A new ultra-compact, low-cost 60GHz radar module from Mistral is designed for low power, self-calibrating, ultra-accurate radar systems in an industrial environment.
Mistral Solutions has announced its USB-powered, production-ready 60GHz Radar on Module [RoM] for Industrial Automation applications. The 60GHz RoM is a highly-integrated ultra-compact solution based on TI’s newly launched IWR6843 Antenna on Package (AoP) Chipset. The product is ideal for applications such as robotics, industrial safe zone & free space monitoring, fluid level monitoring, people counting, occupancy detection, building automation, security, parking management and traffic management.
“Mistral’s 60GHz Radar on Module will be a benchmark in Industrial Radars, not only in terms of its footprint, but also offering tremendous functional & performance capabilities.” said Srinivas Panapakam, VP – PES Sales & Business development, Mistral Solutions. “The RoM is capable of transforming various industrial applications such as factory automation, building automation, material management, surveillance & traffic monitoring” he added.
Mistral has worked with Texas Instruments on the mmWave Radar along with sensor fusion and in developing reference designs for IWR6843 AoP Chipset.
