UWB Radar SoC Enhances Occupancy And Respiration Sensors

The X4M300 presence sensor and X4M200 respiration sensor for non-contact respiration and vital-sign monitoring enjoy improvements via integration of the company’s ultra-wideband impulse radar system-on-chip (SoC) design. Advancements include smaller-size, lower-power, and lower-cost implementation that allows the modules to be deployed without the aid of an antenna-design or radar expert. The X4 SoC operates at unlicensed center frequencies of 7.29 GHz or 8.748 GHz, has a configurable frame size, and can operate 10x faster than previous versions. This enables a range of up to 10m for presence detection, for a target with a 0.1-m2 cross-section, while offering a respiration monitoring zone of 0.4m to 5m for detecting breathing patterns or frequency when the target is otherwise still. Modules are available for evaluation and volume production now. Pricing is 1000 piece quantities is $80 each/1,000 for the X4M300 Presence Sensor and $80 each/1,000 for the X4M200 Respiration Sensor.
