Cloud Light to manufacture SiLC’s vision sensors

07 June 2022

SiLC Technologies Inc., a maker of silicon photonics, and Cloud Light Technology Limited have formed an agreement where Cloud Light will deliver volume manufacturing of SiLC’s Eyeonic Vision sensors.

The sensors are based on a proprietary silicon photonic chip that integrates frequency-modulated continuous-wave (FMCW) into a single, tiny chip. The company claims it is the only chip capable of being integrated into next generation autonomous vehicles, security and industrial robots.

The silicon photonic-based lidar will provide:

  • Accurate depth
  • Instantaneous velocity
  • Dual-polarization intensity

Cloud Light has capabilities in optical module design, high volume assembly, testing and manufacturing that includes a mature chip fab processor with an ecosystem partner in Asia. Early sample shipments and the transition to volume production is expected this year.
