IR lasers (VCSEL)
ams OSRAM's Vertical Cavity Surface Emitting Lasers are engineered to serve even the most demanding Sensing applications in the segments Mobile/wearable, Automotive and Industry.
Near infrared (NIR) VCSELs
VCSELs are a key enabler for the fast growing 3D sensing market. The number of applications that utilize 3D sensing technology continues to increase: From Automotive LiDAR, the detection of the surroundings for robots, to the unlocking of smartphones via facial recognition.
ams OSRAM is offering a broad portfolio of VCSEL dies, packages and modules to adress various application requirements.
ams TARA2000-AUT - Automotive Flood Illuminator
The TARA2000-AUT is designed for the new generation of 2D and 3D optical in-cabin sensing applications, where a high power illumination and high signal-to-noise ratio is needed under all circumstances. VCSEL based illumination enables maximum image quality with minimum PCB footprint, and combined with a narrow spectral bandwidth ensures robustness against sunlight and sunglass reflections inside the car. The ultra-compact module is designed and manufactured with ams‘ state-of-the-art opto-electronics component manufacturing processes and is AECQ-102 and ISO26262 compliant, a first in its class. TARA2000-AUT can be used both for 2D NIR-imaging and for 3D sensing systems such as time-of-flight and stereo vision. Different wavelength options offer flexibility to customers using different optical systems, and multiple FOI options make sure there is a good fit for each application such as driver monitoring, interior monitoring, or gesture sensing.
