CMOS technology drives safe, autonomous vehicles further
Believed to be the first to offer automotive radar technology based on a 28nm CMOS process, the Drive360 radar platform brings unparalleled RF performance to advanced safety and autonomous driving applications, says Analog Devices.
Performance is claimed to exceed current best-in-class SiGe implementations,which is required to see smaller objects further away, allowing additional time for the vehicle to take evasive actions. The company says multiple products will be based on the 28nm technology, to reduce Tier 1 and OEM time to market, design risk and development costs. Applications such as use cases required for autonomous driving and ADAS, and short to midrange automatic emergency braking, blind spot detection, cross traffic alerts and ultra-short range autonomous parking are supported.
The Drive360 28nm CMOS radar platform enables many high-level signal processing integration options and also allows for custom IP integration enabling designers to differentiate their systems. A highly integrated power management companion chip accompanies the platform.
