Baraja releases integrated components for its Spectrum-Scan LiDAR


Baraja, a company developing LiDAR for autonomous vehicles, has announced the availability of A-samples of all the integrated components necessary to build a Doppler RMCW Spectrum-Scan LiDAR for automotive integration.

A LiDAR system has two main jobs to perform: measure distance (ranging) and steering a light (scanning). It's a complex system that integrates electronics, optics, photonics, and advanced software algorithms for signal processing with the rigour of industrial quality and automotive cost and scale.

“Multiple heterogeneous sub-systems are contained in a LiDAR, this would require each sub-system's integration via completely different classes of chips and using different processes,” said Federico Collarte, CEO of Baraja. “All the different chips and integrated components (Tx, Rx, amplification, processing and steering) to build the highest performance LiDAR offering, including Doppler velocity, are now available as A-samples for integration. We've made it really simple to plug-and-play the components to get the best performance LiDAR and the beauty of the solution is that the technologies developed to get to these chips self-reinforce and make possible further integration in the future.”

Cibby Pulikkaseril, CTO of Baraja, added: “I'm pleased to share that now with our A-samples available, we're right on track to launching Spectrum HD 2025 C-samples/general availability in 2025, and if you want to have access to this truly transformational technology it's a great time to work together.”
