Integrated Device Technology, Inc. (IDT) has entered a strategic partnership with Steradian Semiconductor Pvt. Ltd. to deliver ultra-high resolution 4D mmWave imaging radar for emerging industrial, security, medical, and autonomous vehicle markets. “4D” radar measures distance, height, depth and speed of objects.
Steradian Semiconductor, an India-based fabless semiconductor company, was founded by industry experts with decades of experience in designing cellular/RF and microwave transceiver ICs. Their unique IP has enabled IDT to offer highly differentiated “SenseVerse” series of RADAR transceiver ICs to customers.
The IDT SenseVerse SVR4410 IC is a multi-channel high resolution MIMO RADAR device that operates in the 76-81 GHz frequency band offering superior interference performance and the highest number of channels per device in the industry.
With integrated beamforming and support for multi-device aggregation, the SVR4410 provides best-in-class angular resolution, range, and power consumption in a very small form factor, the company says.
The two companies are collaborating on a series of roadmap ICs with increasing levels of integration and enable customers’ adoption by means of providing radar modules with integrated antennas, SVR transceiver ICs, radar processing IC and DSP algorithms.
IDT’s SenseVerse RADAR family offers all weather high resolution sensing and will enhance and complement human and computer vision. IDT’s SVR4410 and roadmap ICs together with Steradian’s RF expertise will offer exceptional value to a wide variety of application spaces.—Gireesh Rajendran, CEO of Steradian Semiconductor
IDT’s SenseVerse RADAR products are currently sampling at selected customers.
