Shape from Shading extended for high speeds
Our previous Shape from Shading CIS sensors were often limited in speed by the amount of light available. We have advanced the illumination control with a completely new approach so that we can provide up to four times the amount of light without compromising the LED lifetime. The Shape from Shading CIS can now be used up to web speeds of almost 2 meters per second. Even higher speeds are possible if the downstream image processing can also handle non-square pixels.
