mmWave 3D imaging SoC evaluation kit from Vayyar

Vayyar Imaging has launched a mmWave Evaluation Kit (EVK): Walabot-60Ghz.

Walabot-60Ghz is said to provide users with the “groundbreaking capabilities” of Vayyar’s high-resolution 3D imaging chip, alongside an SDK/API, facilitating rapid development, integration and scaling of products. The kit includes a chip with a 40 Transceivers array (40 Tx/Rx), complete with FOV embedded antennas and wide-band 60 GHz imaging radar.

The Walabot-60Ghz EVK delivers a wide field of view along with high-resolution imaging, enabling the development of advanced applications for smart home, robotics, retail, and medical, among other verticals.

Potential uses include obstacle avoidance, perimeter protection, ultrasonic replacement, automatic door openers, people tracking, posture detection, short range imaging and even point cloud technologies.

The Walabot-60Ghz system is comprises the following :

  • The Walabot-60Ghz RF Sensor Unit
  • The EVK Engine – Hosts software that performs signal processing functions
  • Web GUI – User interface client software that communicates with the EVK Engine via a

TCP/IP connection

  • API Client – Optional, customer-developed software that communicates with the EVK Engine via a TCP/IP connection
