Fabless chip company Solidvue will launch lidars using for use in mobile and autonomous vehicles in 2023 its CMOS lidar sensor IC technologies, the company CEO said.

The firm was the only one in South Korea that can develop a CMOS lidar sensor IC, Solidvue CEO Jaehyuk Choi said.

It will use its own technologies in optical devices and signal processing to commercialize the lidars, Choi said.

The company’s lidar, compared to conventional mechanical lidar, will be tenth of the size in volume while cost is reduced to 1/100, he claimed.

Solidvue was formed in November 2020. It is designing lidar’s sensor as SoC. 

It has introduced lidar prototypes with ranges from 10m, 48m to 64m so far.

The only company that has successfully commercialized such technology is Japan’s Sony.

Solidvue won a government project to develop lidar worth 2.74 billion won in August.

Choi, who is also the founder, is an associate professor at Sungkyunkwan University in semiconductor system engineering. His colleague at the same university department Chun Jung-hoon is a co-founder as well as UNIST professor of electrical engineering Kim Seong-jin.
