Lensless Smart Sensors FAQ
The Rambus lensless smart sensor (LSS) technology is a fundamentally new approach to sensing that shifts the function of traditional optics to computation, eliminating the need for expensive lenses. By utilizing a set of diffractive gratings, the LSS captures input data without the use of a lens, producing raw data that is optimized through a series of algorithms to make decisions on the scene.
LSS combines diffractive optics with optimized algorithms to capture input data with a single ultra-miniature pattern. By being able to capture this level of data, the smart sensor can re-create scenes through computations and deliver the best in power, package, and price.
