Automotive White Papers, Application Notes, and Case Studies

  1. Automotive Radar Technology, Market And Test Requirements
    12/5/2018

    The automotive industry is continuously being equipped with more radar sensors that support drivers in critical situations. Radar makes it possible to quickly and precisely measure the radial velocity, range, azimuth angle and elevation angle of multiple objects, so it is often used in advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS).

  2. Benefits Of Time-Domain Electromagnetic Simulation For Automotive Radar
    11/6/2018

    The requirements for automotive radar sensors in common ranges - such as 24 GHz and 77 GHz - are becoming more stringent and engineers need to understand how design decisions affect performance.  

  3. Understanding Miniaturized Automotive Coax Terminals
    8/29/2018

    Connectivity has become increasingly more important as the global automotive industry progresses towards safer, greener, and more comfortable driving. Automotive interconnections and the increase volume of transmitted data now require the use of high RF/high-bandwidth connections. TE Connectivity offers the MATE-AX miniaturized coaxial terminal solution to provide the industry 9 GHz of immediate RF performance and capability up to 20 GHz in much smaller, lighter, more affordable layouts.
