Teledyne e2v in France is working with a Canadian company on angular pixels for low cost 3D imaging sensors.

The technology and design collaboration with Airy3D in Montreal, Canada on a low-cost, low power, passive, 2 megapixel global shutter sensor which produces both 2D images and 3D depth maps.

The Topaz5D is a 1,920 x 1,080 resolution sensor built in Teledyne e2v’s proprietary CMOS technology with specific 3D post-processing optical layers. It uses 2.5 μm pixels that use an ‘angular sensitive pixel’ technology to generate RAW 3D data for real-time software processing of 3D depth maps, developed with Airy3D.

“Airy3D uniquely combines our patented optically Transmissive Diffraction Mask (TDM) design and deep software processing know-how, enabling our partners to add value to their products. Teledyne e2v’s image sensor design, production and supply chain expertise are paramount in introducing these novel 3D solutions to the market and this initiative is a key milestone for us,” said Chris Barrett, CEO of Airy3D,

The Topaz5D sensor is housed in a Chip Scale Packaging (CSP) for space limited mobile applications.

“We’re very excited to have collaborated with Airy3D on the development of Topaz5D, our latest unique CMOS sensor. The need to deploy alternative 3D vision solutions in different industries is crucial. Teledyne e2v’s image sensor design capability coupled with Airy3D’s proven 3D technology has allowed us to develop more 3D vision products for several market segments with a reduced cost of ownership,” said Arnaud Foucher, Business Team Director at Teledyne e2v.

A Topaz5D Evaluation Kit and monochrome and color sensor samples are available now for evaluations and design.
