Mini-Circuits has expanded its collaboration with 4D radar imaging pioneer, Vayyar to offer researchers in the radio frequency and microwave industry and academia a ready-to-use, 4D millimeter wave (mmWave) imaging and sensing application development platform.
The IMAGEVK-74 is a mmWave imaging and sensing development kit powered by Vayyar’s high-resolution integrated RF transceiver technology and radar IP. This kit enables researchers and application developers to explore and rapidly develop mmWave imaging and sensing applications without the cost and overhead of building their own bespoke hardware. Potential applications already include industrial IoT, robotics, smart homes, motion and obstacle detection, vehicular operator and passenger detection, medical patient monitoring and many more.
The kit comprises Vayyar’s high-performance transceiver chip with the entire mmWave front-end and analog baseband signal chain for up to 40 antennas. Key features of the kit include:
Out-of-the-box ready mmWave transceiver module for 4D imaging and sensing application development
20 transmit by 20 receive integrated antenna array for high-resolution 4D imaging
Flexible operation anywhere within the 62 to 69 GHz band
Real-time data processing of transmit and receive pair phasors for each swept frequency point
Pre-configured profiles to adjust receiver resolution and imaging processing time
Complete API for Python® and Matlab®
Mini-Circuits President, Ted Heil commented, “Our partnership with Vayyar began with a shared mission to provide innovative, hands-on learning tools to university students and educators in the RF/microwave field. The IMAGEVK-74 builds on that effort to put Vayyar’s extraordinary radar technology into the hands of researchers working to develop the next generation of imaging and sensing applications. We’re very pleased to continue expanding this collaboration.”
CEO of Vayyar, Raviv Melamed commented, “We are delighted to continue and expand our partnership with Mini-Circuits. The launch of our IMAGEVK-74 development kit now brings advanced and affordable radar functionality for everyone to explore.”
IMAGEVK-74 4D mmWave imaging and sensing development kits are available now from the Mini-Circuits website, with significant discounts for university students, educators and researchers.
