dSPACE: New Target Simulator for 4-D Radar Sensors Sets New Standards

Paderborn, October 9, 2020: dSPACE is setting new standards for testing of 4-D radar sensors with a new target simulator. The DARTS 9040-G is the first simulator worldwide to process multiple radar signals simultaneously with a bandwidth of up to 5 GHz. It allows for the reliable and efficient development of cutting-edge, high-resolution radar sensors for driver assistance systems and autonomous driving.

To precisely capture driving scenarios, self-driving vehicles must have high-resolution radar sensors that provide detailed information, such as with height, distance, and speed of objects with a wide field of view. The excellent resolution and signal quality of the dSPACE Automotive Radar Test System (DARTS) 9040-G supports demanding sensor tests from development to production – end-to-end from chip design to sensor development to end-of-line testing.

The DARTS 9040-G target simulator simultaneously covers the high frequency range of 76 to 81 GHz and has the most compact HF front ends in the world. This unique quality makes it easy to reposition for new test setups.

Dr. Andreas Himmler, Senior Product Manager for automotive radar systems at dSPACE states, “We have worked with various pilot users to verify that the DARTS 9040-G reconciles two extremes: the signal purity of a passive delay line and the flexibility and range of functionality of an electronic radar target simulator.”

dSPACE is continuously expanding its DARTS portfolio in close cooperation with its partners, radar specialists ITS and miro·sys. The dSPACE Automotive Radar Test Systems (DARTS) cover the entire value chain, from sensor testing by chip manufacturers to hardware-in-the-loop validation and end-of-line testing by automobile manufacturers.

It’s easy to go wrong in the analog portion of your design, particularly if you’re not an analog “expert.” Electrical simulation can help reduce risk and design re-spins. In this episode of Chalk Talk, Amelia Dalton chats with Rico Brooks of Microchip about the MPLAB Mindi tool, and how it can help reduce your design risk.
