Research and Markets has announced the addition of the "Lenovo3D
Time of Flight (ToF) Camera: Technology and Cost Analysis"
report to their offering.
Recently, camera modules in smartphones have evolved rapidly. All major
players have adopted dual cameras. Now, with the Phab2Pro, Lenovo is the
first to choose a different approach. As augmented reality plays a
bigger part in consumer life, Lenovo is integrating a 3D Time-of-Flight
(ToF) camera. The module features three cameras: one with high
resolution, a global shutter motion detector and a Near Infra-Red (NIR)
The Lenovo Phab2Pro brings totally new functionality based on the Google
Tango Project. This project, a collaboration including Infineon, pmd and
Sunny Optical, has developed 3D ToF sensors for consumer applications.
The Phab2Pro implements this technology using a tri-camera sensor. The
subsystem features a 16 megapixel resolution CMOS image sensor (CIS)
from Samsung, a VGA resolution CIS with global shutter technology from
Omnivision, and a 38 kilopixel resolution 3D Image Sensor from the
collaboration between Infineon and pmd integrated into a subsystem with
a NIR vertical-cavity surface-emitting laser (VCSEL).
To provide the 3D scene, the tri-camera's high-resolution camera
supplies the texture and the global shutter camera supplies the
motion-tracking. Finally, the ToF sensor supplies the depth perception
at a high rate thanks to the VCSEL emitter, which gives the phone the
ability to understand space and motion quickly, like a human.
The report includes technology and cost analysis of the 3D ToF sensor
and technology analyses of the two other modules. These analyses provide
the technical intelligence necessary to understand this technology.
