DescriptionA compact, cost-effective and high-performance driving assistance system.
The Mid Range Radar Sensor, with its three Transmitter and four Receiver channels, operates in the 76-77 GHz frequency band that is standard for automotive radar applications. The front version works with an aperture angle of up to +/- 45 degrees and can detect objects up to 160 meters away. With a compact design (using fan-out RF components from Infineon), the system is easy to integrate into a vehicle’s body.
The system integrates two electronic boards including Bosch, Freescale and STMicroelectronics circuits. The RF board is manufactured with an asymmetric structure using Hybrid PTFE/FR4 substrate and is equipped with planar antennas.
Infineon 77GHZ SiGe Monolithic Microwave Integrated Circuits (MMIC) are used as High-Frequency transmitter and receiver. The two RF dies are packaged in the last version of the eWLB, the Fan-Out Wafer Level Package developed and manufactured by Infineon.
Based on a complete teardown analysis of the Bosch MRR Sensor, the report provides the bill-of-material (BOM) and the manufacturing cost of the Radar Sensor.
A complete physical analysis and manufacturing cost estimation of the Infineon MMICs is available in a separate report.
ANALYSIS PERFORMED WITH OUR COSTING TOOLS 3D PACKAGE COSIM+
Defining the cost of an electronic system requires an estimation of all component costs, including PCB, housing and connectors, and a simulation of the cost of the assembly and test process at the board and system level.
The costing modules included in SYScost+ answer all these requirements and help costing engineers get accurate calculations.
SYScost+ is flexible in order to be used in multiple applications.

System Plus Consulting
Across the Enterprise, from marketing to purchasing and R&D, product manufacturing cost is a major factor which has to be measured and then optimized. Since 1993, System Plus Consulting’s mission has been to develop and sell the right tools and services to meet these costing requirements.
System Plus Consulting utilizes an engineering approach to cost. Cost models and technology expertise are combined to provide customers with an accurate and objective estimation of manufacturing costs and selling prices.
Headquartered in Nantes, France, System Plus Consulting is specialized in technology and cost analysis of electronic components and systems. During our 20 years in business, we have built and refined detailed cost models as the primary tools for hundreds of analyses. The highly qualified System Plus cost engineers combine broad and deep skills in semiconductor and electronics technologies with years of experience in cost modeling.
− Custom reverse costing analyses: technology analysis followed by cost evaluation
− Standard reverse costing reports: regular publications on innovative products (available from our catalogue)
− Costing tools: software tools combining models and data to perform cost analysis
System Plus Consulting analyzes any type of electronic devices and systems, with a special focus on semiconductor technologies. Major fields of technology and cost expertise are:
− Integrated Circuits
− Power Devices and Modules
− MEMS & Sensors
− Photonics: LED, Image Sensors
− Packaging including wafer level
− Electronic Boards and Systems
Our analyses are used by Purchasing Departments to measure their suppliers’ cost structure, R&D Departments to confirm technological choices depending on their impact on costs, and Benchmarking/Marketing Departments to monitor the products on the market.
System Plus Consulting is committed to provide a high level of service:
− Delivery of reports and custom analyses with a minimum lead time.
− Results presentation and online Q&A sessions when support is needed.
− Open methodology and full confidentiality in order to maintain a trustful collaboration.
Since 2008, our partnership with YOLE Développement has allowed us to stay at the forefront of technologies and has added a market view to our reports.
