New Japan Radio Co., Ltd. provides a micro-module of complete radar sensing solution

embedding Infineon's XENSIV™ radar sensors

Microwave division of New Japan Radio Co., Ltd.(NJR) has contributed to manufacturing in various fields of microwave components for over 60 years since the establishment of their company. With the rapid innovations in manufacturing, microwave applications are spreading from satellite communications and radar into new fields such as sensing and medical treatment. NJR is combining the microwave technologies that it has cultivated over many years with advanced semiconductor technologies to provide robust support for customers' product development to meet the market's emerging requirements.

NJR has potentially developed the world's smallest 60 GHz millimeter wave smart sensor micro-module, which embeds Infineon’s XENSIV™ 60 GHz radar MMIC and PSoC™ 6 microcontroller. NJR uses epoxy resin molding technology for packaging to create one of the smallest 60 GHz Radar System-on-Module. In addition, the signal processing functions can be embedded, so engineers can adopt them without having to develop complex algorithms by themselves.

60GHz smart sensor micro-module

The module could be the world's smallest-class sensor module, certified with Radio Act approval as a stand-alone module. Infineon's XENSIV™ 60GHz radar sensor IC and PSOC™ 6 microcontroller for RF control and signal processing are built-in an IC-like ultra-compact package of 10 x 13.4 x 1.2 mm.

Moreover, a Smart Entrance Counter Solution and Presence Detection as a turnkey solution, provided by Infineon, are available.

Furthermore, NJR is also developing human vital sensing and gesture and motion detection as a complete solution.

Application examples:

  • Portables wearables, multimedia devices, gaming and VRs, smart home appliances for consumer
  • Industrial robotics, building automation, service robotics for Industrial
