Automotive LiDAR ICs
Automotive-grade LiDAR products safely solve ADAS distance measurement challenges. Transimpedance amplifiers and ultra-fast comparators combine with protection ICs, supervisors, and voltage references in the design of innovative LiDAR modules while offering high reliability in small form factor products.
With safety as the main driver in ADAS applications, a wide range of supervisory products and protection ICs make the full LiDAR module more robust and reliable. Our automotive-qualified LiDAR solutions include microprocessors and high-accuracy supervisor window voltage monitors with watchdog timers. These supervisors set thresholds and reset timeout delays without external resistors or capacitors saving additional board area in space-constrained environments.
Automotive LiDAR Featured Products
Transimpedance Amplifier with 100mA Input Current Clamp for Automotive LiDARMAX40660
Small 3x3 TDFN with wide 490MHz bandwidth captures road condition detail and low 2.1pA/√Hz noise density reduces signal distortion and misinterpretation.
3.5V to 36V Ideal Diode Controllers with Voltage and Current Circuit BreakerMAX16141/MAX16141A
Mitigates high-voltage transient spikes, fast (0.3µs typ) shutdown response prevents reverse currents, and 5μA (typ) shutdown current reduces battery drain.
280ps High-Speed Comparator, Ultra-Low Dispersion with LVDS OutputsMAX40026
10ps overdrive delay at 20mV to 100mV output drive (dispersion) for 0.018cm time-of-flight measurement error in 2mm x 2mm TDFN.
