TSLC-SemiLEDs to supply components for Cepton’s LiDAR solutions
Optoelectronic system manufacturer TSLC Corp, a subsidiary of LED chip and component maker SemiLEDs Corp of Hsinchu Science Park, Taiwan, has been selected to supply key components for both automotive and non-automotive light detection and ranging (LiDAR) solutions made by Silicon Valley-based Cepton Inc, which has developed high performance micro-motion technology (MMT) LiDAR.
TSLC is a technology developer and manufacturer of ultra-precision optoelectronic systems, with more than 10 years of experience innovating unique semiconductor package solutions such as wafer-level packaging. The firm has worked with Cepton for the past two years to qualify and validate TSLC’s manufacturing processes in preparation for large-scale deployment of Cepton’s LiDAR solutions. Specifically, TSLC is now qualified to manufacture components supporting what is reckoned to be the largest advanced driver-assistance system (ADAS) LiDAR series production award in the industry.
“Using TSLC’s advanced micro-packaging technology together with our ultra-precision alignment technology, we have delivered thousands of components used in Cepton’s LiDAR solutions,” says TSLC’s CEO Trung Doan, chairman/CEO of SemiLEDs. “We are excited to be selected as a supplier of key components for Cepton’s LiDAR for large-scale deployment,” he adds. “Cepton’s LiDAR solutions are making our roadways safer by reducing accidents and enabling higher levels of autonomy.”
