Broadcom AFBR-S50LV85D time-of-flight sensor module

The AFBR-S50LV85D is the new addition to Broadcom’s Time of Flight (ToF) sensor family

The AFBR-S50LV85D is the new addition to Broadcom’s Time of Flight (ToF) sensor family and has been developed with a special focus on industrial sensing applications for large distances of typical up to 30 m. The module has an integrated 850 nm laser light source, and due to a 2° x 2° emission cone, it can typically use 1 to 3 pixels, depending on distance and remission of the measured object. It is an ideal solution for industrial sensing applications over large distances up to 30 m, typically.

Key features

  • Integrated 850 nm laser light source
  • Field-of-View (FoV) of 12.4° x 6.2° with 32 pixels
  • Typical distance range up to 30 m
  • Works well on all surface types

Additional features

  • Transmitter beam of 2° x 2° to illuminate between 1 and 3 pixels
  • Reference pixel for system health monitoring
  • Measurement rates of up to 3 kHz
  • Unambiguous range up to 100 m with dual-frequency mode
  • Operation of up to 200 klx ambient light
  • Single voltage supply 5 V, typical 33 mA
  • Integrated voltage and temperature sensors
  • Integrated clock source
  • Laser Class 1 eye-safe ready
  • Drop-in compatible within the AFBR-S50 sensor platform


  • Distance measurement
  • Security surveillance
  • Robotics
  • Human-machine interfaces
  • Automation and control
  • Inventory monitoring
