    Key benefits Validate the automotive radar at microwave and mmWave frequency bands with

    various simulation scenarios easily Jump-start with practical workspace examples such as linear FMCW multi-target

    detection, automotive radar 3D scan, and walking pedestrian scenarios with micro Doppler effect detection

    Generate FMCW waveforms and scenarios using test and measurement equipment, directly from simulations

    Interoperate with Keysight 89600 VSA software to assure consistency throughout the design process


    The Keysight EEsof EDA SystemVue W1908 Automotive Radar Library has comprehensive tools of frequency modulated continuous-wave (FMCW) radar waveform generation, signal modulation, antenna modeling, channel simulation and signal processing. Users can simply connect different models to establish the unique automotive radar simulation scenarios. Meanwhile, the reference designs, such as multi-targets range and speed measurement and 3D scanning radar using antenna array, could offer users much easier starting points to implement their own design ideas into early simulations and prototyping.

    Bring your design ideas into real-world automotive radar scenariosThe Automotive Radar Library is used with the Keysight EDA SystemVue electronic system level simulation platform to integrate critical, safety-conscious and complicated scenarios into reliable, leading-edge design of automotive radar. It provides solution under cost- and time-constraint projects to design and develop algorithm such as direction of angle (DOA) and phase comparison.

    Multi-scatter target parameterized simulation models are available in the Automotive Radar Library to coordinate file import to realize and visualize the micro-Doppler effects on the target. This library can import antenna pattern files for ground clutter simulation as well.

    To accelerate the product development cycle from simulation to pilot and prototyping, the connectivity to test and measurement instruments with SystemVue platform enables upload and download the data files by adding input and/or output in the schematic workspace.

    What can you do with the Automotive Radar Library? Signal generation of linear FMCW, MFSK and Fast Chirp Multiple target detection simulation Antenna 3D scan simulation Passenger micro-Doppler simulation Radar scene simulations; ground clutter, pedestrian, and multi-scatter target Phased array simulation with EMPro, HFSS and CST antenna file importing Phase compare and DOA estimate under fewer channels Instrument connection, measure data upload and download

    Who uses the W1908 Automotive Radar Library?

    Automotive radar baseband algorithm developers who want to verify unique radar waveform design, DOA degree calculation, micro-Doppler effect detection, and more.

    Automotive radar system architects who want to evaluate the effect of transmit and receive antenna channel number, weather, clutter, etc.

    Simulation and Application Examples (Continued)

    Example: Automotive radar 3D scanAutomotive radar needs target elevation angle information not only in azimuth angle but in range and velocity. Leveraging 2D scan system, additional elevation region scan is needed with scan array in M element horizontal receive array and N element vertical transmit array. M receive and N transmit channel (M+N) is equal to MN planer array, so the spaces can be divided into azimuth, elevation, and angle grids to realize and visualize 3D scan. Making transit array does the elevation scanning and receive array does the azimuth scanning, designers can obtain the various simulation results in numeric, sliced 2D and 3D space distribution in SystemVue.

    Figure 5. Creating 3D scan scenarios with platform and target position, velocity, target RCS (radar cross section) and more parameters, designers can visualize the results in various traces and distribution plots.

    Example: Linear FMCW multi-target detectionUsing single tone of linear FMCW signal with up-chirp and down-chirp with echo and beat frequency of every targets, users can simulate the multi target detection and show them in range-velocity diagram.

    Figure 4. This example shows three targets detected and shown in range-velocity diagram.

    Example: Micro-Doppler effect for pedestrian target modelThe automotive radar can detect moving objects including vehicle and pedestrian, or some static objects. When the vehicle target has unique Doppler value because of the vehicle each sub part is relatively static, pedestrian target has more sub parts like arm and leg with different instantaneous velocity. The arms and legs move periodically in walking; the Doppler spectrum is changing periodically in time. Automotive radar can use the Micro-Doppler spectrum distribution to distinguish the targets from pedestrian or vehicle easily.

    Figure 6. An example of pedestrian target model not only with pre-defined pedestrian parameters in velocity and height, there are sub-part relative moving models to be plotted in Micro-Doppler spectrum, which stands for head, neck, arm, torso, and leg.
