Mouser Electronics now shipping ams TMF8801-EVM eval kit for ToF distance sensing

Mouser Electronics now shipping ams TMF8801-EVM eval kit for ToF distance sensing

Mouser Electronics is now stocking the TMF8801-EVM evaluation kit from ams. The TMF8801-EVM allows engineers to evaluate the operation of the ams TMF8801 1D time-of-flight (ToF) sensor for applications such as smartphones, industrial robotics, and autonomous appliances.

The ams TMF8801-EVM, available from Mouser Electronics, includes a ToF sensor enclosure and sample glass, USB type A to micro-USB cable, USB flash drive with EVM GUI software, and EVM documentation.

The onboard TMF8801 ToF sensor offers highly accurate depth accuracy detection through a sub-nanosecond light pulse and an anti-aliasing “stop-watch” method to measure round-trip time of the pulse. The TMF8801 provides single-zone detection of an object irrespective of the color, reflectivity, and texture. This single module with VCSEL emitter offers high dynamic range and detection sensing measurements with a 20 mm to 2500 mm distance range. This device utilises highly sensitive single-photon avalanche diode (SPAD) detection with fast compact time-to-digital converters to make highly accurate distance measurements within ±5 percent and is capable of operation in both dark environments and in the presence of sunlight.

At just 2.2 mm × 3.6 mm × 1.0 mm, the TMF8801 is more than 30 percent smaller than other ToF sensors on the market, making it ideal for compact, space-constrained designs in applications such as laser detect auto-focus (LDAF), presence detection, industrial ranging, object and collision avoidance, fast ranging navigation detection, and inventory control.
