ON Semi To Collaborate With Korean LIDAR Start-up

News

Companies to use VCSEL light sources and sensing chips to develop and commercialise LiDARs for cars and smart factories

SOS LAB, a Korean LiDAR startup for self-driving cars, and ON Semiconductor have signed a collaboration deal to advance the development and commercialisation of LiDAR technology for the automotive and smart factory markets.

Under the agreement, both companies plan to use their respective technologies jointly to accelerate the development and commercialisation of LiDAR systems focused on the automotive and smart factory markets.

SOS LAB provides high-power VCSEL light sources and Metalens optical technology while ON Semiconductor offers high-resolution SPAD Arrays used for sensing single photons making the combination ideal for a solid-state LiDAR time-of-flight application.

ON Semiconductor provides sensing solutions for automotive and autonomous perception, with technology targeting all sensing modalities including image sensors, radar, and LiDAR.

SOS LAB C is currently focusing on developing small-scale, accurate, and affordable LiDAR sensors for self-driving cars, autonomous things, hyper automation, AI security, and other related industries.

SOS LAB, which is attending CES for the third consecutive year, has launched two types of LiDAR systems: a front long-range LiDAR (SL) using hybrid scanning technology and a side-by-side solid-state type LiDAR (ML) using big VCSEL and Metalens technology. Therefore, SOS LAB can provide a LiDAR solution that can measure front, rear, and full range for autonomous vehicles/ADAS.

JiSeong Jeong, CEO of SOS LAB. “We expect to develop (solid-state) type lidars more quickly and plan to mass-produce lidars for vehicles with built-in headlamps and bumpers within 2-3 years.”

AngelTech Online Summit is now available to watch ON-DEMAND!

AngelTech Online Summit witnessed over 900 registrants for the digital event, which took place virtually on Tuesday 19th May.

The Summit was designed to ensure the global compound semiconductor, integrated photonics, sensors and PIC pilot lines communities could stay connected and would serve as a significant supplement to the annual Brussels face-to-face conference, rescheduled for 17th and 18th November, 2020.

The event included 4 breakout sessions for CS International, PIC International, Sensors International and PIC Pilot Lines respectively.
