Infineon offers a wide variety of devices for scalable ultra-wideband, ultra-low power architecture for ICMS subsystems.
Cabin Monitoring Systems (ICMS) redefine the concept of passenger safety in cars. Various applications such as detection of children left behind, driver welfare or occupancy detection increase road safety and vehicle protection. Radar in particular is a promising technology to meet these applications because of its ability to detect micro-movements and vital signs.
With XENSIV BGT60ATR24C AEC-Q100 radar sensors, AURIX microcontrollers and OPTIREG PMICs, Infineon Technologies AG offers a wide variety of products for an ultra-wideband, ultra-low power and cost-performance scalable architecture for ICMS subsystems. The devices support the use of new signal processing techniques allowing robustness and a good compromise between the computation costs, the degree of information as well as the power consumption of the system.
The XENSIV BGT60ATR24C radar sensor is a cognitive sensing solution with multiple transmit / receive for virtual network configurations, a highly agile modulation generation mechanism, automatic power mode configurability as well as simplified interfaces between RF and the side treatment. In addition, the AURIX TC3xx family of microcontrollers combines performance with a powerful security architecture. The family incorporates a fast radar signal processing unit and enhanced security with the second generation of the Hardware Security Module (HSM). This includes asymmetric crypto accelerators and full support for EVITA.

This sensor-MCU combination makes Infineon’s 60 GHz automotive portfolio ideal for ICMS applications. In addition, partnerships with bitsensing, a South Korean imaging radar technology start-up, and Caaresys, an Israel-based start-up, allow customers to accelerate their development cycle.
“Bitsensing’s MOD620, a 60 GHz system solution enabled by advanced signal processing techniques using Infineon’s chipset solution, offers a new level of safety confidence for the automotive industry that demands excellence, reliability and unmatched intelligence, ”said Dr. Jae-Eun Lee, CEO of Bit Detection.
“Caaresys CabinCare and BabyCare radar system solutions aim to make life in cars safer. By combining our expertise in algorithms and radar signal processing with Infineon’s high performance XENSIV 24 GHz and 60 GHz radar sensors and AURIX microcontrollers, we plan to do aesthetic and non-contact vital signs monitoring in the automotive a reality, ”said Ilya Sloushch, CEO of Caaresys.
