A vehicle’s ADAS system contains a specialized electronic component called a car radar processor, sometimes referred to as a radar signal processor or radar signal controller. It is intended to decipher and analyses the signals obtained from radar sensors mounted on the front, sides, or back of the vehicle.
The processor’s main job is to identify objects, determine their locations, rates, and trajectories, and then communicate this data to other ADAS system components for additional evaluation and decision-making.
The various radar sensors that are strategically positioned on the vehicle feed the automobile radar processor raw radar data in order for it to function. These sensors emit electromagnetic waves, and they track how long it takes for the waves to return after striking nearby objects.
The processor then examines these reflected signals to calculate the objects’ distance, relative speed, and size.
The Global Car radar processor market accounted for $XX Billion in 2023 and is anticipated to reach $XX Billion by 2030, registering a CAGR of XX% from 2024 to 2030.
ADAS comprehensive solution specialist CubTEK is one of the first businesses to use S32R41 in production.Road safety will be improved by its first advanced radar sensor for commercial vehicles of the future. The newest member of the scalable S32R radar processor family has entered production from NXP® Semiconductors.
The high-performance S32R41 is essential for building high-resolution corner and front-facing long-range radars since it is designed to meet the more stringent processing requirements needed to support L2+ autonomous driving and advanced driver assistance system (ADAS) solutions.
For its new high-end radar sensor system, ADAS comprehensive solution specialist CubTEK will use NXP’s S32R41 processors and TEF82xx RFCMOS transceivers.The advanced blind spot information system (BSIS) in next-generation commercial vehicles will be able to employ this technology to help drivers improve road safety for vulnerable road users including pedestrians and cyclists.
CubTEK can take advantage of its earlier work on 4D imaging radar with NXP’s S32R45 thanks to the scalable radar platform of highly integrated CPUs and radar one-chip from NXP, which offers a high degree of architecture compatibility and software reuse.
The NXP S32R41 radar processor is capable of handling advanced corner radar applications for both passenger cars and commercial vehicles, like CubTEK’s BSIS, as well as high-resolution long-range radar applications.
The architecture uses high-performance SPT (Signal Processing Toolbox) and Cadence BBE32 DSP radar processing accelerators to establish an ideal processing chain and offers functional safety levels up to ASIL D in accordance with ISO 26262. High angular resolution radar systems are made possible by the high-performance processing ability with dual MIPI CSI2 interfaces and 8 MB of local SRAM.
Additionally, the ISO 21434-ready hardware security engine (HSE) with EdgeLockTM compliance offers over-the-air (OTA) update functionality. The S32R41 processor from NXP and the radar software development kit (RSDK) make it simple for programmers to create and improve high-resolution 77 GHz radar sensor applications.
