60GHz In-car Automotive Grade Radar-on-chip
9 January, 2020
Vayyar Imaging launched the world's first full 60GHz automotive-grade radar on a chip
Vayyar Imaging from Yehud, near Tel aviv, announced the world’s first 60GHz automotive-grade MIMO radar-on-chip (ROC). The 60GHz solution offers the complete functionality of Vayyar’s leading 79GHz reference-design, enabling the automotive industry to meet global EU NCAP and US Hot-Car needs.
The new Radar displays the dimension, location, breathing pattern and movement of people, utilizing proprietary 4D point-cloud VOXEL imaging. Vayyar’s automotive-grade radar-on-a-chip (ROC) has up to 48 transceivers and an internal DSP for real-time signal processing. It produces 2,000 virtual reference points of the surrounding.
With a board containing a multiple antennas on the PCB, the system builds its 4D Point Cloud, from which the software extracts the relevant information about the scanned objects. The company said this is the first to close the gap between the robustness of radars and the resolution of LiDAR and optics.
It is ready for mass production and deployment, having undergone intensive CPD and SBR test cases over the last year, with millions of test-samples. “We are proud to offer a 60GHz version of our leading 79GHz chip, affording the industry complete regulatory flexibility,” said Ian Podkamien, Director of Automotive Business Development at Vayyar.
“Our comprehensive In-Car Evaluation Kit is available on both 60GHz and 79GHz versions, with the same software.”
