Complete Receiver Front End for a LiDAR SoC
SAN JOSE, Calif., – Oct 26, 2021 – Omni Design Technologies, a leading provider of high-performance, ultra-low-power mixed-signal Intellectual Property (IP) solutions, today announced a LiDAR receiver subsystem that is available in FinFET to 28nm process nodes. This highly integrated multi-channel LiDAR subsystem combines multi-giga-sample analog-to-digital (ADC) converters, trans-impedance amplifiers (TIA), and other signal chain IP to process the return signal from the photodiode to the digital interface within a LiDAR SoC.
The highly integrated LiDAR subsystem is easily configurable for number of signal processing channels, ADC resolutions, and sampling rates: signal processing channels: 4 to 32; ADC resolutions: 8, 10 or 12 bits; sampling rates: few Msps to 5Gsps. The subsystem includes a reconfigurable ultra-low power, low-noise analog receiver frontend (RxFE) that sits between the ADC and the off-chip photodiode. It also includes an integrated PLL, bandgap reference, and LDOs to implement the comprehensive analog signal processing solution.
“We deliver complete subsystems, including our ultra-low-power data converter IP cores, to accelerate product development in advanced process nodes,” said Dr. Kush Gulati, President and CEO of Omni Design Technologies. “Multiple market-leading customers have successfully integrated our LiDAR subsystem with their digital SoC to deliver better performing, lower power consuming LiDAR products at competitive price points.”
