A CMOS 79 GHz radar SoC

High-performance, small form factor mm-wave radar systems are key enablers for the new smart society. Applications for automotive driver assistance and even autonomous cars are obvious, but also many other systems like vital signs monitoring, gesture recognition and self-guided drones are envisioned. The research presented in this talk investigates the use of nanoscale CMOS technology for 79 GHz radar systems, which will be a key enabler to open up this market for cost-effective high-volume production, and allows integration of large digital processing in the same system-on-chip. A new concept of phase-modulated radar detection is also introduced that blends perfectly with the integration capabilities of CMOS.
