Las Vegas, NV (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- NXP Semiconductors N.V. (NASDAQ:NXPI), the world’s largest supplier of automotive semiconductors1, has announced the latest addition to its industry leading 77GHz radar portfolio. Adopted by top global automakers, the NXP MR3003 Radar Transceiver is specifically developed for front or corner radar applications in automated driving, where high resolution and long-range capabilities are needed. The new range of NXP system components enables carmakers to match their requirements to true system solutions, including high performance imaging radar sensing. At CES, NXP and its partners will demonstrate a range of radar applications to enable broadening the role of radar in future cars.
The rise of automated driving changes the landscape for radar. The increased demand for both front view and 360-degree surround view sensing has led automakers to search for the best RF performance, power consumption and sensor size based on the specifics of the application and the in-vehicle location.
NXP’s full suite of radar transceivers completes the industry’s only radar portfolio based on both BiCMOS and advanced RFCMOS process technologies, to match carmaker requirements with a complete system solution. Complemented by the NXP S32R automotive radar processing platform, networking ICs and power management solutions, the NXP radar portfolioenables automakers to develop systems ranging from small, compact radar sensors through high resolution imaging radar sensing applications, enabling broad penetration of radar across the full range of car models. It is estimated that more than 50 percent of all car radar modules shipped in 2017 have utilized NXP radar technology2.
“The MR3003 radar transceiver delivers superior RF output power, low noise and multi-channel operation to enable radar sensors with increased range and improved resolution,” said Patrick Morgan VP & GM Product Line ADAS Modems at NXP. “By implementing high performance products in both SiGe BiCMOS and RFCMOS technologies, NXP offers a unique and broad radar product portfolio that enables automakers to meet radar requirements across the full range of car models.”
