Socionext Launches Next-Gen Radar Sensors for IoT, Smart Home and other Applications

DVNew Delhi, October 10, 2019: Socionext Inc., a leading provider of advanced SoC solutions for a wide range of applications unveils a new series of radio-wave ranging sensors for smart home and other IoT devices. The SC1230 Series, which can detect location and movement of persons with high sensitivity, low power consumption and low cost, is available now in samples, with volume production scheduled for the first quarter of 2020.

FDGThe digital transformation (DX), which seamlessly integrates the physical and digital worlds is becoming essential to realize a super-smart society, dubbed “Society 5.0”, the newly-formed Japanese technological initiative that shifts economic and social focus, blurring the frontier between cyberspace and the physical space. The major elements for digital transformation involve highly-sensitive, compact, low-cost and low power sensing technology which can be implemented to various IoT devices.

The new SC1230 Series is a new line-up of radar sensor products and detects the location and movement of persons with high sensitivity without recording images or sounds. They are highly useful in developing new services and functions based on information about “human behavior”, while also addressing privacy concerns.

IConventional radar sensors required advanced knowledge for handling, and it was also difficult to install them in home-use appliances because of the power consumption and the physical dimensions. The company’s expertise in signal processing and circuit design technologies allows the SC1230 Series to achieve ultra-low power consumption, ultra-compact size, and high-cost performance simultaneously. Incorporating basic signal processing functions into the sensor device reduces the number of external components, and makes it easier to use without requiring specialized knowledge in signal processing. With built-in antenna in a compact package of 9mm x 9mm and power consumption at 0.5 mW, they can be installed anywhere using battery power. The lineup includes two products, the SC1232AR3 which measures the presence and the distance of an object, and the SC1233AR3 which can also detect the direction. Users can choose the right product depending on their applications.

Socionext will continue to explore the potential of new sensing technologies by developing radar sensor products and proposing new applications and solutions. The company aims at expanding the usage of the products not only for home appliances but also for mobile devices and industrial equipment.
Overview:

SC 1230 Series :

All-in-one package radar sensor with built-in antenna, radio circuit, A/D converter and ranging calculation circuit. Comes with built-in motion detection function that detects the distance to an object and flags when movement is detected. After setting up the system from host MCU via I2C/SPI, it can be used simply by reading the detection result. It operates at an average power consumption of approximately 0.5mW for detection of persons operating at 0.1% duty cycle in motion detection mode.

SC1232AR3: The Digital Beam Shaper feature enables to select a Field of View of either 120 or 95 degrees. The detection range is 8 m in the front direction.SC1233AR3: The dual receiving antenna system allows 2D angle detection by using an external MCU. FOV is 120 degrees and the detection range is 8m in the front direction. For angle detection, it outputs pre-processed data by the built-in circuit, so angle information can be obtained with a simple calculation.FOV is half-value angle. FOV and detection range with the actual usage varies depending on the surrounding environment.

SC1232AR3/SC1233AR3
Operating Frequency 24.06 – 24.24GHz
Package 9mm x 9mm x 1.18mm BGA, 0.8mm pitch, 64 pin
Supply Voltage 1.5V – 1.8V (Core) / 1.8 – 3.3V (I/O)

Pricing and Availability:

TE Connectivity Announced Ultra Small Spring Fingers

TE Connectivity (TE)’snew ultra small spring fingers have one of the smallest footprints in the market to save valuable PCB space, allowing for use in a broad range of applications with space constraints across various industries.TE’s ultra small spring fingerscan save valuable PCB space with one of the smallest footprints in the market. Closed-loop contact design ensures reliable connection to the PCB, better normal force and higher current capacity (1.5A). Robust side wall minimizes over- compression. Special anti-lifting design can improve assembly e ciency by locking the tip of the contact within the sidewall of the spring  nger, which helps prevent the contact from getting caught on an operator’s glove during assembly. Pick-and-place area supports auto-assembly processes. It also offered in different heights and styles.As an authorized distributor for TE Connectivity, Heilind Asia provides TE’s products and also value added services. Heilind Asia supports both original equipment …

Battery Stack Monitor Maximizes Performance of Li-Ion Batteries in Hybrid and Electric Vehicles

Cosimo CarrieroField Applications Engineer, Analog Devices, Inc.AbstractLithium-ion (Li-Ion) batteries are a popular way to store energy in electric and hybrid vehicles. These batteries offer the highest energy density of any current battery technology, but to maximize performance, a battery monitoring system (BMS) is mandatory. A state-of-the-art BMS not only allows you to extract the highest quantity of charge from your battery pack, but also lets you manage the charge and discharge cycles in a safer way, which results in an extended life. Analog Devices provides a full portfolio of BMS devices with focus on accuracy and robust operation.Accurately measuring a battery’s state of charge (SOC) increases battery run time or decreases weight. A precise and stable device does not require factory calibration after PCB assembly. Stability over time improves safety and avoids warranty problems. A self-diagnostics feature helps reach the right automotive safety integrity level (ASIL). A batt…
