GaN Laser Diode Driver for LiDAR

LiDAR (Light Distancing and Ranging) uses pulsed lasers to rapidly create a three-dimensional image or map of a surrounding area. This technology is rapidly gaining traction in applications where this increased accuracy is vital, such as autonomous vehicles and augmented reality systems. Today’s eGaN® FETs and ICs switch ten times faster than the aging power MOSFET giving LiDAR systems superior resolution, faster response time, and greater accuracy.
