  • Patent number: 11137489
    Abstract: A radar system includes a first chip having a first radio frequency (RF) contact; a second chip having a second RF contact; a first RF oscillator integrated in the first chip and has an output coupled to the first RF contact; a second RF oscillator integrated in the second chip; a transmission line connecting the first RF contact to the second RF contact; a demodulator that is arranged in the second chip and has a first RF input; wherein the first RF oscillator is configured to generate a first RF oscillator signal that is transmitted to the first RF input of the demodulator via the first RF contact, the transmission line, and the second RF contact, and wherein a controller is configured to determine a first propagation delay of the first RF oscillator signal arriving at the second chip on a basis of information obtained from the demodulator.

  • Publication number: 20210156959
    Abstract: A method is proposed for determining at least one calibration parameter for a radar system having a first radar transceiver and a second radar transceiver. The method includes performing a first calibration measurement and a second calibration measurement. The first calibration measurement and the second calibration measurement both include generating a first frequency-modulated oscillation signal and a second frequency-modulated oscillation signal, and combining the first oscillation signal received via the second terminal with the second oscillation signal, in order to generate a first difference signal for the first calibration measurement and a second difference signal for the second calibration measurement, both having a frequency difference between the first oscillation signal and the second oscillation signal.

  • Publication number: 20200217923
    Abstract: The present disclosure relates to a transmission apparatus, including at least one first RF signal connection for an RF signal having a first phase, a ring coupler having a plurality of antenna connections for coupling a plurality of antennas in the first RF signal connection, wherein the ring coupler is configured to cause, at each of different antenna connections of the ring coupler, a constructive superposition of components of the RF signal that propagate from the first RF signal connection to the respective antenna connections in different directions in the ring coupler, wherein RF signals having different phases are obtained at the different antenna connections.

  • Patent number: 7391270
    Abstract: A phase locked loop is disclosed and includes a frequency divider circuit with a settable division ratio in a feedback path. The division ratio is produced using a control circuit which, besides an input for supplying the integer and fractional components for the frequency division ratio which is to be set, includes an input for supplying a phase correction signal. To produce the phase correction signal, the phase locked loop further includes a phase correction apparatus. The phase correction signal preferably contains a signal component with an exponential profile, and is supplied to the control circuit for producing a frequency division ratio for the frequency divider circuit such that it compensates for a phase drift in the output signal from the voltage controlled oscillator in the phase locked loop.
