Elektra Awards 2023 | Category: Automotive Electronics Award

We are delighted to share that our groundbreaking product, the SC1260AR3 Radar Sensor, has been selected as a finalist in the highly competitive Elektra Awards in the Automotive Electronics category! 

This is an incredible recognition of the innovation and excellence we've poured into our work, and we are tremendously excited about this achievement.

The Elektra Awards ceremony, scheduled for November 29th at the Grosvenor House Hotel in London, promises to be an evening of celebration and recognition for industry excellence.

Product Overview and Functionality

The SC1260AR3 radio-frequency ranging sensor for automotive interior sensing applications utilizes the 60GHz frequency band and time-division multiplexing (TDM-MIMO) operation with multiple transmitting and receiving antennas that can detect the position and movement of passengers in a vehicle with maximum accuracy.

It has an all-in-one configuration that incorporates antennas and radar signal operation circuits, to achieve maximum detection accuracy in an ultra-low-power, ultra-compact package. The high-precision sensors use a wide band of 6.8GHz (57.1 to 63.9GHz) with an expanded number of receiving antennas by TDM-MIMO operation and built-in radar signal operation circuits for range-finding and angle calculation. The devices enable easy acquisition of three-dimensional (3D) position information without requiring advanced expertise in high-frequency devices and signal operation. It combines antennas, RF circuits, AD converters, FIFO memory, SPI interface, and intelligent power control sequencer for flexible duty cycle control. Power required is only 0.72mW at 0.1% duty cycle operation.

The SC1260 is a highly integrated device enabling easy hardware design.

These capabilities make the SC1260AR3 optimal for automotive interior sensing applications such as tracking the position and movements of occupants as well as for vital sensing, gesture control and security monitoring.

The SC1260AR3 complies with the global broadband 60GHz radio equipment standard and is designed for Automotive Qualification AECQ100, Grade 2. Moreover, TDM-MIMO operation enables high-precision sensing, such as the detection of passengers when three people are sitting in a row inside the vehicle.
