June 11, 2015 – LeddarTech announced LeddarCore photodetector sensor ICs for the development and production of high-volume applications.. Combining LeddarCore with a photodetector, a pulsed light source and optical elements will allow innovators to develop new applications with stringent requirements, such as high reliability, small footprint, cost-effectiveness, low power consumption and robustness. Powered by Leddar’s signal processing, LeddarCore aims at delivering a new level of performance at a lower cost than currently available alternatives.
The Leddar technology enables high-efficiency optical detection and ranging devices. Sensors incorporating LeddarCore will benefit from three unique advantages:
- High sensitivity, enabling the detection of objects reflecting a very weak light signal, and providing superior range-to-power ratio for consistent performance over both short and long range;
- Immunity to noise and lighting conditions, for robust detection capabilities in harsh or changing environments and in low visibility situations;
- Signal processing, delivering rapid and accurate measurements of multiple targets simultaneously as well as greater spatial awareness within the sensor’s field of view.
Offered in single- or multiple-photodetector element configurations, LeddarCore comes with development tools, including an evaluation board, reference design, sample code, and signal processing libraries. Software tools and documentation are also provided to facilitate configuration, tuning and calibration. With the small size and weight of a chipset and all the advantages of the Leddar sensing technology.
“Our LeddarCore offering arrives at a perfect time as needs for sensors are exploding exponentially, from smart homes to smart cities, from drones to cars, and from dedicated industrial applications to the Internet of Things (IoT). Packaging our highly-effective Leddar technology in an IC format opens up a whole new world of possibilities and provides our clients with optimal flexibility in terms of design as well as manufacturability.” explained Charles Boulanger, CEO at LeddarTech.
“Today’s developers, system integrators and OEMs yearn for highly-adaptable sensing devices like LeddarCore,” said Sonia Bélanger, Vice-President of Sales and Marketing at LeddarTech. “We foresee a big demand for large volumes of sensor cores to supply the next industrial revolution in which smart applications will be key. Estimates of the number of interconnected devices from the advent of Internet of Things applications never cease to rise, making innovations like LeddarCore as relevant as they can get.” she adds.
