Not only can 24GHz RADAR replace PIR sensors, it expands the opportunity for other applications and use cases such as occupancy detection and tracking, intelligent control of street/campus lighting, and traffic monitoring. Infineon's BGT24 family of micro-RADAR ICs help integrate key RADAR blocks to eliminate complex designs and impedance matching between these circuits.
For the first time ever there will now be two end products available on the market in 2017 that can be precisely operated - by hand movements alone: At the "Google I/O", the annual developer conference in Mountain View, California, Google presented a new smartwatch by the device manufacturer LG and a wireless speaker from the high-end speaker brand JBL.
Both contain the revolutionary feature and can be operated despite jumpy jogger hands or the dough-spattered fingers of the hobby chef. At the heart of both is the Infineon chip and the software from Google. Beginning in mid 2017, both companies will co-market the hardware and software as a single solution.
Infineon brings ready-to-use multicopter solutions to a huge, rapidly-growing consumer market. As the first manufacturer, we offer a complete system solution with everything from power electronics to controllers and sensors. Flying is the most critical application in terms of performance, efficiency and control. We cover all these aspects and provide exactly what you need. So you can design a highly efficient multicopter capable of what counts most for consumers: long airtime.
