Vayyar Imaging announced the launch of its new mmWave Evaluation Kit (EVK), Walabot-60Ghz. Walabot-60Ghz provides users with the groundbreaking capabilities of Vayyar’s high-resolution 3D imaging chip, alongside an SDK/API, facilitating rapid development, integration and scaling of products. The kit includes a highly advanced chip with a 40 Transceivers array (40 Tx/Rx), complete with FOV embedded antennas and wide-band 60 GHz imaging radar.
The Walabot-60Ghz EVK delivers an exceptionally wide field of view along with high-resolution imaging. This gives users unprecedented capabilities, enabling the development of advanced applications for smart home, robotics, retail, medical and many other industries. Potential uses include obstacle avoidance, perimeter protection, ultrasonic replacement, automatic door openers, people tracking, posture detection, short range imaging and even point cloud technologies.
The Walabot-60Ghz system is comprised of the following components:
- The Walabot-60Ghz RF Sensor Unit
- The EVK Engine – Hosts software that performs signal processing functions
- Web GUI – User interface client software that communicates with the EVK Engine via a TCP/IP connection
- API Client – Optional customer-developed software that communicates with the EVK Engine via a TCP/IP connection
“Vayyar’s new evaluation kit, the Walabot-60Ghz, brings our groundbreaking chip technology into a format that gives engineers and software developers unprecedented access to our 3D radio wave-based imaging sensor technology,” said Ofer Familier, Director of Business Development at Vayyar. “In doing so, it gives them sophisticated capabilities, empowering end users to unleash their creativity in developing new applications that can be incorporated into existing systems or used to create new products.”
Leveraging the technological advancements of the Walabot-60Ghz EVK, individuals and organizations alike – from research and innovation centers to engineers and enthusiasts – can create disruptive applications based on Vayyar’s advanced System on a Chip (SoC) for mmWave 3D imaging technology.
