Automotive safety systems designed to avoid accidents are becoming increasingly common in today’s vehicles. New cars are often equipped with robust collision avoidance technologies due to regulations mandating their inclusion. These Active Safety technologies are enabled by innovative Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) and use several sensor technologies, including radar, to detect conditions that may lead to a collision. With this, ADAS helps drivers arrive safely at their destination. Rogers is the world’s technology and market leader in innovative material solutions, providing high performance printed circuit board (PCB) laminates for automotive 24 GHz and 77 GHz radar sensor applications enabling active safety.
Radar-based ADAS systems are active safety systems that assist drivers by giving vehicles the virtual ability to sense the static and dynamic objects on the road. High frequency circuit materials from Rogers Corporation are critical to the reliability of radar sensors essential for ADAS. At RF and millimeter wave frequencies such as 24 and 77 GHz, radar sensor designers require thin core PCB laminates with low insertion loss and low dielectric constant. Rogers’ materials have an established reputation for excellent quality and reliability in the electrical and mechanical properties required for radar sensors to achieve the highest performance.
