July 28, 2023 /SemiMedia/ — Infineon Applied sciences AG has lately launched the brand new XENSIV™ 60 GHz radar sensor BGT60UTR11AIP. With a compact measurement of solely 16 mm², it's the smallest 60 GHz radar sensor with antennas in bundle (AIP) available on the market and is particularly designed for integration into the smallest units. This makes the sensor supreme for very important sensing (coronary heart and respiratory price) and healthcare units akin to child screens and sleep trackers. Additionally it is appropriate for shopper electronics akin to laptops, TVs and cameras, in addition to sensible house and constructing units akin to air conditioners, thermostats and sensible doorbells. The radar sensor may also be utilized in industrial functions together with robotics and tank stage measurement.

The monolithic microwave built-in circuit (MMIC) is predicated on Infineon’s B11 SiGe BiCMOS know-how, which ensures glorious radio frequency (RF) efficiency. The chip options an ultra-wide bandwidth of 5.6 GHz and a ramp pace of 400 MHz/µs. In consequence, the sensor permits high-resolution frequency modulated steady wave (FMCW) operation with delicate presence and movement detection at a variety of as much as 15 m (50 ft). As well as, the sensor permits exact distance measurement, 1D gesture and very important signal detection, all with sub-mm movement detection capabilities. The built-in antennas present a ±60° discipline of view. As well as, an built-in state machine permits real-time knowledge acquisition with out processor interplay. The MMIC additionally features a 12-bit analog-to-digital converter (ADC) with a sampling price of as much as 4 MSPS (Mega Samples per Second).

The MMIC’s built-in broadcast mode permits a number of chips to be synchronized. It additionally contains on-chip sensors for measuring Tx output energy and temperature. As well as, the sensor options ultra-low energy operation enabled by {hardware} deep sleep mode. Its excessive integration stage makes this MMIC supreme for optimizing system prices.

The XENSIV 60 GHz radar BGT60UTR11AIP could be ordered now and can start transport within the fourth quarter of 2023. For extra data, please go to
