Infineon and Google to develop SiGe gesture sensor

First examples demonstrated at Google Developers Conference

Infineon Technologies is working with Google's Advanced Technology and Projects group (ATAP) to develop a sensor based around Infineon's SiGe 60GHz transceiver technology, integrating RF transceiver, antenna and control electronics in a single package.

First implementations of the radar-based sensor, which provide gesture recognition and presence detection, were demonstrated by Google ATAP at its recent Google I/O Developers Conference in San Francisco.

Infineon already provides solutions for wireless communications of the future to other divisions at Google. This new sensor will provide Google ATAP and its developer community with a compact and low power implementation suitable for integration and use in future mobile and fixed devices.

"Infineon is a recognised leader in radar-based sensor ICs, providing component and system-level solutions for consumer, automotive safety, industrial and commercial sensing and machine vision applications - markets that are expected to grow significantly in the coming years," said Philipp Schierstaedt, VP and general manager of the Business Line RF & Sensors of Infineon Technologies.
