Analog Devices has announced the acquisition of SymeoGmbH, a company specializing in RADAR hardware and software for emerging autonomous automotive and industrial applications. The acquisition is hoped to pave the way for higher performance RADAR solutions, enabling more accurate sensing in autonomous systems.
ADI said that Symeo’s innovative signal processing algorithms will enable it to offer customers a RADAR platform with significant improvements in angular accuracy and resolution.
Symeo’s unique RF and sensor technology enables real-time position detection and distance measurement.The tech enables system integrators and original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) to offer high precision RADAR solutions in rough industrial environments and complements ADI’s expanding portfolio of market solutions in this space.
Symeo’s RADAR technology was originally developed within Siemens AG and subsequently spun-out as an independent entity in 2005 by the Siemens Technology Accelerator GmbH (STA), the company noted in the announcement.
“Symeo has become a technology leader in industrial RADAR solutions – with the completion of this transaction, the combination with the technology platform and broad market reach of ADI will ensure further innovations not only in the industrial space but also in the automotive and aerospace markets,” said Dr. Rudolf Freytag, CEO of the Siemens Technology Accelerator.
