New RADAR Sensor Demonstrator Includes RH850/V1R-M Microcontroller
from Renesas Autonomy™ Platform
and Analog Devices' Drive360™ Advanced
28nm CMOS RADAR Technology
NORWOOD, Mass. & TOKYO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--
Analog Devices, Inc. (NASDAQ: ADI), the leading global high-performance
analog technology company, and Renesas Electronics Corporation (TSE:
6723), a premier supplier of advanced semiconductor solutions, announced
today they are collaborating on a system-level 77/79-GHz RADAR sensor
demonstrator to improve Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS)
applications and enable autonomous driving vehicles. The new
demonstrator combines two cutting-edge technologies that include the
RH850/V1R-M microcontroller (MCU) from the Renesas autonomy Platform and
ADI's Drive360 advanced 28nm CMOS RF-to-bits technology. The seamless
system-level operation of these two technologies will make driving safer
by enabling earlier detection of smaller and faster moving objects at
greater distances. It will also lower RADAR system integration efforts
and reduce evaluation risks for automotive OEMs and Tier One suppliers.
"RADAR sensors play a crucial role for all ADAS or automated driving
functions," said Jean-Francois Chouteau, vice president of Renesas
Global ADAS Centre. "This cooperation ideally combines the best of ADI
and Renesas assets to deliver performance and enable OEMs and Tier One
suppliers to reduce development cost and time to market. We are
delighted to join forces with ADI, whose 28nm solution provides
cutting-edge RF performance for target detection."
"Analog Devices' collaboration with Renesas will be a key enabler for
the highest performance RADAR systems," said Chris Jacobs, general
manager, ADAS & Automotive Safety, Analog Devices. "This innovative
system approach will significantly reduce risk by providing digital
interoperability at the system level for our customers. The new
RH850/V1R-M MCU, coupled with ADI's high-performance Drive360 RADAR
platform, will bring unparalleled performance to advanced ADAS and
autonomous driving systems."
