Infineon BGT60ATR24C Automotive Radar Sensor
XENSIV™ 60GHz radar sensor for automotive sensing
The Infineon BGT60ATR24C is an automotive 60 GHz radar sensor that enables ultra-wide bandwidth FMCW operation in a small package. Sensor configuration and data acquisition are enabled with a digital interface and the integrated state machine enables independent data acquisition with power mode optimization for lowest power consumption.
The core functionality of BGT60ATR24C by Infineon is to transmit frequency modulated continuous wave (FMCW) signal via one of the two transmitter channel (TX) and receive the echo signals from the target object on the four receiving channels (RX). Each receiver path includes a baseband filtering, a VGA, as well as an ADC.
The digitized output is stored in a FIFO. The data are transferred to an external host, microcontroller unit (MCU) or application processor (AP), to run radar signal processing.
