Analog Devices LIDAR Development Kit

The AD-FMCLIDAR1-EBZ is a proven modular hardware platform for 1D non-Scanning LIDAR development. It allows the flexibility to meet individual design needs, reduce time to market, and reduces the complexities of LIDAR development. It includes open source software framework integratable in customer designs and wrappers for MATLAB, Python, Dronecode, Baidu Apollo, RobotOS.

Depending on customer preferences and development experience, different FPGA development platforms can be used. The system was tested with both the Intel Arria10 Soc and Xilinx ZC706 Development Platforms.
