New ISOCELL Vizion sensors

Samsung Electronics has expanded its ISOCELL Vizion sensor lineup by introducing 2 new sensors designed for advanced content platforms such as robotics and augmented reality (XR).

ISOCELL Vizion 63D is an iToF sensor with integrated hardware image signal processor (ISP) with depth sensing and ISOCELL Vizion 931 is a global shutter sensor. These sensors, first introduced in 2020, are part of Samsung's initiative to provide enhanced visualization capabilities for a wide range of applications.

As a ToF sensor, the ISOCELL Vizion 63D is capable of capturing high-resolution 3D images with the finest detail, utilizing the ability to measure distance and depth by calculating the time taken for light to travel to and from objects, similar to echolocation used by bats.

Samsung's ISOCELL Vizion 63D is a time-of-flight (iToF) sensor that uses a method of measuring the phase shift between emitted and reflected light to perceive the environment in three dimensions. With its compact design, the ISOCELL Vizion 63D is ideal for portable and mobile devices. By utilizing backscatter technology (BST) to improve light absorption, the Vizion 63D sensor achieves the industry's highest quantum efficiency of 38% at an infrared wavelength of 940 nanometers (nm). This enhancement increases light sensitivity, reduces noise and improves image quality with minimal motion blur.

The ISOCELL Vizion 931 is specifically designed to eliminate the "jelly effect" when capturing fast motion. Differing from the sequential scanning of rolling shutter sensors, which move line by line from top to bottom, global shutter sensors capture the entire scene at once, which is similar to the perception of the human eye.

Both sensors are already being shipped to original equipment manufacturers (OEMs), Samsung confirmed, although the company did not disclose pricing.
