Sivers IMA Launches Radar Development Kit
April 30, 2015
IMA, a leading manufacturer of millimeter wave products, today announced its launch of a
Radar Development Kit (RDK)
an easy-to-use platform for those who need to measure distance or speed of an object.
“At Sivers IMA we have a long experience of developing complete Radar sensor solutions and a portfolio of FMCW
Radar sensor front-ends. For the RDK that we are now launching, we have taken some of our know-how and developed
and packaged hardware and software to simplify for customers that are interested in including radar technology in
their products. We believe this could provide them with a faster time to market which will increase the value of
their offering”, says Robert Ekström, CEO of Sivers IMA.
The RDK from Sivers IMA is built to quickly be up and running out-of-the-box, enabling the customer to start
elaborating and optimizing the right parameters of the targeted object within a detection zone. Once the right parameters
are set and an application is tailored to the customer needs, Sivers IMA will be capable of manufacturing the final
customer solution in volume to support roll-out of the end-user application. Current customer applications include
level measurement in silos and tanks, anti-collision in industrial automation and safety in railroad applications.
The use of radar is increasing every year. Many industries have already recognized the benefits with radar when
measuring an object’s speed or distance between two points. With its remote sensing, the radar acquires information
about an object without direct contact. Radar technology is especially useful in harsh conditions such as dusty, smoky or
foggy environments where other technologies struggle.
