Semiconductor technology for automotive analog components, MMICs and SOCs

Autonomous Vehicles need to determine the whereabouts of the objects around them. In order to make accurate object avoidance decisions, these vehicles need to understand not only the location of the objects around them, but also what they are. This classification information is critical to establishing the probability of what each object will do next. There are a variety of sensor types in play including LiDAR, Radar, cameras and ultrasonic sensors. Each of these has respective strengths and weaknesses – no one sensor can do everything well. It is subtle nuances in the signals from each sensor that provides the information required for detailed classification. The goal of InventionShare’s Sensors in Motion™ technology portfolio is to offer state-of-the-art analog design solutions targeted at optimizing the sensitivity of automotive sensors.
