Seeing is Believing, Sensing is Knowing.

Brookman Technology's Time-of-Flight CMOS image sensor

Key technology



Indirect ToF sensing with Short pulse modulation

Comparison of Continous Wave modulation and Short Pulse modulation




    Merit of Short Pulse Modulation method
  • Decrease Light Source Power Consumption
  • Increase Ambient Light Tolerance
  • Digitally Controlled Light Modulation (Flexibility for light pulse number, width, switching, etc.)


Optimized CMOS-ToF Sensor and Operation

Dynamic Ambient Light Suppression (DALS) with 3-tap pixel CMOS-ToF sensor



ToF measurement with SPM method per frame
(Signal Integration)



Results of In-frame ambient light cancellation by DALS technology




Comparison of Ambient light cancelling Video


In-frame Cancelling by DALS
(BT-ToF cancelling method: SP type)

Cancelling with Consecutive frames
(Conventional cancelling method: CW type)


    Merit of 3-tap structure pixel and optimized operation method
  • High Ambient Light Tolerance (by DALS technology)
  • Minimize Motion Defects (DALS operation works every in-frame)
  • Wide Measurement Range (with in-frame range shift technique)
