K-MC3 Radar Transceiver

Key Features:
  • 24GHz K-band
  • 25°x7° Pattern
  • Electrically compatible to K-MC2
  • Extremely compact
  • FM Input
  • I/Q Mixer
  • IF-Preamp

K-MC3 is a 108 patch doppler module with an asymmetrical narrow beam for long distance sensors. It is ideally suited for traffic supervision.

This module includes two 55dB low noise preamplifiers for both I and Q channels. The need for external analogue electronics will be significantly reduced by this feature. An additional buffered Mixer DC output is provided. This greatly improves flexibility in FMCW and FSK ranging applications.
The unique "RSW" Rapid Sleep Wakeup function with <10us wakeup time makes this module ideal for battery operated equipment. Typical duty cycle in RSW mode may be < 1% with full movement detection capability by sampling the IF signals.
An extremely slim and compact construction with only 6mm depth gives you maximum flexibility in your equipment design.

A Growing Family

K-MC3 is the answer to the growing demand for RFbeam narrow beam transceivers:
K-MC1: 25° x 12°
K-MC3: 25° x 7°
K-LC6: 80° x 12°
All these modules are equipped with an FM-Input (>150 MHz sweep). K-MC sereis provides RSW (Rapid Sleep Wakeup) energy saving mode.
