NVA6100 is a fully integrated nanoscale impulse radar transceiver, designed for low-power high-performance applications. Based on Novelda’s Continuous Time Binary Value-architecture, NVA6100 provides a low-cost highly integrated, highly robust solution for a wide range of remote sensing applications.
NVA6100 employs 32-bit digital integration and 512 parallel samplers for maximum frame depth and sensitivity, as well as a fully programmable frame offset for an extensive detection range.
Adjustable dynamic range is provided through the programmable input amplifier, while the high-speed, high-resolution sampler provides free space sampling resolution of up to 4 mm, while sub-mm resolution is attainable in interleaved sampling mode.
In a typical application setting, the NVA6100 yields unprecedented sensor performance with a minimum of external components.
