Hydra 3D+ 3D ToF sensor works without motion artefacts with 10 µm three-tap pixel

Hydra 3D+ High Resolution Time of Flight (ToF) Sensor for 3D detection and measurement

Teledyne e2v have introduced Hydra3D+, an 832 x 600 pixel resolution ToF image sensor, designed with CMOS technology to provide 3D detection and measurement.

Hydra 3D+ has been developed for camera designers to provide users reliable 3D detection and the highest levels of 3D performance, including high depth resolution, high speed and flexible operating conditions and alongside other ToF cameras without interference.

Hydra 3D+ is supplied as a sensor and so requires it to be integrated into a camera for use. It comes in a ceramic LGA package, operates from -40°C to +105°C and consumes 2.6W. It has scalable LVDS outputs (13, 7 or 4 channels) that can be interfaced with a modern PHY for GigE or USB output and allows for SPI control.

Please contact us to learn more about the Hydra 3D+ Image sensor.

First High Resolution ToF Sensor to Work Without Motion Artefacts

The Hydra 3D+ sensor includes a brand-new 10 µm, three-tap pixel, which provides very fast transfer times, displays high sensitivity in the NIR wavelength range and excellent demodulation contrast. This combination enables the sensor to operate in real-time without motion artefacts (even if there are fast moving objects in the scene).

At all distances and in any condition
Hydra 3D+ can be operated in real-time at short, mid and long-range distances, in both indoor and outdoor conditions while providing an excellent temporal noise, making it suitable for a wide range of professional and challenging applications.

The Hydra 3D+ sensor offers an innovative on-chip system management feature which enables the system to work alongside multiple ToF cameras without interference and so maximise reliable measurements. Hydra 3D+ is adaptable to a range of scenarios and offers a great trade-off between application-level parameters like distance range.

Time-of-Flight cameras
Time-of-Flight cameras capture 3D information by illuminating an object with infrared light and measuring the light phase shift to determine distance to each pixel of the image on the object. ToF cameras are similar to laser range scanners (LIDAR), except that a ToF camera images the whole simultaneously in real time with no moving parts. ToF cameras operate like thousands of combined laser rangers with each pixel acting as a ranging device. They offer fast imaging and high lateral resolution combined with the depth information of the scene being grabbed.
