Title (EN) A SYSTOLIC PROCESSOR SYSTEM FOR A LIGHT RANGING SYSTEM
(FR) SYSTÈME DE PROCESSEUR SYSTOLIQUE DESTINÉ À UN SYSTÈME DE TÉLÉMÉTRIE LUMINEUSE
Abstract:
(EN) A ROIC can perform systolic processing of light detectors. The ROIC performs the systolic processing of the light detectors to capture at least i) when, in time units, an initial photon of its reflected light pulse is captured by each of the light detectors in the array, ii) where geographically in terms of column and row address of the light detector capturing its photon is located in the array, iii) scan out data captured by the light detectors on the when in time units, and the where geographically that the photon was captured in a given light detector in the array, and then iv) analyze the data on the when and the where with an algorithm to know exactly when exactly, in terms of time units, the photon was captured relative to the input from the clock circuit in order to determine an objects characteristics.
(FR) La présente invention concerne un ROIC pouvant exécuter un traitement systolique de détecteurs de lumière. Le ROIC effectue le traitement systolique des détecteurs de lumière à capturer au moins i) lorsque, en unités de temps, un photon initial de son impulsion de lumière réfléchie est capturé à l'aide des détecteurs de lumière dans le réseau, ii) là où, géographiquement, en termes d'adresse de colonne et de rangée du détecteur de lumière capturant son photon est localisé dans le réseau, iii) balayer les données capturées par les détecteurs de lumière concernant quand en termes d'unités de temps, et où géographiquement le photon a été capturé dans un détecteur donné de lumière dans le réseau, et ensuite iv) analyser les données concernant le temps et le lieu avec un algorithme pour savoir précisément quand exactement, en termes d'unités de temps, le photon a été capturé par rapport aux entrées provenant du circuit d'horloge afin de déterminer une caractéristique d'objet.
