Chip from Vayyar provides a high resolution, mobile and cost-effective 3D imaging solution

Vayyar Imaging has announced the launch of what it is calling the “world’s most advanced” System on a Chip (SoC) for mmWave 3D imaging that integrates an unprecedented number of transceivers and an advanced DSP to create a high-resolution contour with high accuracy.

The Vayyar chip covers imaging and radar bands from 3GHz-81GHz with 72 transmitters and 72 receivers in one chip. Enhanced by an integrated, high-performance DSP with large internal memory, Vayyar’s sensor does not need any external CPU to execute complex imaging algorithms.

According to Vayyar, its chip supports very high bandwidth, producing unprecedented levels of accuracy and a high-resolution image. The sensor differentiates between objects and people, determines location while mapping large areas, and creates a 3D image of the environment. It can also simultaneously detect and classify a variety of targets in real-time.

By using wideband radio waves, the sensor can penetrate different types of materials and operates in every weather or light condition, making it applicable for the automotive and industrial markets.

“Together with the chip,” begins Raviv Melamed, co-founder, CEO, and Chairman of Vayyar, “we provide our customers with a full suite of software and advanced algorithms to expedite their ability to develop products based on our technology. This has created a synergy that is propelling an accelerated path to market for a wide range of products that can help people to better care for their elders, detect cancer at an early stage, make our homes more secure without compromising privacy, and improve car safety in every weather condition.”
