The Versatile SoC at the Core of the LiDAR Platform

LeddarCore LCA2 SoC is a multi-channel LiDAR control and acquisition system-on-chip that enables sensor manufacturers developing their own signal processing software to design LiDAR solutions that meet the specific requirements of various applications by providing the core LiDAR functions they need in a highly-integrated SoC.

With its ability to support various types of designs and components, including many options for light sources and wavelengths, photodetectors, illumination, and beam steering methods, the LCA2 SoC enables and enhances multiple types of solid-state LiDARs, including flash and hybrid-flash configurations.

The Fastest, Safest Path to Market

Leveraging affordable, readily available technologies, the LCA2 SoC shortens development cycles and accelerates the path to high-volume manufacturing to meet the expected ramp-up of mass-market demand.

Patented Automotive-Grade Technology

Developed to meet the automotive industry’s stringent requirements, the LeddarEngine allows customers to design and mass-produce SSLs that meet functional safety (ISO-26262 ASIL-B) and reliability (AEC-Q100) requirements. The LCA2 LeddarEngine integrates LeddarTech’s proprietary signal acquisition and digitization algorithms, which enhances LiDAR’s detection range and robustness, for optimized performance-to-cost ratios.
