Semiconductor foundry GLOBALFOUNDRIES’ 22FDX process for its patented imaging radar has been selected by 4D imaging provider Arbe Robotics for automated system capabilities and the enabling of safer driving experiences in autonomous vehicles.

“The trend of autonomous driving is progressing rapidly and with it is the need for high-resolution radar,” said Mark Granger, vice president of automotive at GLOBALFOUNDRIES (GF). “The future will rely on a mix of real-time maps, advanced navigation software, and live data from vehicle sensors. That’s why GF is pleased Arbe Robotics has chosen our 22FDX platform.”

Arbe Robotics’ radar shows real-time 1° resolution and provides the required enhancements for sensors and autonomous driving technologies. Arbe’s goal is to build a sensing system with high resolution and zero false alarms, so vehicles will be able to make decisions relying exclusively on the data provided by the radar. Leveraging GF’s 22FDX FD-SOI technology, the new chipset is increasing the amount of transmitting and receiving channels on a chip and allowing for better integration to Arbe’s proprietary processor. The technology can detect pedestrians and obstacles at a range of 300 m in all weather and lighting conditions. The processor creates a full 3D shape of the objects and their velocity and classifies targets using their radar signature.

“Arbe Robotics’ imaging radar is optimized for providing a real-time 4D picture of the environment at ultrahigh resolution,” said Kobi Marenko, CEO of Arbe Robotics. “The collaboration with GF is a significant step toward achieving the high-performance level required for autonomous driving safety."

GLOBALFOUNDRIES provides design, development, and fabrication as a full-service semiconductor foundry. Arbe Robotics provides high-resolution radar for autonomous vehicles.
