TMF8801AMS AG TMF8801 time-of-flight sensor

The TMF8801 is a robust true direct time-of-flight (ToF) sensor system.

The TMF8801 is a robust true direct time-of-flight (ToF) sensor system that offers highly accurate depth accuracy detection through a sub-nanosecond light pulse and an antialiasing “stop-watch” method to measure round-trip time of pulse. It provides single-zone detection of an object, regardless of the color, reflectivity, and texture of the object.

An integrated microcontroller is featured with all algorithms included on-chip with no need for external optics. Ultra-compact technology use is featured through the industry‘s smallest modular package size of 2.2 x 3.6 x 1.0 mm.

Key features

  • 20 to 250 cm distance measurement
  • True Direct Time-of-Flight Measurement
  • Fast Compact Time-To-Digital Converters
  • High Accuracy Distance Measurement (5%) – 1 mm Resolution

Additional features:

  • Single-photon avalanche diode detection
  • Sub-nanosecond (< 500 psec) light pulse driver
  • Histogram based architecture
  • SoC with integrated micro-controller – all algorithms on-chip
  • Dynamic cover glass calibration
  • Dirt/smudge cover glass detection and compensation
  • Sunlight on-chip rejection filter and algorithm
  • 940 nm VCSEL Class 1 Eye Safety
  • 32 mA active mode current consumption at 30 Hz
  • I2C fast-mode compatible interface
  • Modular OLGA package with lens – 2.2 x 3.6 x 1.0 mm
