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.
AngelTech Live III: Join us on 12 April 2021!
AngelTech Live III will be broadcast on 12 April 2021, 10am BST, rebroadcast on 14 April (10am CTT) and 16 April (10am PST)
and will feature online
versions of the market-leading physical events: CS International
and PIC International
PLUS a brand new Silicon Semiconductor International
Thanks to the great diversity of the semiconductor industry, we are always chasing new markets and developing a range of exciting technologies.
2021 is no different. Over the last few months interest in deep-UV LEDs has rocketed, due to its capability to disinfect and sanitise areas and combat Covid-19. We shall consider a roadmap for this device, along with technologies for boosting its output.
We shall also look at microLEDs, a display with many wonderful attributes, identifying processes for handling the mass transfer of tiny emitters that hold the key to commercialisation of this technology.
We shall also discuss electrification of transportation, underpinned by wide bandgap power electronics and supported by blue lasers that are ideal for processing copper.
Additional areas we will cover include the development of GaN ICs, to improve the reach of power electronics; the great strides that have been made with gallium oxide; and a look at new materials, such as cubic GaN and AlScN.
Having attracted 1500 delegates over the last 2 online summits, the 3rd event promises to be even bigger and better – with 3 interactive sessions over 1 day and will once again prove to be a key event across the semiconductor and photonic integrated circuits calendar.
So make sure you sign up today and discover the latest cutting edge developments across the compound semiconductor and integrated photonics value chain.
