Via Die Valtorta 48
Our main task is to develop in WP6 a nano-second pulsed Laser driver, able to deliver high current pulses to a plurality of LASER die’s in an automotive LIDAR application.
Our contribution to the project is to develop a GaN based nano-second pulsed laser driver, to boost the performance of LIDAR applications in terms of higher efficiency, longer range at highest eye safety.
We have already developed a good know how on the requirements of laser drivers for LIDAR applications in automotive and have already deep experience in designing DCDC converters for new and innovative Power devices.
