SiLC announces silicon photonics systems for machine vision


SiLC Technologies (SiLC), a silicon photonics company working on machine vision, has announced the availability of four specialised Eyeonic Vision Systems. Engineered for vision detection capabilities that span from short distances to over 1,250 meters, these systems utilise FMCW LiDAR technology to meet the diverse application needs across various sectors.

According to SiLC, current machine vision systems largely rely on camera systems that only capture a snapshot of the available data, necessitating resource-intensive computing to compensate for the missing pieces. Meanwhile, the company says its Eyeonic Vision System offers not only the capability to identify objects beyond a kilometre away, but also provides per-pixel velocity and polarisation information, high precision, and interference-free operation.

“Since the launch of the Eyeonic Vision System, our collaboration with various OEMs revealed distinct vision requirements, necessitating multiple versions of our solution,” said Mehdi Asghari, SiLC founder and CEO.

The company’s refined Eyeonic Vision System portfolio includes four systems, each one tailored to a different range: short (up to 50 metres), medium (up to 150 metres), long (up to 300 metres), and ultra-long (exceeding 1250 metres).

SiLC says that, to date, it is the only company that has built a chip-integrated FMCW LiDAR solution, which is critical for machine vision to emulate the human eye. “Our mission is to change the current state of machine vision, empowering the next generation of machines to integrate seamlessly into our society,” added Asghari. “As AI continues its upward trajectory, SiLC is poised to further innovate in response to market demand. The Eyeonic Vision System is just the start. We’re focused on enhancing angular resolution and embedding solid-state scanning into our single-chip solution.”
