Softkinetic and Melexis Collaborate on Automotive ToF Sensor

PR Newswire: SoftKinetic and Melexis announce the availability of their first ToF 3D sensor for automobile safety and infotainment markets. The MLX75023 sensor featurs SoftKinetic technology and manufactured in Melexis' automotive-grade CMOS mixed signal process. It's said to work in full sunlight and can be used for natural 3D gesture recognition and robust driver monitoring.

The MLX75023 features include:
  • QVGA resolution (320 x 240 pixel)
  • DepthSense TOF pixels
  • 1/3” sensor format (4.8 x 3.6 mm2)
  • High ambient light robustness, up to 120 Klux
  • Spectral response range 800-900 nm
  • Suitable for LED or laser illumination
  • Sensor modulation up to 40 MHz
  • Up to 600 fps raw image frame rate
  • Small glass BGA package
  • Ambient temperature range –40 to +105 degC

"Working together with Melexis we have now been able to create a sensor that is robust in full sunlight, perfect for the automobile environment," said Michel Tombroff, CEO of SoftKinetic. "We are excited about the multitude of possibilities with this sensor, and look forward to the ways car manufacturers will incorporate it into the design of their vehicles' cockpits and beyond."

"Our partnership has allowed us to be the first to provide 3D vision to the automotive safety and infotainment markets, and we are confident that these sensors will enhance life safety and change the way drivers and passengers enjoy the vehicle experience," said Fran├žoise Chombar, CEO at Melexis.
