3D Ranging and Sensing

LiDAR (Light Detection And Ranging) technology is becoming increasingly important in a wide variety of applications, such as remote sensing, geographical information system (GIS) and in the automotive and gaming industries.

Traditionally time-of-flight range finding and LiDAR have relied on photomultiplier tubes at the upper end of the market while standard APD detectors have dominated the lower end of the market, such as portable range finders. The use of an SiPM in the portable and hand-held markets will allow users to attain performance similar to that of a photomultiplier, but at a fraction of the cost.
