Henri Arif LinkedIn:

This is a turning point in the LiDAR industry?? The OPA architecture is, bar none, the least expensive LiDAR architecture, both from a variable cost and manufacturability perspective. Among competing LiDAR architectures, only phased array has a history in radar systems for automotive deployments in the tens of millions of units per year at costs below $300 per unit. But there was doubt about the ability of the OPA to deliver performance and in particular range. That changes today with Quanergy demonstrating 200m of reach, and positioning itself to deliver on a “mosaic of efficiency”. which will be there to meet a wide range of OEM specific requirements, in automotive of course, but also in industrial applications. Elon Musk called LiDAR a “fool’s race”. He surely did not have in mind the extremely low cost levels that the OPA will allow!
