Infineon and Google to develop 60GHz radar technology for gesture sensing and presence detection

Infineon Technologies AG of Munich, Germany says that it is working with Google's Advanced Technology and Projects group (ATAP) to develop a radar-based sensing solution using Infineon's 60GHz silicon germanium (SiGe) transceiver technology together with RF transceiver, antenna and control electronics integrated in a single package. Infineon already provides solutions for wireless communications of the future to other divisions at Google.

First implementations of the new sensor, which provide gesture recognition and presence detection capability for a range of future devices, were demonstrated by Google ATAP at its Google I/O Developers Conference in San Francisco (28-29 May).

The new sensor provides Google ATAP and its developer community with a compact and low-power implementation suitable for integration and use in both mobile and fixed devices. Potential applications include wearables, the Internet of Things and automotive applications.

"Infineon is a recognized leader in radar-based sensor ICs, providing component and system-level solutions for consumer, automotive safety, industrial and commercial sensing and machine vision applications – markets that are expected to grow significantly in the coming years," reckons Philipp Schierstaedt, VP & general manager of Infineon's RF & Sensors business line.
