PulsedLight technology brief - .PDF file.

Pacer is now offering a new and improved LIDARLite distance sensor module manufactured by PulsedLight. The laser-based sensor is claimed to offer a number of advanced over existing range-finger technologies and is suitable for use in robotics, security, building automation and other intelligent sensing applications.

Compatible with v1, the new LIDARLite model offers signal-processing improvements that increase the measurement rep rate to 500Hz and also has improved I2C communications.

The LIDARLite range uses signature correlation techniques and a patented single-chip architecture to reduce the size, mass, power requirement and cost compared with conventional range finders. The removal of power-hungry components such as analogue-to-digital converters, and the use of lower-power optoelectronics, enables ultra low-current operation to below 2mA (depending on the rep rate). 

Programmable intelligence allows the handling of multiple returning signals. The range can be extended to several kilometres. Multiple LIDARLite sensors can be used with a single microprocessor in multiplexed form to enable high rep rate multi-Kilohertz scanning and profiling applications.
