The latest chip, says the company, integrates an "unprecedented" number of transceivers and an advanced digital signal processor (DSP) to enable a high-resolution, mobile, and cost-effective 3D imaging solution. The device covers imaging and radar bands from 3 to 81 GHz and integrates 72 transmitters and 72 receivers.
The company's sensor differentiates between objects and people, determines location while mapping large areas, and creates a 3D image of the environment, and does not need any external CPU to execute complex imaging algorithms. The sensor can simultaneously detect and classify a variety of targets in real time.
"Radio wave imaging is a powerful technology, which was dormant for decades," says Raviv Melamed, co-founder, CEO, and Chairman of Vayyar. "Vayyar's new sensor is finally unleashing its potential."
The sensor can penetrate different types of materials and operates in every weather or light condition, making it applicable for automotive and industrial markets. According to the company, the technology is currently being used in multiple applications including construction, elderly care, breast cancer imaging, automotive, smart home, retail, and robotics.
Along with the chip, the company provides customers with software and advanced algorithms to expedite development of products based on the technology.
