PixQuanta’s mission is to provide the auto, space and consumer industry with the safest possible LiDAR solution in while having the greatest accuracy, longest range, highest reliability and smallest form factor…and all at the lowest cost. To achieve this PixQuanta’s proprietary high gain thin film diode technology transforms a CMOS Image Sensor (2D) into a CMOS ranging sensor (3D) to create a high performance/low cost LiDAR solution.
