Consumer-oriented LiDAR Solution Expands Use Cases

Commercializing advanced technologies is a rising tide that lifts all boats, as any given tech is only as good as the ability to apply it to a purpose. Every advanced tech, from the laser to DSPs, started out as stand-alone products before convergence brought them into more advanced integrated systems. Only by having high levels of integration can an advanced solution, for any application, offer the performance and functionality now expected in the marketplace.

传感系统也在经历一波演化变革。我们现在不仅将多个传感器集成到单个产品中,也将它们的信息集成到最先进的解决方案中,例如自动驾驶汽车和系统。通过这种数据集成,可以更智能地解释观测系统的周围情况。这被称为传感器融合,因为它不仅仅是将一堆传感器放在一个封包中。

不断发展的传感器子系统涉及视觉等光学解决方案,尤其是物体识别能力很强的光探测和测距 (LiDAR)。但传统的 LiDAR 解决方案相当复杂且昂贵,因为所涉及的核心技术仍在不断演进。

Semtech 与 Intel® 合作开发用于 LiDAR 解决方案的光学半导体平台,这是商业化推动功能进步的又一个例子。公司的激光驱动器和可编程跨阻放大器 (TIA) 集成到 Intel RealSense™ LiDAR 摄像头 L515 中,支持节能、高分辨率的消费级 LiDAR 解决方案的开发。

Intel RealSense 技术和 Semtech 信号完整性产品事业部合作,致力于使 L515 摄像头能够在信噪比 (SNR) 非常低的环境中工作。TIA 具有低等效输入噪声 (IRN),使得 L515 LiDAR 摄像头的分辨率高达每秒 2300 万深度点。

Features of the camera include high-precision depth capability and an error of less than 16mm at max operating range. Along with high-frequency laser modulation, it can sense objects as small as 7mm diameter from up to 1 meter away (Figure 2). To get a better understanding of what the collaboration and its results means to the industry, we spoke to Simon McCaul, Senior Market Manager for Semtech’s signal integrity product group.
