SHENZHEN, China, and SAN JOSE, Calif., September 16, 2021 - Shenzhen Oradar Technology Co., Ltd. (“Oradar”), a leading automotive 3D vision sensor provider in China, and Lumentum(NASDAQ: LITE), a market-leading designer and manufacturer of innovative optical and photonic products, today announced their live demonstration of next-generation LiDAR technology at the China International Optoelectronic Expo (CIOE) 2021 in Shenzhen, China.
As a leading LiDAR and automotive 3D vision sensor solution provider in China, Oradar has launched several LiDAR and automotive 3D time-of-flight (TOF) products. Oradar has recently demonstrated an all-solid-state LiDAR technology with no moving parts, which integrates single-photon avalanche detector (SPAD) array technology with Lumentum’s addressable multi-junction vertical-cavity surface-emitting laser (VCSEL) array technology.
“Lumentum has deep technical capabilities in the VCSEL field. Oradar has extensive experience in LiDAR system architecture design, hardware, software, and algorithms development. Prior to this, the companies have had deep contact and established a good foundation for cooperation,” said Oradar CEO, Yan Min. “Through this cooperation, we will jointly break through the key bottlenecks in the architecture design, performance, and parameters of the core components of LiDAR. We will promote LiDAR sensors into large-scale mass production in the robotics and automotive industries."
“Lumentum’s addressable multi-junction VCSEL array technology enables industry-leading performance and unique, new, all solid-state LiDAR architectures, such as in our demonstration with Oradar,” said Lumentum Senior Director of Sales, Mark Ji. “We are excited to bring another disruptive VCSEL array-based solution to the market which leverages our unparalleled photonic technology and capabilities.”
