  1. Laser Module Is Dustproof And Waterproof: ILM12IP With Protection Class IP67
    2/12/2019

    LASER COMPONENTS USA, a specialized provider of laser and optoelectronic components in the US and Canada, announces the FLEXPOINT ILM12IP, a robust laser module that is specially designed for use outdoors and in harsh industrial environments. Its housing complies with protection class IP67 making it dust-tight and water-resistant. This has been confirmed by DIN-EN 60529:2014-09 tests performed by the TÜV inspection board, a certification body in Germany.

  2. SPAD Arrays For Flash LiDAR
    1/30/2019

    LASER COMPONENTS USA, a specialized provider of laser and optoelectronic components in the US and Canada, introduces the SPAD2L192, a solid-state CMOS sensor for Flash LiDAR applications. With a resolution of 192 x 2 pixels, the single photon avalanche diode (SPAD) array offers very high sensitivity and high temporal resolution. The noise is below 50 cps. The in-pixel time-to-digital converter, which features a temporal resolution of 312.5 ps and a scale value of 1.28 μs, enables a nominal range of up to 192 m at a resolution of 4.7 cm. The distance measurement is based on the first-photon, direct ToF principle.

  3. Pattern Generators For 3D Stereo Image Processing
    1/18/2019

    LASER COMPONENTS USA, a specialized provider of laser and optoelectronic components in the US and Canada, is proud to present the FLEXPOINT MVstereo laser module generating truly random patterns with 31,806 or 47,708 dots. These patterns are generated completely randomly; even in partial patterns, repetitions do not occur. The range of pseudo random patterns has also been expanded: Versions with 40,100 and 29,594 dots are now also available. Due to the different number of dots and the different fan angles of the patterns, the customer can choose the optimal optics for his application. Both versions are available with red (660 nm) or NIR (830 nm) lasers, and both are eye safe (laser class 1 and 1M).
