Stepper-motor driver for adaptive front lights
This reference design from Texas Instruments details a solution to drive and control two stepper motors for dynamic headlight levelling and swivelling in automotive headlight applications such as an adaptive LED driving module or a high-resolution DLP module.
Optics for atmospheric LiDAR bring powerful insights
Light Distance and Ranging (LiDAR) systems have been utilised in atmospheric monitoring system to give researchers powerful insight in atmospheric properties. These include studying clouds, wind, temperature and gases. Typically a LiDAR system would consist of an output and input beam.
Ultra-low dropout linear LED driver extends lighting strips
Diodes Incorporated has announced the BCR430UW6 linear LED driver with ultra-low dropout voltage and constant current regulation between five and 100mA. This combination allows more LEDs to be driven from a low supply voltage, making the BCR430UW6 suitable for applications that require multiple LEDs to operate together, such as signage illumination and architectural lighting.
Image sensor provides high dynamic range for smartphones
OmniVision Technologies has announced the OV48C, a 48MP image sensor with a large 1.2 micron pixel size to enable high resolution and low light performance for smartphone cameras. The OV48C is an image sensor for high resolution mobile cameras with on-chip dual conversion gain HDR, which eliminates motion artifacts and produces an excellent signal-to-noise ratio (SNR).

Resolve Optics large format lenses are custom lenses designed to match the performance abilities of the high-end megapixel type camera used in your vision application.
Realising sustainability goals through LED upgrades
Signify has announced that it is helping the city of Davos to achieve its sustainability goals by upgrading both Davos’ streetlights as the lighting of the city’s Congress Centre to high-quality energy-efficient LEDs. Davos will host business and political leaders from around the world during the World Economic Forum.
Off-axis parabolic mirrors designed for imaging applications
Optical Surfaces is an international manufacturer of Off-Axis Parabolic Mirrors (OAPs) for demanding imaging applications. Off-axis parabolic mirrors can be a useful tool in optical design. OAPs combine the achromatic and diffraction limited imaging properties of a parabolic mirror with the ability to deviate the light path off-axis, which is useful for most imaging systems.
