Analog Devices Introduces 28 nm CMOS RADAR Technology Platform

Analog Devices has announced a new CMOS Radar technology platform that builds on its established ADAS (Advanced Driver Assistance Systems), MEMS, and RADAR technology portfolio widely used throughout the automotive industry. The Drive360 28 nm CMOS RADAR technology from Analog Devices is the first to offer automotive RADAR technology based on an advanced 28 nm CMOS process. The performance of Radars developed on this platform, exceeds current best-in-class SiGe implementations and is required to see smaller objects further away, thereby giving additional time for the vehicle to take evasive actions.

The 28nm technology platform is the foundation upon which multiple products will be developed, an approach that will directly reduce Tier 1 and OEM time to market, design risk and development costs. The new platform supports a host of applications including high-end, long-range use cases required for autonomous driving and ADAS, short to midrange automatic emergency braking, blind spot detection, cross traffic alerts and ultra-short range autonomous parking.

ADI’s Drive360 28 nm CMOS RADAR platform enables many high-level signal processing integration options and even allows for custom IP integration enabling designers to differentiate their systems. A highly integrated power management companion chip accompanies the platform. This system brings Tier 1 and OEMs the high performance required to build robust solutions for emerging autonomous driving applications.
