Moore’s Law for ToF Pixels

Moore’s Law for ToF Pixels

In 1975, Gordon Moore made a prediction which has now become known as Moore’s Law. It stated that the number of transistors in a microchip doubles every two years, thereby exponentially increasing the processing power or speed every two years (or 18 months depending on the source) (Figure 1). This prediction has been quite accurate to date. But now, there is a new prediction that this law may soon apply to time-of-flight (ToF) image sensors for cameras as well.

If Moore's Law does apply to ToF pixels, then the technology could improve by 4 times in just six years, and more advanced 3D imaging capabilities would become possible. However, it's worth noting that this prediction is not certain, and it remains to be seen if ToF sensors will indeed follow the pattern described by Moore's Law.
