New 4D Automotive Radars Hitting the Market

Promising near LiDAR resolution, enabling fully autonomous vehicles and other sensing applications

There has been a lot of activity recently around next generation radar sensors for automotive applications. These newer “4D radar” units determine an object's location in range, azimuth, elevation, and relative speed to provide detailed information about the driving environment as earlier automotive radar systems only captured speed and azimuth. These new radar sensors provide better resolution than previous versions which is where Lidar excels. Here are some of the latest developments in this area.

Concerning PCBs and the Transition from Microwaves to Millimeter Waves

As readers learned in the first part of this two-part ROG blog,1 printed circuit boards (PCBs) can be made for millimeter-wave frequencies by considering circuit-material characteristics when making the transition upward from microwave to millimeter-wave circuits. This second part of the blog explores how different circuit technologies often used at microwave frequencies and different circuit materials handle higher-frequency, millimeter-wave circuits.
