It is never an easy decision to start from scratch, but that is exactly what we did with the K2 Pico FlexAR family development. We used the knowledge that had been learnt during the development of our X band and K1 series radars. Starting the software and hardware from scratch meant that we were able to build something that would be ultimately flexible and would mean we could overcome all the limitations that had been exposed from our previous developments as well as seen in every other current product on the market.
The K2 Pico is a unique radar device in that it provides the OEM with a platform to build a product on rather than just being used as an “end product” in its own right. The K2 Pico processor itself takes care of all the hard work – the radar signal processing, GPRS connections, Bluetooth, GPS, IO handling etc and provides a simple elegant high level approach for the OEM designer to create their system or application.
