Analog Devices and Renesas Electronics Collaborate on 77/79-GHz Automotive RADAR Technology to Improve ADAS Applications and Enable Autonomous Vehicles
Analog Devices, Inc. and Renesas Electronics Corp. 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 new demonstrator combines two cutting-edge 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 will 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.
“RADAR sensors play a crucial role for all ADAS or automated driving functions,” said Jean-Francois Chouteau, vice president of Renesas Global ADAS Centre. “This cooperation ideally combines the best of ADI and Renesas assets to deliver performance and enable OEMs and Tier One suppliers to reduce development cost and time to market.”
“Analog Devices’ collaboration with Renesas will be a key enabler for the highest performance RADAR systems,” said Chris Jacobs, general manager, ADAS & Automotive Safety, Analog Devices.
