direction

DEPTHIQ™ uniquely detects the direction of light

diffraction

Diffraction creates a depth signal by modulating light

raw-data

Inherently correlates & compresses raw data resulting in depth per pixel

patented optical encoder

DEPTHIQ™ uses diffraction to measure depth directly through our optical encoder (TDM) — Transmissive Diffraction Mask — designed for and applied over any CMOS image sensor.

lightweight software

Physics does the heavy lifting in our algorithm.

simple, no compromise

Without complex optics for easier integration, our solution does not degrade native 2D image quality.

passive and single-sensor

Our passive sensing mechanism uses less battery and requires no additional footprint.

total drop-in for HW & SW

No custom processors, CMOS.

runs on any hardware

Our solution is compatible with any image sensor (CMOS, CCD, FSI, BSI). Tailor TDM for sensor characteristics, multiple lens or camera types, and working ranges.

low cost

Our solution integrates with existing manufacturing processes at almost zero added cost. Gain significant savings in hardware, size, and manufacturing complexity.

Simple, affordable, and versatile

Your advantage begins here
