Omniradar RIC60A

Omniradar RIC60A is operating in V-Band FMCW Radar on a single chip in the size of 7×7 mm. RIC60A can be configured via an SPI interface and can measure Doppler frequencies and high-precision distances or distance changes.[1]

It includes integrated antennas, one transmitter and two independent receivers. The two receivers make it possible to determine the direction of the reflecting objects using the monopulse technique.[1] With its 7 GHz transmitters bandwidth, the chip can achieve higher position and speed accuracy than comparable products.[2]

Possible applications are manifold and include for ranging, velocity and imaging, for example, simple and cheap motion detectors with differentiated tasks:

The manufacturer offers an Omniradar Radar Development kit for the RIC60A complete with an USB-interface board and sample MATLAB scripts for radar measurements and algorithm development on Personal Computer.
