BusinessWire: Starting in March 2020, Infineon's REAL3 ToF sensor will enable the video bokeh function for the first time in a 5G-capable smartphone in moving images. Using the precise 3D point cloud algorithm and software, the received 3D image data is processed for the application. The 3D image sensor captures 940 nm infrared light reflected from the user and the scanned objects. It also uses high-level data processing to achieve accurate depth measurements.

Infineon also develops a reference design for 3D authentication based on the Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 Mobile Platform. "Today, the smartphone is more than just an information medium; it is increasingly taking over security and entertainment functions," says Andreas Urschitz, Division President Power Management & Multimarket. "3D sensors enable new uses and additional applications such as secured authentication or payment by facial recognition. We continue to focus on this market and have clear growth targets. The collaboration with Qualcomm Technologies on reference designs using REAL3 image sensors underscores the potential and our ambitions in this area."

Infineon develops the 3D ToF sensor technology in cooperation with the software and 3D time-of-flight system by pmdtechnologies AG.
