Teledyne e2v introduces industry's first 1.3MP Time-of-Flight sensor

Teledyne e2v Bora

New Bora 3D CMOS image sensor enables vision-guided robotics, logistics and surveillance

Teledyne e2v announces its new Bora Time-of-Flight CMOS image sensor, tailored for 3D detection and distance measurement to support the latest industrial applications, including vision guided robotics, logistics and surveillance.

Teledyne e2v - Bora

Based on an innovative 10 µm pixel design and incorporating a resolution of 1280 × 1024 pixels, the Bora image sensor offers excellent sensitivity and a unique on-chip gated global shutter mode, which enables gating times of up to 42 ns.

Bora’s highly flexible design allows:

  • Greater adaptability to various scenarios, with precise 3D information detection and state-of-the-art 1.3 MP depth resolution
  • Scene capture with a large field-of-view in both 2D and 3D which enables cost effectiveness and system optimization, useful for static applications such as construction or architectural mapping
  • Real-time 3D image capture with a depth map of over 30 fps in a four-phase operation
  • Robust reliability in challenging conditions, and short- and long-range capabilities which are immune to ambient light intrusions, using a unique HDR feature

The Bora sensor comes with an evaluation kit, comprised of a compact 1-inch optical format calibrated module, which includes a light source for near infrared illumination. It also includes optics targeted at performing the Time-of-Flight principle at short-range distances to 5 m or mid-range distances to 10 m, while capturing real-time 3D information at a full resolution of 1.3 MP.
