Presenter: Dr. Tero Kiuru, VTT
This web presentation covers the design of a frequency-modulated continuous wave (FMCW) MIMO radar system with Cadence® AWR Design Environment® software. The purpose of the system is for short-range high-resolution localization of nearby moving objects. Four-channel transmitter and receiver chips are designed using a 130nm SiGe process. The total number of TX and RX channels can be scaled by the number of chips in the system while still maintaining phase coherence between the channels. Measurements are made with a 4-TX channel and 8-RX channel system and simulation versus measurement results are also presented.
Dr. Tero Kiuru is an expert in characterization, modeling, design, and testing of mmWave and THz front-end components. He has participated in the European Space Agency’s PhD program and was a visiting postdoctoral scholar at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory (NASA/Caltech) in Pasadena, California, working with mmWave receiver devices. Dr. Kiuru is currently a senior scientist at the VTT Technical Research Centre of Finland Ltd, where his research interests include mmWave receiver and radar applications. Dr. Kiuru received his DSc (Tech) degree in electrical engineering from Aalto University, Espoo, Finland.
