Radar Sensor Technology
Radar Sensors for Smarter World
Novelic is proud to introduce its patented mm-Wave radar sensor technology, called NoraSens.
We present our fully integrated radars, which enable the manufacture of miniature and cost-effective systems. These solutions are tailored to match specific application scenarios in many industries. By using NoraSens on targeted environments, we collect and process data to build a wide range of smart applications.
Our unique development approach includes full-custom design or customisation of:
- mm-Wave RFIC
- Antenna Systems
- Signal processing
Integrated and Customised Radar Sensor Modules

Custom Radar Sensors for Your Application
24GHz 60GHz 79GHz
By tailoring all subsystems, we optimise size, shape and function of the module
FULL RADAR SENSOR STORY IN JUST 6 MINUTES
We have all subsystems and IP for custom radar modules available in the house. Depending on the frequency band we use Novelic Radar Chip (for 60GHz Band) or off-the-shelf radar chip (for 24GHz or 79GHz band).
The following is designed inside the radar module:
- mm-Wave Antenna
- mm-Wave Radar IC
- Radar Baseband Processor
- Package and Enclosure
- Embedded Module with interfaces
- Application with HMI
Radar sensor prototypes
Only high level of vertical integration with NoraSens proprietary technology can lead to the cost-effective sensor module solutions.
Sensors are miniature, cost-effective and function without any contact with human body. They are completely safe since mm-Wave frequencies do not penetrate human body, they have characteristics of a light, and their output power is 100 and more times lower than mobile phones. They use 60 GHz non-licensed frequency band (57-64GHz) and 77-81GHz automotive band, allowing world-wide operation. NoraSens unique application related system solutions are based on CONTACTLESS mm-Wave Sensor concepts (mm-Wave integrated RF IC, Signal processing, Antenna systems, Smart packaging), protected by 2 approved and 7 pending patent applications.
Why radar as a sensor?
Generally speaking, radar has earned place in the sensor world, and has a clear distinction compared to other technologies, such as: Infrared, Ultrasonic, Camera, Laser and Lidar.
NOVELIC approach optimises three key parameters:
- Ultra-flexible range of detection (10cm to 80m)
NoraSens technology takes radar one step forward. A full and natural vertical integration is the main advantage of NoraSens radar technology, in comparison to the existing radar sensors.
Therefore, we can achieve:
- Lower price
- Smaller size
- Easier customization
This approach not only improves the radar sensor in existing use cases, but also creates new applications.
