Analog Devices LIDAR Solutions

High performance signal processing is the core of Analog Devices. We are endlessly challenging ourselves to develop innovative designs to reduce your time to market and help your systems perform at the leading edge. Our advanced portfolio of LIDAR Technology products enables the highest performance LIDAR systems.

LIDAR, which stands for Light Detection and Ranging, is a depth perception method which transmits a light source to do either ranging or create multidimensional depth maps of the scene of interest.

ADI’s signal processing solutions directly enhance the capabilities of LIDAR systems. ADI’s product portfolio offers low noise Transimpedance Amplifiers, DACs and Comparators, high speed multi-channel ADC’s in the GS/s, and a host of power products for sensitive power management architectures.

Delivering value in key application areas

Automotive Application

Automotive

Automotive safety and driver assistance can be greatly enhanced by LIDAR. Applications include collision avoidance, blind side detection, emergency braking, adaptive cruise control, dynamic suspension control, and parking assist.

Learn about how LIDAR is a key pillar in autonomous driving solutions.

ADEF Application

Aerospace & Defense

Unmanned aerial vehicles (UAV or drones) can use LIDAR for altimetry, dynamic flight control, object detection and tracking, and collision avoidance.

Security & Surveillance Application

Security & Surveillance

In the transportation and security industries, object detection and tracking, and people counting are critical for safety and efficient workflow. LIDAR provides the technology necessary to fulfill these applications in a cost-effective manner, providing more surveillance at a lower cost, and with less human intervention.

Industry 4.0 Application

Industry 4.0

Factory and warehouse floors can be dangerous places. With many moving parts such as robotic arms and Autonomous Ground Vehicles (AGVs) (bots or mobile robots), LIDAR can measure the distance from system to the object of interest, rerouting to avoid collisions and even shutting down if a safety hazard is detected. In autonomous applications such as forklifts, LIDAR solutions could be used as safety curtains. In Smart IoT, LIDAR can be used for cargo fill estimation in long haul trucking and delivery vehicles.

See how LIDAR is playing an important role in Functional safety.

The Evolution of the JESD204 Standard

JESD204 Serial Interface

The JESD204 and the JESD204B revision data converter serial interface standard was created through the JEDEC committee to standardize and reduce the number of data inputs/outputs between high-speed data converters and other devices, such as FPGAs (field-programmable gate arrays).
