EDI CON Online DAY 2 KEYNOTE: Democratization of Radar
September 11, 2019
7am PT / 10am ET
RFICs based upon CMOS have revolutionized the RF industry, and research labs and companies across the world have developed and released production volumes of CMOS transceivers up to the millimeter band. The result has been to make radar robust, affordable, and accessible; thus, it becomes a part of life in our safety, health, and automation/IOT systems. This talk traces the origin of modern radar from its inception as a military tool to its current status as an open, commercialized technology that allows designers to focus on applications instead of hardware. Radar’s time has come, and application development of sensing and imaging using radar technology has never been easier. Join us in a celebration of what radar has achieved, take a deep technical dive into what’s happening now, and figure out how you can be a part of what’s next.
