Time-of-Flight (ToF) sensors from ams OSRAM are based on proprietary SPAD (Single Photon Avalanche Photodiode) pixel design and time-to-digital converters (TDCs) which have an extremely narrow pulse width. They measure in real time the direct time-of-flight (dToF) of a 940nm VCSEL (laser) emitter’s infrared ray reflected from an object. This low-power dToF sensing technology enables host systems to accurately measure distance at very high speed. Accurate distance measurements are used in many applications e.g. presence detection, obstacle avoidance & ranging.
