Omni Design, LeddarTech to Accelerate Mass Market Deployment of LiDAR for ADAS, AV

Reading time ( words)

Omni Design Technologies, a leading provider of high-performance, low-power mixed-signal intellectual property (IP) products, and LeddarTech®, a global leader in Level 1-5 ADAS and AD sensing technology, announced their collaboration in next-generation LiDAR SoCs that will enable LiDAR manufacturers to design their solid-state LiDAR products for various end markets.

LeddarTech’s LiDAR SoC integrates analog-to-digital converters (ADC) and a multi-channel analog front-end (AFE) from Omni Design. This SoC will reduce the product development cycle for LiDAR manufacturers and accelerate the path to volume manufacturing of solid-state LiDARs that meet functional safety (ISO 26262 ASIL-B) and reliability (AEC-Q100) requirements.

Many LiDAR manufacturers use discrete devices on a printed circuit board for their prototype and low-volume LiDAR products and need a more integrated solution for their next-generation products. This collaboration integrates Omni Design’s high-performance mixed-signal IP into LeddarTech’s SoC, which is essential to enable mass production of solid-state LiDAR products that meet: 

  • Stringent automotive requirements
  • Exceptional performance
  • Lower power consumption
  • Lower cost
  • Smaller form factor
  • Faster time-to-market

“LeddarTech differentiates itself in the market with our sensing technology and our SoC portfolio, which has been deployed with automotive Tier 1/2s as a basis to develop a scalable LiDAR solution for OEMs. In addition, LeddarVision™, our sensor fusion and perception technology, has provided the platform to enable third-party LiDAR integration in the perception stack,” said Mr. Charles Boulanger, CEO of LeddarTech. “We are delighted to be partnering with Omni Design to integrate their IP cores in the next generation of the LeddarCore™ SoC for LiDAR manufacturers as a solution to accelerate their design.”

“Omni Design is delivering high-performance data converters in advanced process nodes to enable the next generation of products in automotive, 5G, and AI markets,” said Dr. Kush Gulati, President and CEO of Omni Design Technologies. “We are pleased to be collaborating with LeddarTech on their next-generation LiDAR SoC to enable mass deployment of solid-state LiDAR in the automotive market by automotive Tier 1s and other LiDAR makers.”
