The W1908 Automotive Radar Library provides comprehensive software tools for radar waveform generation, signal modulation, antenna modeling, channel simulation, and signal processing. Simply connect different models to establish unique automotive radar simulation scenarios. Reference designs give you a starting point to implement your design ideas into early simulation and prototyping.

  • Comprehensive models in design flows for automotive radar development and verification; transmit signal generation, transmit channel and antenna, target and environment, receiver channel and antenna, and signal processing
  • Practical workspace examples such as linear FMCW multi-target detection and automotive radar 3D scan
  • Hardware connectivity to Keysight test equipment (arbitrary waveform generator, vector signal generator, and vector signal analyzer) lets you correlate simulations and measured data

Bring your design ideas into real-world automotive radar scenarios

Use the Automotive Radar Library with the Keysight's SystemVue electronic system level simulation platform to integrate critical, safety-conscious, and complicated scenarios into reliable, leading-edge automotive radar designs.

  • Design and develop algorithms such as direction of angle (DOA) and phase comparison
  • Get multi-scatter target parameterized simulation models to visualize the micro-Doppler effects on the target
  • Import antenna pattern files for ground clutter simulation
  • Move from simulation to pilot and prototyping with connectivity to test and measurement instruments. SystemVue platform enables upload and download the data files by adding input and/or output in the schematic workspace

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. Challenges include system simulation of RF and baseband interactions within and between channels along with larger array sizes, bandwidth, frequency, distortion and modulation complexity.

  • Focus on product design, not simulator design. Convenient access to next-generation automotive radar system simulation tools that accurately model complex RF and baseband interactions.
  • Co-simulate with DataFlow time domain and Spectrasys RF system simulators. Easily simulate system metrics with RF impairments.
  • Integrate your workflow with complementary tools for co-simulation with ADS, SS, VSA, MATLAB, and STK. Achieve greater simulation capability.
  • Perform 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 and failure.
  • Validate your design with Keysight instruments using scenarios from system simulation.
