NXP rolls high-performance radar reference platform

October 02, 2018 // By Christoph Hammerschmidt
Even though recently news about innovations in lidar technology has been in the limelight, radar remains one of the most important pillars of automotive sensor technology. The manufacturers are working on the next generation of radar sensors with significantly increased resolution and application possibilities in the near field, even in the vehicle interior. Against this backdrop, NXP has developed a new reference platform for vehicle radar systems. It helps developers to reduce time to market for radar-based driver assistance systems.

Current automotive market analysis projects that by 2020, radar technology will be in 50% of all newly produced cars. The safety related benefits of automotive radar, new autonomous vehicle development requirements and emerging safety requirements from organizations such as the New Car Assessment Program (NCAP), have triggered rapid growth with steep implementation challenges for car makers and other radar focused developers. Adoption of these once premium safety features into mainstream production lines is fueling a need for faster time to market

NXPs new reference platform, the RDK-S32R274, combines the company’s S32R processors, RF Transceiver and Antenna design in a very compact yet powerful device. The solution is the only currently available automotive-grade radar development platform designed to meet the stringent functional, performance, and safety requirements of the industry, claims Roger Keen, Head of Product Marketing at NXP. This solution is designed to accelerate the development and deployment of radar into production vehicles and includes a full ecosystem of tools that aim to lower development costs and spur radar application adoption worldwide.

The NXP radar solution, featuring the S32R27 processor, the TEF810x CMOS transceiver, and the FS8410 Power management IC, is designed to help customers accelerate time to market by lowering the barriers of entry to radar application development with hardware, software and tools that ease radar implementations.
