Aptiv’s Third Generation of 77 GHz-Based Short Range Radar (SRR3) Complete Teardown Report 2018 – ResearchAndMarkets.com


Third Generation of 77 GHz-Based Short Range Radar (SRR3) Complete
Teardown Report”
report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com’s

Based on a complete teardown analysis of the Aptiv Radar, the report
provides the bill-of-material (BOM) and the manufacturing cost of the
radar sensor. The report also includes a complete physical analysis of
the MMIC. Also, the complete cost analysis and a selling price
estimation are calculated.

This year, we have seen radar applications use two frequencies, 24 GHz
and 77GHz. For a long time, 24 GHz has been dedicated to Short Range
Radar (SRR) detection applications like Blind Spot Detection (BSD) or
Rear Side Detection (RSD). But due to spectrum regulations, the 24 GHz
ultra-wide band (UWB) will soon phase out in Europe and the USA. This,
and the need for higher performance in emerging radar applications,
makes 24 GHz unattractive.

And now manufacturers have turned their interest to the 76-81 GHz band.
Aptiv, formerly known as Delphi, has taken a step ahead of its
competitors since the first generation of SRR radar by using 77GHz for
BSD. Using this band has allowed to Aptiv to propose high resolution and
accuracy SRR with even smaller form factor in the third generation, SRR3.

The SRR3 device, FCC certified in 2015, is a side and backside SRR. It
is designed for various Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS)
applications such as capturing the blind spot, assisting lane changes
and warnings against cross traffic. It features three different PCB
substrates with two dedicated to Radio Frequency (RF) signal processing
and transmission.

Working in the 76-77 GHz un-licensed band, the device contains forty
H-pole planar antennas fed by cavity waveguides. With its small form
factor, it could compete with the standard dual board radar modules.

Compared to its competitors, Aptiv is still the only one that uses bare
die Monolithic Microwave Integrated Circuits (MMICs) and cavity
waveguides. In this module, the innovation is in the single chip from
Infineon that integrates four receive (Rx) and two transmit (Tx)
channels using SiGe Heterojunction Bipolar Transistor (HBT) technology.
And, the RF Printed Circuit Board (PCB) substrate uses glass-reinforced
hydrocarbon ceramic laminate, completely PTFE free.
