Research output: Patent


In accordance with an embodiment, a method of operating a radar system includes activating a transmitter to transmit a radar signal during a first time period, receiving a reflection of the radar signal from a radar antenna, downconverting the reflected radar signal, and digitally processing the downconverted reflected radar signal within a first frequency bandwidth using a first signal path. The method also includes deactivating the transmitter during a second time period, receiving a second signal from the radar antenna during the second time period, downconverting the second signal, measuring a power of the downconverted second signal within a second frequency bandwidth using a second signal path different from the first signal path, and determining an interference metric based on measuring the power.
