Fixed and Floating FMCW Radar Signal Processing with Tensilica DSPs


Automotive advanced driver assistance system (ADAS) applications increasingly demand radar modules with better capability and performance. These applications require sophisticated radar processing algorithms and powerful digital signal processors (DSPs) to run them. Because these embedded systems have limited power and cost budgets, the DSP’s instruction set architecture (ISA) needs to be eff... » read more

Here Comes High-Res Car Radar


A dozen or so startups are developing high-resolution radar chips that use various modulation schemes and processes, such as CMOS, FD-SOI and even metamaterials. In theory, high-resolution radar could boost the capabilities of today’s radar for cars, as well as eliminate the need for a separate LiDAR system. But the technology is still in the research stage and has yet to be proven commerc... » read more
