Semtech's LiDAR

Depth Sensing Technology

What Is LiDAR?

LiDAR (light detection and ranging) is the sensing of depth using laser light. The laser light is scanned across an object, and the difference in the time of flight between the transmitted and the reflected light provides a map of depth points.


How Does Semtech Enable LiDAR Technology?

Semtech’s programmable laser drivers and transimpedence amplifiers (TIAs) are suited for Time of Flight (ToF) LiDAR systems. These devices achieve new levels of high resolution and range in LiDAR systems by optimizing bandwidth, noise and power configurations.
