Analog Devices announced 28 nm CMOS radar chip developing platform for advanced safety and autonomous driving applications, where the company claims its solution is better than the best-in-class Silicon Germanium (SiGe) implementations. The new platform supports a host of applications including high-end, long-range use cases required for autonomous driving and ADAS, short to midrange automatic emergency braking, blind spot detection, cross traffic alerts and ultra-short range autonomous parking.
“ADI’s primary goal was to deliver next generation autonomous driving-level performance on a platform that could serve multiple system generations by providing the greatest application flexibility and scalability,” said Chris Jacobs, general manager, Automotive Safety, Analog Devices. “ADI took a completely fresh look at the current SiGe-based RADAR products and developed a new approach that leverages the cost, power, and integration benefits found in small geometry CMOS. The Drive360 28nm CMOS RADAR platform meets or exceeds current best-in-class SiGe performance and supports emerging autonomous driving requirements.”
ADI’s Drive360 28nm CMOS RADAR platform supports high-level signal processing integration options and allows for custom IP integration enabling designers to differentiate their systems. A highly integrated power management companion chip accompanies the platform. This system brings Tier 1 and OEMs the high performance required to build robust solutions for emerging autonomous driving applications.
