Collaborators Advance Automotive RADAR Technology And Improve ADAS Applications

Analog Devices and Renesas Electronics are collaborating on a system-level 77/79-GHz RADAR sensor demonstrator to improve Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) applications and enable autonomous driving vehicles. The demonstrator combines two technologies that include the RH850/V1R-M microcontroller (MCU) from the Renesas autonomy Platform and ADI’s Drive360 advanced 28nm CMOS RF-to-bits technology. The seamless system-level operation of these two technologies promises to make driving safer by enabling earlier detection of smaller and faster moving objects at greater distances. It will also lower RADAR system integration efforts and reduce evaluation risks for automotive OEMs and Tier One suppliers. For more details, visit and
