The MOD620 Combines bitsensing’s Groundbreaking Radar Technology with Infineon’s Industry Leading Chipsets
SEOUL, KOREA - Media OutReach - 16 February 2021 - Today, bitsensing, a South Korean imaging radar
technology startup, announces a partnership
with world leader in semiconductor solutions Infineon Technologies to revolutionize the in-cabin experience with the
launch of the 60GHz MOD620 radar. The MOD620 was designed by bitsensing and
enabled by Infineon to provide a powerful safety monitoring solution that
drivers can trust.
According to the Heatstroke Deaths of
Children in Vehicles, Jan Null, San Jose State University, since the 1990s, 54%
of children dying in hot cars
was because they were forgotten by their caregivers. The MOD620 prevents this
type of casualty by efficiently detecting the presence and vital signs of
in-cabin occupants and sending the driver alerts if a child is left unattended
inside a car. Designed by bitsensing engineers and enabled by Infineon, the
MOD620 comprehensive monitoring solution matches the specific in-cabin
requirements for any vehicle offering continuous and limitless detection, regardless
of clothes or blankets.
"Our partnership with Infineon
demonstrates the significant progress we are making towards building safer
smart cities and elevating connected living by designing radar solutions for
all. This is an important moment in our company's history as we have dedicated
the last three years to strategically engineering advanced radar technology that
can utilize existing top tier chipsets to address this need in the market,"
said Dr. Jae-Eun Lee, CEO of bitsensing. "bitsensing is the first and only Korean
startup that can deliver all aspects of auto grade radar solutions, in-house.
Our world-class engineers designed the MOD620 with the Infineon Chipset to
offer a new level of confidence in safety for an industry that demands
excellence, reliability, and unmatched intelligence."
To build the premier in-cabin sensing
radar, bitsensing rearranged the hardware configuration and redesigned the
antenna. Powerful computing is achieved through the MCU making it possible for
radar data to be signal-processed and calculated. The MMIC transmits and
receives signals through electro-magnetic waves for detection while the antenna
is integrated with RF energy from the radar transmission line into the
propagation medium and vice versa. These components work together seamlessly
for an advanced caliber of radar performance.
"The engineers of bitsensing have years
of experience in optimizing chipsets. Working with Infineon's state of the
art radar offering, this allowed them to strategically and systematically
arrange components for the MOD620's best-in-class radar performance," says Mr.
How Cheen Ng, Director, Partnership Management & Digital Marketing
Communication, Infineon Asia Pacific. "Leading in innovation and committing to
meaningful partnerships to develop cutting-edge technologies is at the core of
what we do at Infineon. This powerful partnership produced a solution that
truly transcends safety and creates a better quality of life for all."
Versatile Single Radar Solution Featuring
The MOD620 reliably detects in-car
passenger presence and location. It can also detect in real-time the presence
of a child left in a car, even when the car is shut down and locked as well as
monitor the vital signs of occupants and send an alert if there are any
abnormalities. bitsensing's in-house specialists partnered with various labs
from top universities to obtain the most accurate data to produce this radar
that can accurately detect. The MOD620 offers a safe monitoring solution that
is necessary for the optimal autonomous driving experience.
bitsensing's MOD620 captures all
rear-seat space maintaining the top quality for in-cabin solutions. The
120-degree field of view combined with the customizable detection range up to
2.5m provides an increased level of performance. Privacy concerns are also
eliminated with the MOD620 as it does not rely on cameras for presence
Customizable Antenna Design
The rearrangeable antenna in the MOD620
allows for customization in channel length compensation, Field of View, and
matching circuits for transmitters and receivers. bitsensing's unique expertise
in customizable antenna design allows for a quick and efficient process in
matching specific in-cabin requirements for any vehicle. The MOD620 is a
customizable cost-efficient radar that works in high-speed cars, day or night,
with no interference to seatbelts.
