NXP Semiconductors has expanded its 77GHz radar portfolio with a radar transceiver – the NXP MR3003 – optimised for front or corner radar applications in automated driving.
The increased demand for both front-view and 360°-surround view sensing associated with automated driving has led auto makers to search for the best RF performance, power consumption and sensor size based on the application and in-vehicle location.
NXP’s radar portfolio is based on both BiCMOS and RFCMOS process technologies. Complemented by the NXP S32R automotive radar processing platform, networking ICs and power management solutions, the NXP radar portfolio enables auto makers to develop systems ranging from small, compact radar sensors through high-resolution imaging radar sensing applications.
“The MR3003 radar transceiver delivers superior RF output power, low noise and multi-channel operation to enable radar sensors with increased range and improved resolution,” said Patrick Morgan, vice president and general manager of the ADAS modems product line at NXP.
“By implementing high-performance products in both SiGe BiCMOS and RFCMOS technologies, NXP offers a unique and broad radar product portfolio that enables auto makers to meet radar requirements across the full range of car models.”
