We propose a 2D scanning optical phased array circuit that reconciliates the requirements of resolution and range in automotive LiDAR. Using only the wavelength of the laser source to scan in both x and y directions, we generate a discrete pixelated pattern in the far field, with both the required resolution and a sufficiently long Rayleigh range. We start from a 2D dispersive optical phased array consisting of wavelength-dependent grating coupler antennas and long delay lines with sufficient angular resolution, and then combine these into a larger array to achieve the required range specifications.
