LIDAR

LiDAR is a critical element in the fusion of sensor modalities required to enable L3-L5 autonomous driving. LiDAR provides high-resolution depth data, enabling object identification capabilities that are not possible with radar or cameras alone. ON Semiconductor is at the forefront of sensor technology and other system elements that enable the next generation of LiDAR systems. Our core sensor technology is sensitive to individual photons while also being able to operate in direct ambient sunlight conditions. Silicon Photomultipliers (SiPMs) are detectors built on Single Photon Avalanche Diodes (SPADs) to allow for systems to range to the most distant objects, even when they are minimally reflective. SPAD arrays are time-of-flight image sensors that allow for high-resolution 4D imaging, capturing depth data and intensity simultaneously from all of the points in the scene. Alongside key sensor technology and system components, ON Semiconductor offers wide-ranging LiDAR design support materials.
