A fundamental trend in automotive radar technology is to use wider signal bandwidth in the E-band. While more bandwidth enables better range resolution, the high carrier frequency in the E-band enables smaller and denser antenna patterns with better beam steering and azimuth resolution.
In this workshop, the challenges of automotive radar design and the necessary test and measurement technology are explained.
In a live demonstration, we will show the in-depth signal analysis of a pre-commercial radar module with 4 GHz signal bandwidth, using an ultra-wideband signal and spectrum analyzer with special software tools for FMCW signal analysis.
