Gpixel and Tower Announce VGA iToF Sensor

GlobeNewswire: Gpixel and Tower announces Gpixel’s iToF sensor, GTOF0503, utilizing TOWER’s pixel on its 65nm pixel-level stacked BSI CIS technology fabricated in its Uozo, Japan facility. The GTOF0503 sensor features a 5um 3-tap iToF pixel incorporating a pixel array with a resolution of 640 x 480 pixels, aimed at vision-guided robotics, bin picking, automated guided vehicles, automotive and factory automation applications.

We are very proud to announce the release of our new iToF sensor, entering the 3D imaging market, made possible by our collaboration with Tower’s team. Tower’s vast expertise in development of iToF image sensor technology provided an outstanding platform for the design of this cutting-edge performing product,” said Wim Wuyts, Chief Commercial Officer, Gpixel.”This collaboration produced a unique sensor product that is perfectly suited to serve a wide variety of fast-growing applications and sets a roadmap for future successful developments.

A demodulation contrast of > 80% is achieved with modulation frequencies of up to 165 MHz at either 60 fps in Single Modulation Frequency (SMF) or 30 fps in Dual Modulation Frequency (DMF) depth mode.

Tower is excited to take an important role in this extraordinary project, collaborating with Gpixel’s talented team of experts in the field of sensor development and bringing to market this new, cutting-edge iToF sensor,” said Avi Strum, SVP and GM of Sensors & Displays Business Unit, Tower Semiconductor. “Gpxiel is a valuable and long-term partner, and we are confident that this partnership will continue to bring to market additional intriguing solutions.

GTOF0503 is  available as a bare die and in a 11 x 11 mm ceramic package. Samples (bare die) and evaluation kits are available as well.

  1. How does a 3-tap pixel drive? I wonder why they don't make 4-tap pixel like Samsung does.
