IMST offers three 24 GHz FMCW SENTIRETM Radar modules. The first one sR-1200e comes with integrated patch antennas while the second module sR-1030e is equipped with three coaxial connectors for external antennas. There are two receive channels/antennas with I/Q information and one transmit channel/antenna. The third module sR-14MPc has 1 transmit and 4 receive channels and applies the Monopulse method. All modules can operate in Doppler or FMCW mode for measuring of distances, angles and velocity of targets. The little "e" at the end of the product name stands for Ethernet with Power-over-Ethernet (PoE) while "c" stands for CAN-bus.
All three 24 GHz FMCW SENTIRETM Radar modules are available as developer kits DK-sR-1200e, DK-sR-1030e and DK-sR-14MPc. Each kit comprises a radar module, PC software and Android App with graphical user interface and Ethernet/CAN-bus interface for user-friendly startup, testing and application specific integration of the radar unit. The software SenTool allows parameter settings and visualization of measured radar data. Typical parameters are detection range, resolution, frequency bandwidth, output power, radar signal shape and duration.
IMST does also offer a 60 GHz FMCW SENTIRETM Radar module. sR60-12RLi has an integrated 60 GHz radar chip with up to 7 GHz bandwidth. The chip consists of 1 transmitter and 2 receivers whereas the patch-antennas are part of the chip. A round dielectric lens is applied to focus the radar beam. The radome is part of the housing. The 60 GHz radar module is also available as developer kit DK-sR60-12RLi and has an industrial "i" interface (e.g. SPI, internal USB, SSI, Current Loop, GPIOs). The software SenTool is also available for the developer kit.
Several accessories are available for the radar products. Especially two different types of patch antennas (linear or circular polarized).
The following table gives a overview of available radar modules at 24 GHz, 60 GHz and 77/79 GHz.
