At inSync Mirror, we make MEMS scanning mirrors with large optical aperture and high reliability. And of course, cheap. They will drastically improve LiDAR performance and bring down the cost, (hopefully) bringing us one step closer to fully self-driving cars.

Even some greatest inventors of our time do not believe LiDAR should be in our cars. We agree – LiDAR on the market is either too expensive or lacks in performance. Why bother. Unless – What if LiDAR can be made cheap, reliable, compact, and of high performance? Here at inSync Mirror, we believe we found a way to do so.

The biggest obstacle to create the perfect LiDAR is the lack of the perfect scanner. For a long time, MEMS (Microelectromechanical Systems) technology is widely believed to be the key technology to achieve this. However, despite years of R&D, cheap, reliable, and large-aperture MEMS scanning mirrors do not yet exist. That is, until now. At inSync Mirror, we have adopted a unique approach to achieve the largest synthesized effective optical aperture by perfectly synchronizing the movement of tens of tiny MEMS scanning mirrors.

Foundry Standard Process

No special assembly or exotic materials. Very high mirror to die area ratio. All standard foundry process flow. The cost is significantly lower than the state-of-the-art.

Complete Scanner Solution

In-house developed driving and sensing solution. Precise and reliable (passed AEC-Q100 vehicle standard). Evaluation kit available for close-loop control. 

Easily Customizable

The aperture size, scanning frequencies, scanning angles and mirror coatings can all be easily customized to accommodate various application requirements.

Reference LiDAR Design

The large aperture allows LiDAR to see further and clearer. As a demo, a reference LiDAR design with our MEMS scanning mirror can achieve resolution equivalent to a 250-line mechanical LiDAR with 200m effective range.
