LeddarTech Delivers Production Samples of the LeddarCore LCA2 System-on-Chip for Mass-Market Automotive LiDARs

Del

LeddarCore LCA2 production samples demonstrate enhanced LiDAR performance and resolution with a SoC and software designed to meet functional safety requirements.

QUEBEC CITY, Jan. 07, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- LeddarTech, an industry leader providing the most versatile and scalable auto and mobility LiDAR platform, announces the availability of production samples of the LeddarCore LCA2 system-on-chip (SoC), which offers enhanced LiDAR performance and resolution in a design that conforms to functional safety requirements. The LCA2 SoC allows Tier-1 suppliers to design and mass produce automotive-grade solid-state LiDARs at costs ranging from sub-100$ for entry-level solutions to sub-300$ for high-performance solutions, making the cost-effective deployment of LiDARs in production vehicles possible.

“With the production version of the LCA2 system-on-chip, we can achieve a significantly longer range than originally planned—with more than 100m at 10% reflectivity. We also added the support of Hybrid Flash designs that use microelectromechanical systems (MEMS) for laser beam steering, which increases the resolution,” said Michael Poulin, vice-president of product management at LeddarTech. “The LCA2’s SoC and software have been designed from the ground up to meet ISO 26262 ASIL-B and will allow our customers to deliver automotive-grade LiDARs that comply with functional safety requirements,” concluded Mr. Poulin. 

The LCA2 LeddarEngine, comprised of the LeddarCore LCA2 SoC and LeddarSP signal processing software library, is at the core of LeddarTech’s auto and mobility LiDAR platform, which equips key suppliers of components and systems with the technology, tools and resources they need to design their own differentiated LiDAR offering and to meet the specific requirements of various advanced driver-assistance systems (ADAS) and autonomous driving (AD) applications, including:

  • Passenger car ADAS and AD (such as Traffic Jam Pilot)  
  • Commercial vehicle ADAS and AD
  • Autonomous shuttles and autonomous delivery vehicles
  • Robotaxi 360° AD LiDAR cocoon

The Scalable, Versatile Auto & Mobility LiDAR Platform

With its ability to support various types of designs and components, including many options of light sources and wavelengths, photodetectors, illumination and beam steering methods, the LCA2 LeddarEngine enables and enhances multiple solid-state LiDAR methods, including Flash and MEMS Hybrid Flash configurations. Hence, the LCA2 LeddarEngine is a key component of a highly versatile and scalable platform that can address a wide range of automotive and mobility applications.

The platform leverages affordable, readily available technologies and is supported by the Leddar Ecosystem of partners who have developed automotive-grade components, software and tools that are ready to be used in the development of cost-effective SSLs based on the LeddarEngine. This shortens development cycles and accelerates the path to high-volume manufacturing, making the LeddarEngine the best LiDAR solution to meet the accelerated mass-market ramp-up. 

The LCA2 LeddarEngine integrates LeddarTech’s proprietary signal acquisition and processing algorithms. The powerful Leddar technology, which has been perfected over a decade of dedicated R&D and multiple commercial deployments in the most demanding environments, enhances LiDAR’s detection range and accuracy, for optimized performance-to-cost ratios.

LiDAR sensor implementations of the newly released LCA2 SoC will be demonstrated at CES 2019 in Las Vegas, January 8 to 11, at the LeddarTech Pavilion found at CP-16.

Therefore, mice exposed to microgravity via spaceflight are a valuable model to understand and devel

MPP Global Bridges the Innovation Gap by Centralising Physical and Digital Subscriber Management and Billing in a Single Cloud Platform17.1.2019 12:29Pressemelding

WARRINGTON, UK, Jan. 17, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- MPP Global, the technology company that delivers eSuite, the world’s smartest subscriber management & billing platform, announces the launch of pivotal new functionality which enables media organisations to seamlessly create and manage the sale of physical subscriptions. This positions eSuite as the complete physical and digital subscription management solution. The development of this industry-first functionality was borne out of the common challenge for publishers when managing multiple systems for deploying bundled print and digital subscriptions. This is inflexible for publishers and limits choice for their customers, restricting the ability to seamlessly create and offer digital and print subscription bundles. Despite increased consumer uptake of digital subscriptions, print still accounts for almost 90% of circulation revenues globally. To drive reader revenues successfully, publishers require functionality to execute complementar
