NXP Announces Single-Chip, 77-GHz Radar Transceiver

NXP Semiconductors recently announced the availability of small single-chip, 77-GHz radar transceiver (7.5 × 7.5 mm) with high resolution performance. Working prototypes of the RFCMOS IC are in the hands of NXP’s lead customers. In addition, Google engineers are field testing the ICs with the self-driving cars project.NXP Short Range Radar

The chip’s key characteristics, uses, and specs:

  • About the size of a postage stamp
  • You can integrate the chip “invisibly” practically anywhere in a car.
  • Power consumption is 40% lower than traditional radar ICs.
  • Intended for safety applications (e.g., emergency braking and automated parking)
