Infineon’s 77GHz radar ICs used in first series production car with autonomous driving features

Infineon Technologies AG of Munich, Germany says that it is supplying key components for the Audi A8, the first series production car featuring level 3 automated driving.

With level 3, drivers can temporarily take their hands off the steering wheel under certain conditions. For example, the A8 allows this when parking and exiting, in slow-moving traffic or in traffic congestion.

“Around 90% of innovations in the car are driven by electronics and hence by semiconductors,” says Peter Schiefer, president of Infineon’s Automotive Division. “We have been a recognized semiconductor partner of Audi for many years.”

For safe automated driving, the Audi A8 uses sensors, microcontrollers and power semiconductors from Infineon. Specifically, silicon germanium (SiGe)-based radar sensor chips from the RASIC family are installed in the front and corner radar, sending and receiving 77GHz signals and forwarding these onto the central driver assistance controller.
