Automotive radar test solution advances autonomous driving safety

March 09, 2018 // By Julien Happich
The Keysight (Santa Rosa, CA) E8740A automotive radar signal analysis and generation solution enables radar-based, advanced driver assistance systems to proactively detect and mitigate risks of collisions.

The solution leverages Keysight’s mmWave technology to provide signal analysis from 3Hz to 110GHz in a continuous sweep. It is able to performs analysis and generation of automotive radar signals across full frequency ranges for 24 GHz, 77 GHz and 79 GHz radar, and provides scalable analysis bandwidth from 2.5 GHz to over 5 GHz, depending on test requirements.

It offers a scalable test platform that covers present and future frequencies and bandwidths with intuitive tools enabling engineers to rapidly identify, isolate or correct crucial design errors with confidence. The Keysight E8740A automotive radar signal analysis and generation solution is designed to deliver precise measurements with greater sensitivity and dynamic range to ensure better SNR, with displayed average noise levels (DANL) of –150 dBm up to110 GHz.

It comes complete with Keysight’s premiere SystemVue Automotive Radar Library (W1908) to easily generate frequency-modulated continuous waveforms (FMCW) and scenarios.
