Key Features of the New Product
1. Simultaneous Output of Depth Data (Depth Map) and Deep Focus Image
The TCM9518MD’s twin cameras and dedicate companion LSI simultaneously deliver deep focus images in which foreground and background and all points in between are in focus, with depth data on each object in the image. This supports creation of new applications for smartphone, tablets and mobile devices, including refocus, defocus and extraction of any objects of the images, and gesture operation.
2. Output of 13-Megapixel Image
The companion LSI generates 13-megapixel photographs by upscaling images captured by the twin 5-megapixel cameras. This will contribute to downsizing of mobile devices.
3. Digital Focus Function
Most of auto focus camera modules for smartphones deploy a mechanical focus structure, moving the lens with motors like VCM3. It can take time to focus and also result shutter lag. TCM9518MD offers a non-mechanical digital focus function without mechanical structure, allowing high speed focus by calculating the depth to any objects4. It also realizes a lower module height.
