Infineon launches 3-D sensor for gesture recognition

LONDON – Infineon Technologies AG (Munich, Germany) has introduced a family of 3-D image sensor chips designed to implement touchless gesture recognition. The sensors have been developed in cooperation with fabless chip company PMD Technologies GmbH (Siegen, Germany), a specialist in CMOS-based time-of-flight imaging sensors. The chips are the first to combine a 3-D image sensing pixel array with the digital conversion and control functionality needed to design compact and accurate monocular systems for gesture recognition, Infineon said. The Infineon 3-D image sensor chips will enable fast and reliable tracking of finger movements and hand gestures to complement today’s touch screen and mouse or stylus user interfaces. It currently includes two members: the IRS1010C has a resolution of 160 by 120 pixels and the IRS1020C which has a resolution of 352 by 288 pixels. Both ar...
