K-MC5_LP Low Power Radar Transceiver

Key Features:
  • Vcc 3.3V .. 5V
  • 24GHz K-band
  • 5°x6.5° Pattern
  • Buffered I/Q out
  • Extra slim


K-MC5_LP is a very narrow beam, low current doppler module for medium to long distance sensors. It is ideally suited for traffic applicatons.

K-MC5_LP needs 10 times less current than standard Doppler sensors and works from 3.3V or 5V power supplies at nearly the same detection sensitivity.
This module includes two 60dB IF pre-amplifiers for both I and Q channels. The need for external analogue electronics will be significantly reduced by this feature.
Please note, that K-MC5_LP does not provide a VCO: FMCW and FSK is not possible.

K-MC4 contains IF preamplifiers for simplified interfacing to signal processing hardware. Large FMCW range and battery saving circuit ("RSW") make this module an exeptional choice for advanced traffic and security applications.
An extremely slim and compact construction with only 6mm depth gives you maximum flexibility in your equipment design.
