The AFBR-S50MV85G is Broadcom's multipixel distance and motion measurement sensor based on the optical time-of-flight principle. It supports up to 3000 frames per second with up to 16 illuminated pixels. This sensor has been developed with a special focus on industrial sensing applications and gesture sensing with the need for high speed, small size, and very low power consumption. Through its best-in-class ambient light suppression of up to 200k lux, its use in outside environments is no problem.
The technology has been optimized to measure distances up to 10 m (black target). It works equally well on white, black, colored, and metallic reflective surfaces. The module has an integrated 850 nm laser light source and uses a single voltage supply of 5 V; the data is transferred via a digital SPI interface.
