Next gen automotive ultra-wideband ICs combine secure ranging, short-range radar
EP&T MagazineElectronics automotive power semiconductor semiconductor single-chip Ultra-Wideband UWB
NXP Trimension NCJ29D6 fully integrated automotive single-chip Ultra-Wideband (UWB) family combining next-generation secure and precise real-time localization with short-range radar to address multiple use cases with a single system, including secure car access, child presence detection, intrusion alert, gesture recognition and more. Product family includes the highly integrated NCJ29D6B next generation UWB device for secure car access, delivering enhanced ranging performance, reduced system costs, higher security and turn-key software. Product line also includes the pin-to-pin compatible NCJ29D6A, the industry’s first automotive device combining both ranging and short-range UWB radar into a single chip with an integrated MCU. This enables OEMs to transform a single UWB-based car access system into a fully flexible, multi-purpose platform, enabling multiple use cases with the same hardware and allowing OEMs to eliminate redundant systems and reduce cost, space and weight.
