Samsung introduced 2 new generation ISOCELL sensors for AR/VR headsets

by alex

Samsung has released two new sensors, ISOCELL Vizion 63D and ISOCELL Vizion 931, promising to improve AR (augmented reality), VR (virtual) reality) headsets and even smartphones. Each sensor offers opportunities to enhance the virtual and augmented experience and solves different image and depth data capture problems.

ISOCELL Vizion 63D

This is a 3D ToF (Time-of-Flight) sensor with a 1/6.4-inch sensor size and 3.5μm pixels, measuring depth and distance with high precision. It can shoot QVGA (320×240) resolution image at 30fps and VGA (640×480) resolution video.

The sensor is also the first in the industry to feature an integrated ISP for depth sensing, eliminating the need for a separate chip and reducing power consumption by 40% compared to previous models. Thanks to backscattering technology, it has high light absorption and low noise.

In addition, ISOCELL Vizion has two modes – full and spot – which allow you to optimize resolution and range depending on the situation. The former prioritizes short-range resolution, while spot mode increases range at the expense of resolution.

It's a global shutter sensor, which captures entire scenes at once, as opposed to rolling shutter sensors, which scan line by line and can introduce motion blur. This sensor has a resolution of 640×640 and is suitable for applications such as iris detection, eye tracking and face/gesture recognition in headsets.

The manufacturer boasts the industry's highest quantum efficiency for its infrared light wavelength, which should provide clearer images. This sensor can connect four cameras with one wire, which simplifies circuit design and saves space.

Both sensors are being tested by device manufacturers and are expected to be used in Samsung's future mixed reality headset and other AR/VR devices.
