Planar Antenna Array Concept for mm-wave Radar Sensor Application
NovelIC IP portfolio covers special antenna solution to be integrated in the future small HW modules as a part of the sensor systems. The antenna solution offers following features:
• High gain antenna with 20dB directivity and planar size of 18 x 18mm.
• Ultra wideband frequency band covering complete band from 55 GHz to 74 GHz with S11 better than -10dB. With the small adaptation automotive 77-79 GHz band may be covered simultaneously, with a complete 60 GHz band.
• Planar feeding network.
• Very low manufacturing tolerance dependency on antenna performance allowing cost assembly and production.
• Ideal scattering behavior optimized for system requirements of vital signs sensor, driver fatigues sensor and seat occupation sensor.
• Ability to be realized in polymer process.
•Very wideband frequency matching allowing low cost and tolerance independent manufacturing
•Covers simultaneously ISM 60 GHz band and automotive 77-79 GHz Band, providing about 18 dBi gain (after antenna losses) .
