LIDAR is crucial for the success of advanced driver assistence (ADAS) and autonomous driving. Light is used to scan surroundings with all relevant objects. For one of our customers, we designed an integrated circuit for advanced driver assistence (ADAS), based on MEMS mirror technology.
Our IC controls and drives the MEMS mirror. Challenge for this chip was accurately detecting the position of the mirror.
Our solution: by actuation and sensing using the same capacity of the mirror, our customer could benefit from a smaller size of the mirror and a huge cost reduction.
