The TC3A's SPU 2.0 signal processing unit is an evolution of Infineon's radar signal processing accelerator. It features reduced latencies for fast Fourier transformation, advanced interference reduction functions, and various modulation schemes. This allows first-tier customers to improve radar resolution at a low cost.
The TC3A communicates with downstream sensor fusion logic via a fast Monolithic Microwave Integrated Circuit (MMIC) interface at up to 600 Mbps. In order to protect the device against cyber attacks, it is equipped with a hardware security module (HSM) according to EVITA Full specification.
Samples of the TC3A will be available to selected customers from 2022. Infineon will present its current radar offering, including TC397A, at the OctoberTech 2019 Technology Forum in Mountain View, California on October 17, 2019.
