Key Features & Specifications

  • Comprehensive models in design flows for automotive radar development and verification; transmit signal generation, transmit channel and antenna, target and environment, receiver channel & antenna, and signal processing
  • Jump-start with practical workspace examples such as linear FMCW multi-target detection and automotive radar 3D scan
  • Utilize the hardware connectivity to Keysight test equipment (arbitrary waveform generator, vector signal generator, and vector signal analyzer) to compare and find meaningful correlations between simulation and measured data


SystemVue ESL Design SoftwareThe W1908 Automotive Radar Library has comprehensive tools for radar waveform generation, signal modulation, antenna modeling, channel simulation and signal processing. Users can simply connect different models to establish the unique automotive radar simulation scenarios.

Meanwhile, the reference designs, such as multi-targets range and speed measurement and 3D scanning radar using antenna array, could offer users much easier starting points to implement their own design ideas into early simulations and prototyping.

Bring your design ideas into real-world automotive radar scenarios

The Automotive Radar Library is used with the Keysight SystemVue electronic system level simulation platform to integrate critical, safety-conscious and complicated scenarios into reliable, leading-edge design of automotive radar. It provides solutions under cost and time constraint projects to design and develop algorithm such as direction of angle (DOA) and phase comparison.

Multi-scatter target parameterized simulation models are available in the Automotive Radar Library to coordinate file import to realize and visualize the micro-Doppler effects on the target. This library can import antenna pattern files for ground clutter simulation as well.

To accelerate the product development cycle from simulation to pilot and prototyping, the connectivity to test and measurement instruments with SystemVue platform enables upload and download the data files by adding input and/or output in the schematic workspace

This library has the capacity of radar waveform generation, signal modulation, antenna modeling, channel simulation and signal processing.

Avoid overdesign - use synergistic system simulation tools for RF and baseband

Today’s designs require more sophisticated RF and baseband system simulation, to manage technical risk earlier in the design process. System simulation of RF / baseband interactions within and between channels is an increasing challenge. Larger array sizes, bandwidth, frequency, distortion and modulation complexity multiplies risk.

  • Focus on product design, not simulator design Maintaining a combination of tools such as MATLAB and fragmented spreadsheets to do domain-specific system simulations takes time. Next generation automotive radar systems require simulation tools that can accurately model the increasing complex RF and baseband interactions.
  • Frequency & time domain simulation for RF & baseband system design Co-simulate with DataFlow Time domain and Spectrasys RF system simulators. Easily simulate system metrics with RF impairments.
  • An Integrated Workflow Integrate your workflow with complementary tools for co-simulation with ADS, SS, VSA, MATLAB & STK. Achieve a greater simulation capability with synergy to your workflow.
  • Efficient and accurate simulation tools for multi-channel OTA applications Perform both frequency and time domain simulations for phased array analysis, beamforming and over-the-air (OTA). Evaluate the effects of complex channel-channel RF interactions and impairments, including yield & failure.
  • Easily deploy your simulation & environment scenarios into proven RF test solutions Deploy scenarios to Keysight Instrumentation and validate your design with the same scenarios from system simulation.
