Standard support services (Free of charge):

Basic Support Services, provided free of charge, aim to offer a generic technical helpdesk to the customers for RADAR related topics which include the radar frequency bands at 24 GHz, 60 GHz and 77/79 GHz. This does not include design services or topics requiring substantial design or R&D effort – these are part of CEI’s Premium Services.

 

TECHNICAL INTERFACE AND SUPPORT TO  THE CUSTOMERS

48-hrs response time (at normal working hours) to the customer by email and/or phone to CEI/ RADAR related inquiries.

  • Project requirements
  • RF and baseband feasibility analysis
  • Antenna consultation
  • Radar signal processing possibilities
  • Radar developer kit advice/recommendations
  • Interfaces, communication and documentation guidance

TRAININGS                                                       AND CONSULTANCY

Introductory trainings on various radar topics. Typical duration is 0.5 – 3 hours, online or at CEI’s (Colorado Springs, CO).

  •  Radar basics in theory
  •  Radar basics in practice with Developer-Kit(s)
  • Radar measurements
  • Basics in signal processing

Premium development services:

Premium Development Services are based on specific agreements between a customer and CEI. The technical focus covers antennas, frontends, signal processing, digital design, firmware, software and measurement services for the 24 GHz, 60 GHz and 77/79 GHz radar frequency bands. All RF circuit and antenna designs will be made with CST, digital design will be completed in Altium.

ANTENNA DEVELOPMENT

  • Specific (patch) antenna configurations  Linear and circular polarization
  •  Multi-channel arrays and beamforming (SAR, MIMO)
  • Matched radome design 
    RADAR

IMPLEMENTATION OF DIGITAL SIGNAL PROCESSING

  • Radar firmware implementation on AURIX processors
  • Signal processing algorithms
  • Specific application routines 
    DESIGN

SYSTEM DESIGN:

  • Analysis of system requirements for a given (radar) application
  • Evaluation and comparison of different solutions for a technical problem
  • Specification of a new (radar based) system 
  • Development of a system concept based on a given specification

RADAR FRONTEND  DEVELOPMENT 

  • Multi-channel radar frontends including’s radar chips 
  • Divider-/combiner networks for complex antenna feeding  structures 
  • RF and IF amplifiers and RF filters 

DESIGN OF SPECIFIC DATA INTERFACES:

  • H/W and S/W implementation of different data            interfaces like: 
  • Ethernet (Power-over-Ethernet), CAN bus, SPI, UART 

 

CHARACTERIZATION OF RADAR:

  • Antenna far-field and near-field measurements in anechoic chamber 
  • RF circuit measurements (S-parameters, output power, noise, harmonics) 
  • Radar parameters like EIRP, accuracy, resolution 
  • Customer specific field tests 
  • Pre-FCC testing and validation
