77 GHz radars enhance automotive safety by enabling vehicles to identify dangerous situations and prevent crashes. They are used to detect different kinds of obstacles such as other vehicles and pedestrians in the 30 to 250 meter range, even in low visibility conditions.
The information provided by the radars is used in ADAS systems responsible for multiple applications including autonomous emergency braking and adaptive cruise control.
STRADA770M radar transceiver, covering the millimeter wave (mmWave) frequency band from 76 to 81 GHz, is designed to provide an optimized solution for high-end ADAS systems. It includes 3 transmitters, 4 receivers and a chirp modulator.
L5965 is ST first choice for power management in Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS), being specifically designed to have a flexible and configurable power scheme and to support applications that need compliancy to Automotive Safety Integrity Level (ASIL) requirements.
