    Sensors give electronic systems awareness of their environment, enabling amazing advances in
    autonomy. Specifically, Light Detection and Ranging, or LiDAR, uses pulsed lasers to determine the
    distance of objects quickly and accurately. Originally used for topographic surveying, today’s small
    and light LiDAR systems give products vision, both depth perception and accurate positioning.
    In autonomous vehicles, LiDAR serves as the eye that provides a 360-degree view for navigation
    and collision avoidance. In smart infrastructure, LiDAR makes roads safer by monitoring pedestrian
    and vehicle traffic. In robotics and industrial systems, 3D vision increases safety, automation, and
    intelligence. LiDAR also reveals what is invisible to the naked eye, using different wavelengths to detect
    atmospheric pollutants.

    Key to LiDAR is accurate measurement of time of flight. Essential Analog products from Maxim
    Integrated (now part of Analog Devices) deliver the highest accuracy. Innovations include
    transimpedance amplifiers (TIA) with low noise and extremely high bandwidth, and high-speed
    comparators with very low propagation delay. High integration, more channels, and wafer scale
    packaging enable small solutions. Supervisor and protection devices create robust systems with
    enhanced reliability in rugged environments.

    We hope this publication provides you with inspiration as you explore solutions for adding LiDAR
    capabilities to your next system.
