dSPACE's New Target Simulator for 4-D Radar Sensors Sets New Standards
October 13, 2020
The new DARTS 9040-G unit, available from dSPACE, was built to test radar sensor signals for autonomous driving needs.
dSPACE is setting new standards for testing of 4-D radar sensors with a new target simulator. According to the company, the DARTS 9040-G is the first simulator worldwide to process multiple radar signals simultaneously with a bandwidth of up to 5 GHz. It allows for the development of radar sensors for driver assistance systems and autonomous driving.
The resolution and signal quality of the dSPACE Automotive Radar Test System (DARTS) 9040-G supports demanding sensor tests from development to production - end-to-end from chip design to sensor development to end-of-line testing.
The DARTS 9040-G target simulator simultaneously covers the high frequency range of 76 to 81 GHz and has compact HF front ends, making it ideal to reposition for new test setups.
Dr. Andreas Himmler, Senior Product Manager for automotive radar systems at dSPACE states, "We have worked with various pilot users to verify that the DARTS 9040-G reconciles two extremes: the signal purity of a passive delay line and the flexibility and range of functionality of an electronic radar target simulator."
The dSPACE Automotive Radar Test System (DARTS) covers the value chain, from sensor testing by chip manufacturers to hardware-in-the-loop validation and end-of-line testing by automobile manufacturers.
Per the company, the DARTS 9040-G is the first simulator worldwide to process multiple radar signals simultaneously with a bandwidth of up to 5 GHz.
