Vayyar Imaging unveils advanced CMOS SOC for mmWave 3D imaging
Vayyar Imaging announced the launch of what it says is the world's most advanced system on a chip (SOC) for mmWave 3D imaging. The device integrates a number of transceivers and advanced DSP to create high-resolution contour with high accuracy.
The new Vayyar chip covers imaging and radar bands from 3 GHz–81 GHz with 72 transmitters and 72 receivers in one chip. Enhanced by an integrated, high-performance DSP with large internal memory, Vayyar’s sensor does not need any external CPU to execute complex imaging algorithms.
The chip is designed to support very high bandwidth, which produces an accurate, high-resolution image. The sensor differentiates between objects and people, determines location while mapping large areas, and creates a 3D image of the environment. The sensor can simultaneously detect and classify a variety of targets in real time.
By using wideband radio waves, the sensor can penetrate different types of materials and reportedly operates in every weather or light condition, making it applicable for the automotive and industrial markets. The technology is currently being used in applications across a wide range of sectors, including: automotive, robotics, construction, elderly care, breast cancer imaging, smart home, and retail.
