Small Bit of a CMOS Chip Holds 2-D Through-the-walls Radar Imager

February 5, 2008

Hossein Hashemi and Ta-Shun Chu Two researchers from the University of Southern California Viterbi School of Engineering have created a send/receive chip that functions as an active array, sending out a matrix of 49 simultaneous ultrawideband radar probe beams, and picking up the returned beam reflections. It is fabricated by economical CMOS technology. Full Story
