We demonstrate a blind zone-suppressed and flash-emitting solid-state Lidar based on lens-assisted beam steering (LABS) technology. As a proof-of-concept demonstration, with a design of subwavelength-gap one-dimensional (1D) long-emitter array and multi-wavelength flash beam emitting, the device was measured to have 5%-blind zone suppression, 0.06{\deg}/point-deflection step and 4.2 microsecond-scanning speed. In time-of-flight (TOF) ranging experiments, Lidar systems have field of view of 11.3{\deg}* 8.1{\deg} (normal device) or 0.9{\deg}*8.1{\deg} (blind-zone suppressed device), far-field number of resolved points of 192 and a detection distance of 10 m. This work demonstrates the possibility that a new integrated beam-steering technology can be implemented in a Lidar without sacrificing other performance.
