When it comes to registering occupancy and movements while respecting privacy, nothing beats radar. And with 8 GHz UWB radar on chip, price or energy consumption is no longer an issue.
That’s why imec invites you for collaborative R&D into such a solution.
In the near future, smart building features like these will be commonplace:
If you want to make any building ‘smart’, you need to equip it with reliable sensors – lots of them. So which technology is your best choice for a sensing solution that combines performance with affordability?
Designers of smart building sensors increasingly prefer radar over camera detection. For three good reasons:
The only drawback of radar? Current commercial radar chips use too much power and rely on expensive technologies. That makes them less suited for large-scale implementation in battery-powered devices, which is exactly what you need for a smart building sensor network.
Imec develops radar technologies based on standard CMOS technology. We’re working towards radar ICs that are easily integrated with other chip components and cheaper to produce.
In addition, the power consumption of such 8 GHz radar chips is below 1 mW. And they’re fully compliant with international UWB standards.
With 8 GHz UWB radar chips, you have access to a sensing technology that is ideally suited for use in smart building sensors and other IoT applications. They offer you the capability to:
Want to use this technology in your applications? Imec is looking for partners towards collaborative R&D on application, system and chip level.
