Analog Devices Acquires Innovative German RADAR Technology Provider

Analog Devices has announced the acquisition of Symeo GmbH, a privately held company based in Munich, Germany that specializes in RADAR hardware and software for emerging autonomous automotive and industrial applications. Symeo’s innovative signal processing algorithms will enable ADI to offer customers a RADAR platform with significant improvements in angular accuracy and resolution.

Symeo's unique RF and sensor technology enables real-time position detection and distance measurement. The company’s technology enables system integrators and original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) to offer high precision RADAR solutions in rough industrial environments, and complements ADI’s expanding portfolio of market solutions in this space.

Symeo’s industrial high precision RADAR technology was originally developed within Siemens AG and subsequently spun-out as an independent entity in 2005.

The Symeo team will join ADI’s Autonomous Transportation and Safety (ATS) business unit and continue to be based in Munich. Click here to learn more about ADI's Automotive Radar solutions.
