The LiDAR instrument fires rapid pulses of laser light at a surface, some at up to 150,000 pulses per second. A sensor on the instrument measures the amount of time it takes for each pulse to bounce back. Light moves at a constant and known speed so the LiDAR instrument can calculate the distance between itself and the target with high accuracy. By repeating this in quick succession the instrument builds up a complex ‘map’ of the surface it is measuring. Our high speed Dac and Adc boards are being used in 2D and 3D LiDAR applications. Examples of these are the XU-RT, X6-400M, X6-1000M, FMC-250, FMC-500M and FMC-1000.
