Description

According to the latest report by the LEDinside research division of TrendForce, titled ‘2020 Infrared Sensing Application Market Trend- Mobile 3D Sensing, LiDAR and Driver Monitoring System’, Over 10 types of high-end smartphones are expected to use 3D sensing solutions and some of them will expand the use of 3D sensing in the front and rear cameras in 2020, which will further increase the VCSEL market value. According to TrendForce, the VCSEL market scale used for 3D sensing in mobile devices will be likely to grow by 30% in 2020.

Smartphone brands will be engaging in a 'specs -contest' with their flagship devices, and 3D sensing will become an important feature in that race. 3D sensing used with front camera will provide the features include biometric authentication & mobile payment, personalized avatars & emoticons, gesture control, blur photo effect (background removal included) and augmented reality (AR). Since 2H19, 3D sensing has been equipped with rear camera to provide features like rangefinder, blur photo effect (background removal included), 3D object recognition, spatial modeling and augmented reality. 3D sensing combined with 5G transmission and AR function with gesture control to realize interactive augmented reality will welcome an indeed big opportunity.

“Over 10 types of high-end smartphones are expected to use 3D sensing solutions and some of them will expand the use of 3D sensing in the front and rear cameras in 2020, which will further increase the VCSEL market value. According to TrendForce, the VCSEL market scale used for 3D sensing in mobile devices will be likely to grow by 30% in 2020.” says TrendForce Research Manager Joanne Wu.

The 3D sensing solutions currently used in the consumer market are structured light, time-of-flight (ToF) and active stereo vision.

  • 1. Structured Light acquires the image through projected light patterns, and is able to determine depth with extreme precision, though it comes with a high cost and computational complexity. Moreover, APPLE holds the patent for the technology, forming a formidable patent barrier. The product trend of structured light VCSEL will move toward for providing larger field of view, more uniform image, small package size, so the screen-to-body ratio further improves.
  • 2. Time of Flight does not enjoy the precision and depth that structured light does, but its fast reaction speeds and detection range make up for it. TOF cameras may be divided into front-facing and world-facing versions, with front-facing ToF costing more and world -facing cameras using the higher power VCSELs. Currently, indirect ToF sensing solution is widely used. Direct ToF is going to become the trend in the future, the major advantage is to save energy. Time of Flight technology will be used in APPLE, Samsung Electronics, Huawei, SONY, etc.
  • 3. Active Stereo Vision calculates depth information by using two or more than two cameras to collect images simultaneously and comparing the differences between images got at the same time. Google Pixel 4 adopts active stereo vision, which can be seen that Google overcomes the precision problem of hardware module with higher software calibration ability compared to other competitors in the industry. Likewise, active stereo vision uses dot projector and flood illuminator, but the technical complexity and cost of VCSEL are greatly reduced compared to structured light technology.

As APPLE owns comprehensive structured light patent of hardware and software to provide the highest safety. Regarding facial recognition, the effect of Front Facing ToF is not as good as that of Structured Light. Thus, some mobile vendors are looking for the best solutions in the market.

Major VCSEL-related companies currently include Lumentum, Finisar, OSRAM's Vixar, ams, Lite-on Technology, WIN Semiconductors Corp., Advanced Wireless Semiconductor Company (AWSC), Visual Photonics Epitaxy Co., Ltd. (VPEC), etc. But the new supplier is likely to appear as function applications increase from front camera to rear camera.

According to the latest report by the LEDinside research division of TrendForce, titled "2020 Infrared Sensing Application Market Trend- Mobile 3D Sensing, LiDAR and Driver Monitoring System," in 2020, market attention will focus on infrared sensing applications including mobile devices 3D sensing, LiDAR, driver monitoring system, optical communication, SWIR and broadband IR market potential, 1D ToF and proximity sensor and more.

LEDinside concentrated on major infrared sensing application markets mentioned above, discussed and analyzed market size, opportunity and challenge, product specification and supply chain from the prospective of terminal application requirements, with an aim to provide a more comprehensive understanding of IR sensing application markets for readers.
