Drawing on a growing range of surface-mount devices, Excelitas Technologies supplies photon detectors and emitters that meet all requirements of LiDAR distance measurement OEMs. The portfolio features suitable products for advanced autonomous vehicle solutions across the general automotive sector and other fields such as self-organizing logistics systems. Robust SMDs from Excelitas are made for automated pick-and-place in high-throughput assembly lines. Standout products include C30737MH silicon avalanche photodiodes (APDs) that provide high responsivity between 500 nm and 1000 nm and extremely fast rise times at all wavelengths. Two standard designs are available, optimized for 800 nm and 900 nm and with active area diameters of 230 µm and 500 µm. The manufacturer offers optional bandwidth, wavelength, and active area customization for OEMs, enabling them to ensure perfect compatibility with laser sources and optics to achieve the required range and performance. Operating voltage ranges can also be customized to improve gain uniformity in systems using more than one APD. At a compact footprint of just 2 mm x 1.75 mm, C30737MH APDs are ideally suited for such designs. Excelitas’ 1×4 pulsed laser diode array is another customizable SMD LiDAR component. The 1×4 linear configuration minimizes space requirements in comparison to single-pixel lasers and enables the use of smaller, less costly optical components. Each laser pixel can have up to four emitting stripes, resulting in very high per-channel optical power levels in excess of 85 W for long-range detection with minimal power consumption. These lasers can sustain large reverse voltage levels and can be supplied with drive electronics that allow for rise times below 1 ns and pulse widths below 5 ns. Customizable parameters include the number of elements, element spacing, stripe width, channel power output, and package footprint. Another component in the Excelitas‘ SMD lineup, 905 nm single-chip pulsed semiconductor lasers produce very high optical pulses centered at a wavelength of 905 nm. The patented, ultra-compact lasers can emit light in a perpendicular or parallel orientation to the mounting plane. They achieve a higher beam placement accuracy than lead-frame, plastic packaged lasers at comparable price points. Looking forward, Excelitas has a growing solution offering in the array space, including pulsed laser diodes, PINs, and APDs. These monolithic arrays enable higher resolution LiDAR systems while maintaining all the benefits of single-channel components. In addition, the manufacturer also supplies drive electronics as well as readout electronics. All of the above products are assembled and tested in Excelitas’ high-volume, IATF-16949-certified facilities.
