Overcome Millimeter-wave Radar Chip Testing Challenges

Automotive-mmWave-radar-chip-test solutions

True driverless vehicles require real-time measurement of the road environment and powerful onboard computing capabilities. The automotive millimeter-wave (mmWave) radar sensor is an all-weather sensor with a long detection range. Millimeter-wave radar technology is relatively new compared to camera sensors, given the emergence of large bandwidth, high frequency, and high precision radar products. Automotive manufacturers place high demands on automotive radar technology development and testing of the performance indicators of the products themselves.

In-vehicle sensors, such as automotive radar and cameras in autonomous vehicles (AVs), generate a large amount of data. Data sets are transmitted through a high-speed digital interface to electronic control units that trigger advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS) features. Automotive manufacturers need to ensure the performance of the automotive radar sensors and the high-speed digital interface. Manufacturers will reduce investment costs and simplify the testing process by using an instrument that can test signal integrity and run compliance tests for the mmWave radar and high-speed digital interfaces.
