60GHz 3D Detection model SC1220AT2



SC1220AT2 is a low power CMOS 60GHz radar sensor device and available for 3D motion sensing.


  • ●3Suited for 3D motion sensing

    • 2 Tx and 2 x 2 Rx antennas detect azimuth / elevation angle, velocity and distance
    • Wide bandwidth (6.8GHz max.) and high-accuracy linear chirp FMCW radar
    • Sensing area example: up to 0.5m(*1) with <1cm(*2) resolution
      (in case of palm gesture)
  • ●Highly integrated device enabling easy hardware design

    • Integrating antennas, radio, ADC, FIFO and SPI interface
    • Enable to use reasonable PCB, less BOM and easy assembly
    • Small package (7.0mm x 7.0mm, LGA package)
  • ●Low power consumption

    • 4-Level operation states (Shutdown, Deep Sleep, Light Sleep, Sensing)
    • Intelligent power control sequencer managing flexible duty cycle operation
    • 2.5mW average power consumption at palm gesture sensing(*3)
    • *1:Depending on sensor configuration and environmental conditions
      *2:To be changed according to further study
      *3:In case of conditions that Socionext assumed
