The IMAGEVK-74 Kit: A Revolution in RF Imaging

The IMAGEVK-74 Kit: A Revolution in RF Imaging

Ovi Jacob, Director of Business Development at Vayyar, explains the IMAGEVK-74 4D millimeter-wave imaging kit. Mini-Circuits and Vayyar have teamed up to offer this revolutionary technology allowing researchers to develop their own advanced imaging applications without the otherwise prohibitive costs of developing their own hardware. Users have the ability to transmit and receive signals from 62 to 69 GHz with a resolution bandwidth from 10 to 800 MHz to create everything from near-field imaging to point clouds and more! Learn more about the IMAGEVK-74 on our website: https://www.minicircuits.com/WebStore/vtrig_74.html NOTE: This video refers to the imaging kit by its old product number, VTRIG-74, which has since been renamed to IMAGEVK-74.
