11 October 2016 – Infineon strengthens leading position in automated driving through acquisition of Innoluce BV. Further information is available at www.infineon.com

LASER SCANNING PLATFORM

Innoluce’s platform of solid state laser scanning modules, based on unique resonant 1D MEMS mirror technology and integrated ASIC, provides different functions to enable a wide range of applications.

APPLICATIONS

Innoluce’s laser scanning modules enable a wide range of applications. Some key applications are in the automotive and medical markets.

Automotive LIDAR

AUTOMOTIVE LIDAR FOR ADAS AND AUTONOMOUS DRIVING

LIDAR is crucial for the success of ADAS and autonomous driving by enabling full detection of the car’s surroundings with all relevant objects. Innoluce’s solid state laser scanning modules are a critical LIDAR component in enabling long range (>200 meter), high resolution (<0.1°), solid state automotive LIDAR for a price point below US$100.

Smart head light

AUTOMOTIVE LASER SCANNING FOR SMART HEAD LIGHTING

In the pursuit of making driving at night as safe as during the day, smart head lighting based on laser light dramatically improves the safety by giving the driver the best possible visibility and guidance under all driving and weather conditions. Innoluce’s solid state laser scanning modules provide the robustness and performance required for smart head lighting.

COMPANY

The people at Innoluce are passionate about deploying laser scanning technology in a wide range of applications to fundamentally improve the quality of life

ABOUT INNOLUCE

Innoluce, founded in 2010 as an entrepreneurial spin-off of Royal Philips, is a leading innovator and supplier of miniature laser scanning modules based on a technology platform incorporating both fast and slow MEMS mirrors and a controlling ASIC. The core of the laser scanning module is a patented resonant single axis Micro Electro Mechanical System (MEMS) mirror, providing unmatched accuracy and robustness. The Innoluce MEMS mirrors are built from silicon, enabling millimeter sized mirrors.

Innoluce has been fully acquired by Infineon in October 2016.
