Welcome to the SUCCESS-project

SUCCESS was supported by the European Commission through the Seventh Framework Programme for “Design of Semiconductor Components and Electronic Based Miniaturised Systems”. From December 2009 to May 2013, nine project partners worked towards a miniaturized millimeter-wave radar sensor. SUCCESS targeted to develop a technology platform and best-practice design methods to enable the breakthrough of silicon mm-Wave SoCs for high-volume applications. The project was driven by the vision of high-resolution millimeter wave sensors for distance, speed and angle measurement as miniaturized, highly integrated systems.

Within the SUCCESS project, the research teams achieved a milestone towards low-cost, miniature radar sensors. Several prototypes of fully integrated radar sensors were designed, fabricated, and successfully used for demo purposes. Details can be found on this website and in the referenced publications.

 

122 GHz Radar IC with separate transmit and receive antennas,

packaged using standard wire-bonding in a 8 mm QFN package.

 

122 GHz mixed signal Radar IC with separate transmit and receive antennas,

packaged using flip-chip bonding in a 8 mm LTCC package.

Digital circuits and analog RF parts are both included on the same chip.

 

145 GHz Radar IC with a single antenna for transmitting and receiving,

packaged using standard wire-bonding in a 8 mm QFN package.

The Radar IC has several additional elements for built-in-self-tests.

 

This project has received funding from the European Union’s Seventh Programme for research, technological development and demonstration under grant agreement No 248120.
