Photonics

Our eye-safe SWIR photoreceivers and lasers go the distance - enabling long range object detection beyond 200 meters. Our proprietary photoreceivers reduce photonic system complexity by tightly integrating our sensitive photodetectors with our highly configurable read out integrated circuits (ROICs). Together, our lasers and specialized photoreceivers form the backbone of next generation lidar systems.

Put our eye-safe, unique, highly differentiated Photonics components on your lidar roadmap.   

 

Decades of Innovation Experience:

Our vision is to move technology and the world toward a safer, sustainable future. This vision led us to acquire Voxtel, Inc., a vertically integrated designer and manufacturer of “eye-safe” laser ranging and imaging (lidar/LADAR) solutions. 

This acquisition has brought together Voxtel’s significant laser and imaging expertise with our automotive leadership and scale. Together, we’re ready to enable the next generation of advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS).

We understand optics. Our experienced team of engineers and scientists have been pioneering photonics since 1999, developing cutting-edge solutions that help our customers bring breakthrough innovations to life.

Our portfolio of products includes photodetectors & photoreceivers, lasers, focal-plane arrays, and camera and rangefinder modules and systems.

EYE-SAFE Photodetectors & Photoreceivers

Our InGaAs PIN and avalanche photodiodes (APDs) have industry-leading gain and low noise performance for state-of-the-art sensitivity.  APDs and PINs are available as single-pixel or area array detectors or integrated with custom, matched ROICs to create easy-to-use programmable photoreceivers with analog and digital outputs and automatic temperature compensation.

EYE-SAFE LASERS

Allegro's eye-safe short-wavelength infrared (SWIR) lasers deliver short, high-energy pulses with diffraction-limited beam quality and low divergence, allowing for long-distance ranging or imaging to be achieved in smaller, lighter, and lower-power packages.  Custom designed, easy-to-configure laser driver boards are available and ship with connectors and a power supply.  An integrated battery charger permits system operation from LiPO batteries.

EYE-SAFE FOCAL PLANE ARRAYS

Our low-noise, high-gain InGaAs APDs and PINs are available as arrays suitable for pToF applications.  Silicon Focal Plane Array (FPAs) solutions are also available for pulsed time-of-flight (pToF) lidar/LADAR and hyperspectral/hypertemporal imaging applications requiring multiple samples/voxel or dual-mode (IR + visible light) imaging.  These arrays are also available incorporated into lidar/LADAR sensors and cameras.

Rangefinder Modules and Systems

Our vertical integration, optical systems expertise, and custom lasers, detectors, and ROICs enable high-performance, compact, low-cost, light-weight eye-safe rangefinder solutions.  They are easy to program and operate (microprocessor controlled) and are capable of long range with less laser power, even in harsh environments.  Various levels of integration are available to match our solution to yours, from component-level bundles of laser, detector, and electronics to a complete chassis with optics and optional Attitude/Heading Reference Systems (AHRS)
