BELICE-SD is a proprietary infrared dot-pattern illuminator for stereoscopic imaging platforms. It produces a very high-contrast dot pattern that stereo-matching algorithms can use to address low-texture situations and achieve high-accuracy depth maps. An additional benefit of the dot pattern is a reduction of the computational load required to perform the depth calculation. The BELICE-SD dot-pattern illuminator is provided in a miniature package that is compatible with standard lead-free reflow processes. As such, it can be successfully used onboard of a great variety of 3D sensing platforms, from mobile to IoT to robotics. A pair of BELICE-SD emitters produce approximately 10k dots at 850nm. A 940nm version is currently under development.
