Scantinel Photonics is devoted in the development of next-generation solid-state FMCW sensing, focusing on using its proprietary FMCW technology to provide new dimensions of data information, and is committed to applying FMCW LiDAR distance and velocity measurement technology to autonomous mobility applications.

Scantinel’s FMCW sensing approach adopts a wavelength of 1550 nanometers (meeting high standards for human eye safety), is equipped with a solid-state Optical Enhanced Array (OEA™) scanning system and provides a detection range of more than 300 meters at a very competitive cost target.

Scantinel Photonic Integrated FMCW LiDAR Sensing Module

Scantinel’s FMCW LiDAR technology offers significant benefits over legacy ToF LiDAR:

  • Longer detection range (300m @ 10% reflectivity)
  • Immunity to interference (sunlight, other LiDAR systems) with coherent detection
  • Instantaneous direct velocity information on every measurement point
  • Advanced Optical Enhanced Array system (OEA™) delivers outstanding solid-state scanning results
  • Modular and flexible approach adaptive to any application eco-system
  • Photonic integration enables significant reduction of cost, size, and weight of the LiDAR system
  • High-volume scalability based on standard CMOS technology
