“The use of the new generation of high-speed gesture recognition, motion sensing, and natural user interface in 3D camera, interactive TVs, game consoles and a variety of other emerging applications are creating demand for the deployment of high depth resolution optical links in several high-volume markets. For example, for the natural user interface applications, there are many kinds of gesture systems competing in the market right now, with time-of-flight systems providing a very good alternative for high accuracy applications. GigOptix’ consumer TIAs are designed specifically to address time-of-flight applications and flexible architecture that allow a rapid, yet robust, customization designs. From changing channels and adjusting volume on interactive TVs with the wave of a hand, to full body 3D depth sensing cameras for a fully immersive gaming and personalized shopping experiences,
In January NPD DisplaySearch reported in their Gesture Sensing Control for Smart Devices Report that gesture sensing solutions for smart device shipments would grow from less than 250 million units in 2014, to more than 1.8 billion units in 2018. In the report, year-over-year shipment growth is projected to be over 40% in the 2015 to 2018 timeframe. 3D gesture-sensing technologies in connected smart devices identified in the report include mobile devices, smart TVs, game consoles, and PCs.
GigOptix’ consumer TIA platform can be optimized for the following applications: high resolution digital 3D scanning, hands-free automotive infotainment and range systems, immersive gaming and augmented reality, interactive TVs, desktop PCs, notebooks, gaming consoles, smartphones, tablets, and motion tracking and gesture control.
Global automotive proximity and gesture recognition of infotainment systems are estimated to grow from about 0.7 million units in 2013, to more to than 38 million units in 2023, according to IHS Inc.’s Emerging Technologies: New Human-Machine Interface Trends report. Few automotive makers have already sold in 2012 cars with basic proximity recognition systems in, and the report predicts that in 2017 the first high-resolution systems will appear. The report further estimates that nearly 40 percent of all new automobiles sold worldwide in 2023 will come with some degree of proximity or gesture recognition.
“Many high-resolution time-of-flight systems are fundamentally limited by the performance of key building blocks, in particular the TIA performance. GigOptix’ state of the art TIA family builds on years of experience in designing TIAs for the Active Optical Cables (AOCs) and pluggables for the datacom markets and delivering millions of such devices. This deep experience enables us to design and ship extremely high quality amplifiers to the emerging consumer electronics market. We look forward to working with customers to enable customization of TIA devices for the next generation innovative natural user interface systems to enrich consumer experiences,” concluded Dr. Dinu.
