Xbox Kinect

The Xbox one is a complex piece of equipment. The Kinect uses a 1080p wide-angle time-of-flight camera, and processes 2 gigabits of data per second to read its environment. [3] The Xbox one Kinect is better then its predecessor, it can track up to six people and can even scan codes to redeem Xbox Live gift cards.
Inside the Kinect there is a circuit board that contains a power block, a triple output laser diode driver, a power metal-oxide-semiconductor field-effect transistor (MOSFET), a dynamic random-access memory (DRAM), a red, green, blue (RBG) camera, an infrared camera, and many more components defined in the following section.

Xbox Kinect: Hardware

The ISL58303 is a high-speed triple output laser diode driver designed to support laser light source from Pico projection modules. [4] This driver supports HFM (High Frequency Modulation and has a high frequency modulation input to modulate laser
