Title: Critical Material Properties for Millimeter-Wave Radar Applications for Autonomous Driving

Date: March 28, 2019

Time: 8am PT / 11am ET

Sponsored by: Rogers Corporation

Presented by: Joey Kellner, Market Segment Manager and John Coonrod, Technical Marketing Manager

Need to Successfully Design a Millimeter-Wave Automotive Radar Antenna? Here’s What You Need to Consider.

77 GHz automotive radar applications are growing as more vehicles are equipped with active safety systems and more focus is placed on developing autonomous vehicles. There are many things to consider when implementing PCB technology for 77 GHz automotive sensor applications. Obviously circuit design and simulation are very important, however there are multiple real-world issues which can impact the RF performance of PCB’s at millimeter-wave frequencies and some of these issues are commonly unknown to the designer. This webinar will focus on six critical topics which are key for the RF designer to understand in order to generate models and designs which will yield circuits with RF performance that are more closely matched to the models. These topics include high frequency material properties along with PCB fabrication influences. Additionally, from many years of experience with 77 GHz automotive radar applications at Rogers Corporation, a new RF material was recently launched. The benefits of this material for mmWave applications will be explained.

The webinar will be presented with the following agenda:

  • Market overview for 77 GHz automotive radar applications
  • Several RF material and PCB fabrication influences for designers to be aware of that can impact millimeter-wave performance
  • New high frequency material optimized for 77 GHz automotive applications
