  • Patent number: 10882471
    Abstract: Even when a positive/negative surge is applied to a power-supply line, occurrence of malfunction in a semiconductor device is lessened. In an in-vehicle semiconductor device, regulators convert an externally-supplied voltage to generate voltages. A voltage monitoring unit includes a voltage monitoring circuit and a switch, and monitors first to third voltages. An internal circuit has a processor operated by the voltage, and an oscillator operated by the voltage and generating a clock signal to be provided the processor. The voltage monitoring unit stops providing the clock signal to the processor when the voltage level of at least any one of the first to third voltages is below a set value. The voltage monitoring unit provides the clock signal to the processor when the voltage levels of all the first to third voltages exceed the set value.

The light-receiving optical system receives reflected light of the laser light via the mirror. The sensor includes a plurality of light receiving elements. The extractor extracts light receiving elements used for measurement of a distance to the measurement target object. The adjuster adjusts, according to an amplification factor corresponding to the light receiving elements extracted by the extractor, signal values of the electric signals of the light receiving elements. The signal generator generates time-series signals for measurement on the basis of the electric signals adjusted by the adjuster.
