Metawave delivers Connectivity & Mobility technology platforms to power smart applications today and tomorrow. 

Metawave is developing advanced automotive and aerial imaging radar technology that enables unmatched range and point-cloud resolution in all weather conditions, fulfilling the needs of today’s missing ADAS sensor. The core technology is based on combining the best of analog front-end beamforming and steering Antenna in Package (AiP) modules, hybrid virtual MIMO arrays architectures, and simplified back-end digital signal processing enabling faster frame rate and 5D radar capabilities (range, velocity, angular accuracy or resolution in the horizontal and vertical directions and real-time object classification). These flexible and scalable building-blocks architectures meet OEM next generation performance metrics within target price and size factors. With 300+ filed patents and 30 issued/allowed to date, Metawave has secured their place as the first to demonstrate realizable analog beamforming and steering radar solutions for these markets, and first to develop the highly integrated multi-channel front-end beamforming AiP modules that are agnostic to radar Tier 2 chipset selections. Metawave’s core technology is also being developed for 5G telecommunications applications with focus on enhanced speed, bandwidth and coverage through low cost, infrastructure light deployments. The beamforming  solutions for 5G communications include high-performance passive reflectors and active, analog repeaters.
