help our production partners to build a high-quality 3D camera module with high yield in high volume.
