Austin-based startup uses Arteris IP interconnect to optimize on-chip communications for automotive radar-on-chip (RoC) systems
CAMPBELL, Calif. – June 25, 2019 – Arteris IP, the world’s leading supplier of innovative, silicon-proven network-on-chip (NoC) interconnect intellectual property, today announced that Uhnder’s new automotive radar-on-chip (RoC) uses the Arteris FlexNoC IP as the on-chip interconnect.
Uhnder is a fast-moving startup developing highly integrated sensing, cognition and communication products for the automotive industry. The Uhnder RoC is unique because it integrates the radar analog front end, baseband, digital front end, digital back end, and processing all on a single CMOS die. Because it operates at 76-81 GHz and uses Digital Code Modulation (DCM) technology, the Uhnder RoC offers 4D High Contrast Resolution (HCR), delivering range and accuracy not possible with other solutions.
“Our choice of on-chip interconnect IP was very important to our success because of the unprecedented extent of on-chip integration and our huge bandwidth requirements,” said Manju Hegde, CEO and Cofounder of Uhnder. “The Arteris FlexNoC interconnect IP helped us to surpass our performance goals while avoiding routing congestion in our tightly integrated single-chip radar.”
“We are excited to have the opportunity to contribute to Uhnder’s success and provide a key technology that helps facilitate their disruptive automotive RoC,” said K. Charles Janac, President and CEO of Arteris. “Uhnder’s use of Arteris IP interconnect technology is proof of our products’ ability to meet and exceed the expectations of the world’s most innovative autonomous driving technology companies.”
Founded to develop disruptive technologies for sensing, cognition and communication, Uhnder is delivering the industry’s first digital automotive radar using a combination of advanced CMOS and Digital Code Modulation (DCM) technology. Uhnder’s approach and technology promises to transform the automotive industry by changing the way radars work and significantly improving performance with the additional benefits of smaller size, lower power and lower cost.
