Abstract

Recent advances in semiconductor fabrication are providing the opportunity to build very small and cost-effective single chip integrated radar systems operating at millimeter-wave frequencies and beyond. These tiny radar systems will enable a wide range of new applications such as automotive radar, safety helmet radar, robot guidance radar, UAV collision avoidance and mapping radar, bicycle safety radar, and many other possibilities. Considerable progress has been made in designing and building such systems; however, many challenges remain related to limitations imposed by radio frequency IC technology such as Complementary Metal Oxide Semiconductors (CMOS) including modest dynamic range and..
