60GHz 2D Detection model SC1221AR3

The SC1221AR3 is a low power CMOS 60GHz 2D radar sensor device. It specializes in high-precision detection of two-dimensional movements, and is capable of detecting multiple moving objects in a specific area.

This sensor is ideal for two-dimensional motion detection. It incorporates a 1x4 linear array receiver antenna to detect azimuth, speed and distance of multiple moving objects. Although the angle detection is only available in the azimuth direction, it is two times more precise than SC1220AT2, which is suitable for detecting a person entering a specific area.

60GHz 3D Detection model SC1220AT2

The SC1220AT2 is a low power CMOS 60GHz 3D radar sensor device. It detects three-dimensional movements such as the lifting and lowering of a person's hands. The most suitable sensor for detecting three-dimensional motions.

It comes with a built-in antenna of 2 transmission systems and 2x2 reception array, and can detect azimuth, elevation angle, speed and distance. In addition to presence detection, the device can sense the position of a person’s hands in a three-dimensional space, which is ideal for operations requiring gestures.
