Efficient Power Conversion (EPC) introduces EPC21701, an 80 V laser driver IC capable of 15 A pulsed current for time-of-flight (ToF) lidar applications including vacuum cleaners, robotics, 3D security cameras and 3D sensing.
EL SEGUNDO, Calif.— January 2023 — EPC announces the introduction of the EPC21701, a laser driver that monolithically integrates an 80 V, 40 A FET with gate driver and 3.3 logic level input into a single chip for time-of-flight lidar systems used in robotics, surveillance systems, and vacuum cleaners. It is tailored to lidar systems for gesture recognition, time of flight (ToF) measurement, robotic vision, or industrial safety.
As the level of automation increases in machines, detailed awareness of the surroundings becomes necessary. Time-of-flight based 3D imaging systems have become the eyes of machines. eGaN® technology has been the workhorse of laser drivers for these systems, enabling the resolution to make intelligent decisions.
