Features and specs:

  • Specifically designed for mobile devices, where most applications only need a resolution of 38,000 pixels.
  • Small sensor chip area
  • Each sensor chip features microlenses
  • The chips operate with infrared light and use the time-of-flight (ToF) measuring principle

The IRS1125C will be available in volume as of first quarter of 2016. The IRS1645C and IRS1615C are slated for the second quarter of 2016.
