The presenter will discuss a new LiDAR technology in a solid-state, fully integrated system using integrated acousto-optic beam steering and frequency domain imaging. The innovative LiDAR system offers superior performance, compactness, ruggedness, and cost-effectiveness, potentially disrupting the current LiDAR technology landscape. We demonstrate a simple device construction, control system for beam steering, and frequency domain detection scheme. The system achieves frequency-modulated continuous-wave ranging with an 18° field of view, 0.12° angular resolution, and a ranging distance up to 115 m.
