One approach to the implementation of LIDAR ranging is to use MEMS-based laser beam steering. This approach is possible when the system uses ams VCSEL laser emitters, which have a high-quality beam.
It is also possible to implement a design that has no moving parts using addressable VCSEL laser emitter arrays from ams.
VCSEL emitters from ams, which can turn on and off at very high speed, enable distance measurement at tightly focussed target areas.
- Addressable high count VCSEL arrays enabling solid state architecture
- Very high power VCSEL arrays
- Low beam divergence for long range operations
