24 GHz FMCW Radar Sensor for Distance, Angle and Speed Measurements

IMST will present and demonstrate its 24 GHz FMCW Radar technology. The 2-channel sensor is a miniaturized, ultralight radar unit. This system comprises a manifold configurable RF frontend with digital signal processing and programmable interface. The controller allows flexible generation of radar signals and provides enough computation power to perform signal processing for target detection or even complex tracking algorithms. The radar unit is equipped with an SPI interface which allows the user to define all radar settings and to receive all measured data. These data can be calculated properties from single targets (like distance, angle and speed) or complex time- or frequency domain curves for user-defined evaluations. If needed the user can implement customer tailored algorithms for specific applications.

The Developer Kit comprises the Radar Sensor, a PC software with Graphical User Interface and an USB cable/adapter for user-friendly startup, testing and application specific integration of the radar unit. The software allows parameter settings and visualization of measured radar data. Typical parameters are detection range, resolution, frequency bandwidth, output power, radar signal shape and duration. The measurement results are shown in different types of graphs and can be exported to csv-files.
An Expert Mode allows the experienced user to test the radar sensor beyond the ISM band limitations by increasing the frequency bandwidth and the RF output power.
