Integrated Device Technology, Inc. (IDT) (NASDAQ :IDTI ) announced today a strategic partnership with Steradian Semiconductor Pvt. Ltd. to deliver ultra-high resolution 4D mmWave imaging RADAR for emerging industrial, security, medical, and autonomous vehicle markets.
Steradian Semiconductor is a fabless semiconductor company based out of Bangalore, India. Steradian is founded by industry experts with decades of experience in designing cellular/RF and microwave transceiver ICs. Their unique IP has enabled IDT to offer highly differentiated “SenseVerse” series of RADAR transceiver ICs to our customers.
The IDTÂ® SenseVerse SVR4410 IC is a multi-channel high resolution MIMO RADAR device that operates in the 76-81 GHz frequency band offering superior interference performance and the highest number of channels per device in the industry. With integrated beamforming and support for multi-device aggregation, the SVR4410 provides best-in-class angular resolution, range, and power consumption in a very small form factor. The two companies are collaborating on a series of roadmap ICs with increasing levels of integration and enable customersâ€™ adoption by means of providing radar modules with integrated antennas, SVR transceiver ICs, radar processing IC and DSP algorithms.
“IDTâ€™s SenseVerse RADAR family will add new dimension to sensing and vision, causing a disruptive change in Industry 4.0 and similar end markets needing high resolution solutions,” stated Sailesh Chittipeddi, executive vice president, global operations and chief technology officer at IDT. “IDTâ€™s novel imaging RADAR architecture based on mmWave technology will be key to reliable and autonomous operation in various climatic conditions and continues IDTâ€™s tradition of delivering high value-added solutions for its customers.”
“IDTâ€™s SenseVerse RADAR family offers all weather high resolution sensing and will enhance and complement human and computer vision,” said Gireesh Rajendran, CEO of Steradian Semiconductor. “IDTâ€™s SVR4410 and roadmap ICs together with Steradianâ€™s RF expertise will offer exceptional value to a wide variety of application spaces.”
IDTâ€™s SenseVerse RADAR products are currently sampling at selected customers.
