  • Next-Generation ADAS Radar Design With Advanced Vector DSP Processors

    Vault Recording: TBD

    Radar is one of the key Automotive sensor technologies due to its effectiveness and low cost. However, cost has dictated hardware solutions with little room to upgrade or add features. With the advent of advanced vector DSP processors and the need to further increase sensor and overall system reliability, new algorithms may be introduced and data from multiple radar sensors may be fused in new and novel ways.

    In this talk, we will look at what it takes to develop a radar application on an embedded vector DSP processor and look forward to advances in radar technology. The presentation will include the following sections:

    1. An Overview of an FMCW (Frequency Modulated Continuous Wave) radar application in which we review key application components (DBF, rFFT, dFFT, CFAR, MUSIC) and look at trends in next generation radar technology, such as MIMO.
    2. Implementation considerations include the translation of application components to DSP kernels, determination of algorithm precision & data type requirements and sub-system designs using DSP cores.
    3. An example implementation on an advanced vector DSP will demonstrate the principles discussed above and provide a detailed performance, power and area profiling of the design with various input configurations.

    Takeaway

    In this talk, we will look at what it takes to develop a radar application on an embedded vector DSP processor and look forward to advances in radar technology. The audience will learn how to enhance and innovate ADAS radar solutions utilizing advanced vector DSP processors.
