Semiconductor technology that helps remote work in light of the COVID-19 pandemic is on the rise.

Netherlands start-up Aura Aware and STMicroelectronics recently developed a distance measuring mobile device that uses time of light (ToF) technology. ToF uses the time it takes for a light to bounce back to measure distances for sensors.

The pair said the technology can be used for touchless vending machines and water taps.

Infineon recently launched a system that can check visitors without making contact. It uses its Xensiv 60GHz radar sensor technology. The system can be installed in stores and public buildings. Infineon said it expected to ship some 90 million units of them and is expected to show off a new version next month.

NXP Semiconductor, the world leader in near field communication (NFC), is supplying its Bluetooth and Wi-Fi supporting tag called NTAG. 

Toshiba Tech is developing an infrared sensor that can be used to order food. The sensors will be installed on tablets with menus projected on them. Those ordering can point to their choice which then the sensor will detect.

Intel is providing its Xeon processors that South Korean vendors are using for security cameras. Hanwha was using them for its artificial intelligence (AI) camera that can check whether people are wearing face masks.
