XENSIV™ 60 GHz radar sensor for automotive enables highly reliable in-cabin monitoring systems

Munich, Germany – 25 May, 2022 – With spring, temperatures are rising again to reach highs in summer. But rising temperatures also mean that it quickly becomes up to 70°C inside parked vehicles: A danger for animals and children left behind in the car. Equipped with the XENSIV™ 60 GHz automotive radar sensor (BGT60ATR24C) from Infineon Technologies AG (FSE: IFX / OTCQX: IFNNY), in-cabin monitoring systems (ICMS) detect micro-movements as well as vital signs of left-behind infants and animals and sound the alarm. In addition, the compact and cost-effective chipset addresses applications such as front-end radar for gesture sensing, high-resolution frequency modulated continuous wave (FMCW) radars for distance measurement, short range sensing operations, as well as hidden sensing applications in the radome.

The BGT60ATR24C enables 4 GHz ultra-wide bandwidth FMCW operation in a small package. Configuration of the sensors and data collection are done with a digital interface. The integrated state machine enables independent data acquisition with power mode optimization for lowest power consumption. The size- and space-optimized solution has two transmit channels (TX) as well as four receive channels (RX) and offers excellent thermal management.

Furthermore, the radar sensor enables additional functions such as seat belt reminder, resulting in a cost-effective solution that further improves passenger safety in the car. The sensor is qualified for automotive applications according to AEC-Q100/101.

Availability

The XENSIV 60 GHz automotive radar sensor BGT60ATR24C can be ordered now. More information is available at www.infineon.com/bgt60atr24c.

Sensor Technologies Here to Stay: Post-pandemic

Sponsored by Infineon

Today sensor technology has become integral to our everyday lives. And in the future, sensor technology will mean even more than it does today. In this episode of Chalk Talk, Amelia Dalton chats with David Jones from Infineon about the future of sensor technologies and how they are going to impact our lives in the post-pandemic world. They investigate how miniaturization, built-in antennas in-package and the evolution of radar technology have helped usher in a whole new era of sensing technologies and how all of this and more will help us live healthier and happier lives.
