Precise sensing for consumer applications and IoT systems
Infineon’s 24 GHz portfolio covers multiple use cases including motion, direction of motion, speed, distance or position measurements. Radar technology offers unique benefits which are not possible with traditional sensing technologies. Whether you require increased motion detection range coverage for outdoor lighting, an automated door that opens only if someone actually wants to walk through or a small form factor solution to enable soft landing in your multicopter – our radar provides you with the ability to make your sensing applications perform in a way previously not possible.
The BGT24 family is the largest and highest integrated 24GHz ISM band radar transceiver family currently in the market, providing a range of different transmitter and receiver channel configurations, supporting different application requirements. The BGT24MTR11 combines one transmit and one receive channel, the BGT24MTR12 one transmit and two receive channels, and the BGT24MR2 two receive channels which enables to add receiving channels in combination with the BGT24MTR11.
Next to the BGT24M versions, there are also two low-power radar chips. The BGT24LTR11, the smallest 24 GHz MMIC in the market, is a low power radar transceiver that combines one transmit and one receive channel. This chip is also featured in the DEMO SENSE2GOL PULSE for low-power motion sensing and in the DEMO DISTANCE2GOL for low-power distance measurements. The BGT24LTR22 is a two transmitter and receiver channel chip which enables tracking functionalities.
In addition to the Infineon 24 GHz MMIC chips, Infineon provides a continuously expanding range of evaluation and demo boards to support the testing and development of radar in multiple applications. All boards are provided with documentation, hardware design files, base level software to support ease-of-use and faster to market integration. Many of the demo kits are also supported by the Infineon Toolbox.
