Dallas, Texas 07/22/2015 (Financialstrend) – Freescale Semiconductor Ltd (NYSE:FSL) plans to enhance passenger safety with the integration of its new 77GHz radar technology Into Continental’s short and mid-range automotive radar technology. The two companies believe the latest integration could help automakers meet safety mandates with the incorporation of advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS) radar solutions.
Freescale Semiconductor Ltd (NYSE:FSL)’s latest chipsets integrate a radar system that can provide coverage around a vehicle on applications such as emergency braking and blind spot detection. The system can also be used to assist drivers remain on particular lines while driving and also assist in pedestrian detection. Safety standards have also been enhanced as the new systems moves to offer scalability of processing power as well as channel count.
The new features should complement Continentals ARS 400 Long Range Radar Sensor that already incorporates Freescale Semiconductor Ltd (NYSE:FSL)’s MR2001 77GHZ multichannel radar transceiver. Continental Vice President, Thomas Brohm, believes the growth in demand for next generation radar platform calls for integration of more advanced safety features. Something that Freescale looks set to offer with its 77GHz radar technology.
Growing Product Portfolio
The executive expects the ongoing partnership with Freescale Semiconductor Ltd (NYSE:FSL) to be adequate in meeting the increasingly stringent safety protocols being championed by the European New Car Assessment Program. Freescale renowned reputation on automotive radar applications has seen it ship more than one million radar integrated circuits into the market. The company affirms that the new system has been enhanced to address ISO standards.
Freescale Semiconductor Ltd (NYSE:FSL) product portfolio has been growing, having recently unveiled two new broadband RF power amplifiers that can be operated at 3.6 or 7.5V. The design of the two should be of benefit to OEM’S looking to take advantage of transistors in enhancing battery life. The two can also be used on machine-to-machine applications as well as supervisory control and data acquisition systems SCADA.
