Cepton (NASDAQ: CPTN), a Silicon Valley innovator and leader in high-performance lidar solutions, today announced the release of Komodo, its proprietary lidar point cloud processor ASIC (Application-Specific Integrated Circuit) chip. A highly integrated custom SoC, developed by Cepton in California, Komodo is designed to maximize the technical advantages of Cepton’s patented lidar architecture to significantly improve point cloud quality while replacing several merchant silicon devices to dramatically reduce cost. Supported by the company’s deep experience in industrializing automotive lidar for volume production through its flagship ADAS lidar series production program, Komodo successfully achieved production-ready status and is expected to begin shipping in the second quarter of 2023. “Our goal is to ultimately offer our customers a customizable black-box solution with built-in perception capabilities,” said Dr. Jun Pei, CEO and co-founder of Cepton. “Since 2019, we’ve had a vision of developing a comprehensive chipset through a series of ASICs covering front-end signal processing, back-end point cloud processing and eventually perception capabilities all within the lidar unit. We started with our own signal processor ASIC, Iguana, and now we are proud to unveil Komodo.”
