ON Semiconductor Expands Automotive Sensing Portfolio with Radar Technology

ON Semiconductor acquires mmWave technology for automotive radar from IBM

PHOENIX — (BUSINESS WIRE) — March 6, 2017 — ON Semiconductor Corporation (Nasdaq: ON), driving energy efficient innovations, today announced that it is acquiring and licensing mmWave technology for automotive radar applications developed by IBM’s Haifa research team. The acquisition positions ON Semiconductor to extend its leadership in automotive image sensors into the broader automotive sensing market. Radar is highly complementary to sensing cameras as it excels at measuring distance and object velocity even in poor visibility necessary for next-generation autonomous driving. The combination of these technologies also enables ON Semiconductor uniquely to address the growing trend of sensor fusion where multiple sensing technologies are used to improve accuracy and automotive safety.

“The team and its technologies accelerates ON Semiconductor’s strategy to grow our automotive sensing business even faster than the robust growth from increasing camera attach rates,” said Taner Ozcelik, senior vice president and general manager Image Sensor Group. “We look forward to delivering a wider range of sensing products and technology to meet our customers’ needs for next-generation ADAS and fully autonomous driving solutions.”

The acquisition creates a new Israel design center for ON Semiconductor that reports directly into the automotive solutions division within the Image Sensor Group. The new design center is located in Haifa, Israel. It includes staff, equipment, research facilities and intellectual property. The team’s Eband designs meet the stringent European ETSI standard and include high output power for a Fixed Beam Silicon based chipset.
