imec/Panasonic report CMOS-based transceivers for mm-Wave radar systems

At February’s 2015 International Solid State Circuits Conference (ISSCC), imec and Panasonic presented a transceiver chip for phase-modulated continuous-wave radar at 79 GHz, a result the two bodies say demonstrates the potential of downscaled CMOS for cheap millimeter-wave (mm-wave) radar systems that can be used for accurate presence and motion detection.
