Lumotive, EDOM partner to market optical computer chips in Taiwan

Applications include solid-state lidar for AMR and drone navigation


In a partnership with EDOM Technology, Lumotive will market its Light Control Metasurface (LCM) chips, including its LM10, to Taiwanese robot component manufacturers.
Optical semiconductor manufacturer Lumotive has partnered with electronics distributor EDOM Technology to deploy solid-state lidar chips to Taiwanese manufacturers.

Optical semiconductor manufacturer Lumotive recently announced a strategic partnership with EDOM Technology, an electronics distributor based in Taiwan. The companies aim to accelerate the deployment of Lumotive's Light Control Metasurface (LCM) chips across the Taiwanese market, with a focus on automotive, robotics, drone, and security applications.

EDOM is the latest addition to Lumotive’s expanding global partner network, which Lumotive said further strengthens its ability to make LCM products readily available to customers across diverse regions and sectors.

“EDOM's extensive reach and deep understanding of the industry will be invaluable as we work to accelerate the adoption of our LCM technology,” said Sam Heidari, CEO of Lumotive.

EDOM will help drive sales and provide comprehensive support as Lumotive's beam steering chips roll out in Taiwan, a region that Lumotive said accounts for more than 8% of global electronics and computers production. Lumotive said its new partnership will enable it to tap into EDOM's strong relationships with major manufacturers, module makers, and electronics suppliers

“We look forward to working closely with the Lumotive team to support the growth and adoption of their technology in the region,” said Hoffei Hou, CEO of EDOM Technology.

Optical beam steering lidar can improve machine vision

Lumotive said its programmable optical beam steering technology enables the next generation of lidar. Its mass-producible, solid-state beam steering chips enable 3D sensing systems to be dramatically more compact, reliable, and cost-effective, the company said. 

With a production-ready reference design model and a suite of products that satisfy a diverse range of performance specifications, Lumotive said it allows sensor manufacturers to rapidly configure and deploy scalable, solid-state lidar systems that can be easily integrated into a wide selection of applications.

Lumotive said LCM-powered lidar facilitates the development of safer, more reliable vehicles and autonomous mobile robots (AMRs) by enabling high-resolution, wide-angle sensing capabilities in a compact, solid-state package. 

For robotics and drone applications, Lumotive's LCMs allow for precise navigation and obstacle avoidance capabilities, enabling safer and more efficient operation in the same compact form factor as a camera. For security and monitoring applications, LCM-based lidar provides high-resolution 3D imaging and adaptive scanning and tracking capabilities, which work reliably in all lighting conditions.
