Vixar has recently published an updated white paper on the importance of VCSEL power arrays in many emerging applications. This paper introduces the application requirements for this technology, the relevant benefits of VCSEL technology, and the performance that has been demonstrated with VCSEL arrays
The characteristics of VCSELs have enabled the transformation of 3D sensing and imaging by providing a cost-effective optical source with unique characteristics. The important requirements of the optical light source for sensing applications, including 3D sensing and imaging, are included in the white paper. VCSEL technology addresses the attributes required, including power efficiency, a low speckle illumination source with a narrow spectral width, narrow beam divergence, and flexibility in packaging solutions. Vixar’s VCSEL portfolio is reviewed in detail in how it addresses these requirements.
