OSLO, Norway, April 29, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- The 2011 Frost & Sullivan Europe New Product Innovation Award in Radar Sensors is presented to Novelda AS (Novelda) for its state-of-the-art, high precision Novelda Impulse Radar transceiver - NVA6000.
"The Novelda NVA6000 Impulse Radar transceiver is a cutting-edge radar transceiver that incorporates extremely high frame rate and accuracy, in addition to unique penetration capabilities," remarks Frost & Sullivan Research Analyst V. Sankaranarayanan. "Integrated on a single chip, this radar transceiver transmits pulses of high bandwidth."
Based on the Continuous Time Binary Valued (CTBV) design platform, this CMOS impulse radar transceiver successfully eliminates bottlenecks prevalent in conventional digital design-based processors. Unlike traditional processors, the NVA6000 Novelda Impulse Radar sensor does not involve the use of synchronous clock-based digital designs. This enables significantly lower power consumption, while accelerating the processing speed.
"The clock-less CTBV design saves the entire energy that is otherwise used for clock driving or distribution," explains Sankaranarayanan. "In comparison, synchronous clock-based traditional digital technology consumes almost 50 per cent of the total power, as noted in the case of several conventional high-end processors."
In comparison to traditional technology, the Novelda NVA6000 Impulse Radar transceiver offers several improvements and value added features. It effectively uses even extremely short microwave pulses, which makes it ideal for high-resolution ranging.
Its exceptionally short pulse time enables very high accuracy distance tracking and even detection of static objects. Its high sensitivity enables it to detect very weak signals, even amidst considerable noise.
"In addition, as it is integrated on a single chip, the Novelda Impulse Radar transceiver can be seamlessly integrated into small mobile
