What is DIS?

DIS stands for depth image sensor.

By measuring electrostatic capacity, DIS can detect depth.

This is a new type of depth sensor that detects depth by measuring electrostatic capacity. Because it uses electric detection, it allows of scanning of high-speed, high-resolution images without noise. Our newly developed depth detection IC allowed us to achieve miniaturization (W26mm, T17mm), and it outputs an analog signal according to depth using an interface similar to CIS. Each element is arranged in a line in high density (50 DPI) with the scanning width of A4 size, so it can scan tape on bills, overlapping of bills, special ink ingredients, etc. as an image of depth.

Features of DIS

Detecting thickness of bill with tape on it

DIS:Detecting thickness of bill with tape on it

By detecting slight changes in capacitance, it is possible for DIS to view special inks, overlapping printed patterns, difficult-to-see tape and other such elements.

Application Examples of DIS

  • Thin material with minute changes in thickness, like tape, water, oil or wrinkles on paper.
