In the Future Your Entire Car Could Be a Radar Antenna, Says IDTechEx
Radar miniaturization is one of the key trends that IDTechEx has identified in "Automotive Radar 2022-2042". There are several factors that are contributing towards this, such as moving from 24GHz to 77GHz which shrinks the antenna size. Or, transitioning from SiGe-BiCMOS based transceivers to Si-CMOS ones, which reduces the number of discrete computational components and shrinks the circuit board. So, with the size continuing to come down, IDTechEx asks, how small can it get?

Uhnder — Digital Code Modulation Automotive Radar
Uhnder is a start up working on radar on chip technologies for automotive and other applications. Uhnder use a 28nm Silicon CMOS technology to construct a single chip with 192 virtual channels giving high imaging potential. Uhnder has also moved away from the widely frequency modulated continuous wave emission pattern in facour of digital code modulation, this brings increased performance and robustness to interference.
