Group standard project and formulation
The process is difficult and the content is rigorous
In May 2020, the Zhongshan Semiconductor Lighting Industry Association issued a project approval notice on the technical specifications for microwave radar induction lighting. As a pioneer of radar chips, Airtouch Technology actively participated in the discussion and formulation of the specifications, and took the lead in drafting the technical specifications. It has greatly promoted the standardization and standardization of radar applications.
On June 29, 2022, the "Technical Specifications for 5.8GHz Radar Sensors" lasted for 2 years. After in-depth visits and exchanges with practitioners in various industries, the standards were formulated to participate in many online and offline active and rigorous discussions of members. The discussion and formulation of the details of the technical specification, under the organization of the Zhongshan Semiconductor Lighting Industry Association, finally realized the implementation of the standard. The standard was published on June 29, 2022, and implemented on July 1, 2022. The standard specifies the technical requirements, test methods, inspection rules, markings, packaging, instructions for use, transportation and storage of 5.8GHz radar sensors, marking that the use of radar has entered a new stage, and It has made outstanding contributions to the health and standardization of the industry.

Industry status and history
The general trend of 5.8G radar solutions of Airtouch Technology
Since its birth, the microwave radar sensing solution has been widely used in smart lighting, smart home, smart home appliances and smart security and other industries because of its advantages such as hidden installation, strong sensing sensitivity, large sensing range, and being unaffected by temperature. However, due to the lack of clear technical specifications and frequency band compliance requirements, the quality of radar sensing products is uneven, and the user experience is mixed.
At present, the microwave radar sensors used in the lighting market mainly use 2.4G-3.9G and 5.8G.
The 2.4G-3.9G frequency seriously affects the user's product experience due to problems such as large bandwidth, poor stability, and poor consistency. At the same time, it is highly overlapping with the communication frequency of 5G mobile phones, which is an illegal occupation of mobile communication frequency. When the commercial scale of 5G mobile phones is getting larger and larger , will seriously affect the 5G signal, but because of its low cost and manufacturers' low attention to user experience, there is still a part of the market volume. However, with the standardization of the industry and the improvement of product quality requirements and the decline in the cost of 5.8G radar chips, it will be gradually replaced by 5.8G radar chip solutions.
The discrete 5.8G microwave radar solution will be gradually replaced by the 5.8G radar chip solution because of its large bandwidth, high complexity, uncontrollable consistency, and high cost.
The single-chip SoC 5.8G microwave radar solution headed by Airtouch Technology, as a pioneer of 5.8G radar chips, Airtouch Technology has been committed to promoting the compliance of radar applications. Over the years, it has been actively involved in channels, terminal manufacturers, On the user side, efforts are made to promote the upstream and downstream knowledge and understanding of radar products. Let more and more products consider their stability, compliance, user experience, etc. at the beginning of design, so that microwave radar sensing products can stand the test of time and user evaluation.
The "chip" prospect of Airtouch
the Industry‘s first choice,industry benchmark
A few days ago, the team standard "Microwave Radar Sensing Technology Indoor Lighting Application Specification" organized and led by Shanghai Pudong Intelligent Lighting Association is also being actively developed and discussed. Promote the implementation of standards.
It is believed that under the active leadership and promotion of various industry associations, as well as the standard specification, the 5.8G radar chip solution of the Airtouch Technology will become more and more the first choice for the definition of sensing products. we'll keep participating in the formulation of various radar standards and specifications, continue to invest in technology development, optimize and iterative products, and be the industry's first choice and industry benchmark.
About Zhongshan Semiconductor Lighting Industry Association
The English name Zhongshan Semiconductor Lighting Industry Association, abbreviated as ZS-SLIA, was approved and registered by the Zhongshan Civil Affairs Bureau on February 24, 2010. The Association is a non-profit, industry and local social organization voluntarily formed by semiconductor lighting enterprises in Zhongshan City. Zhongshan Semiconductor Lighting Industry Association (hereinafter referred to as the Association) was formerly known as the Zhongshan Semiconductor Lighting Industry Technology Alliance (hereinafter referred to as the Alliance). It was established in June 2009 under the guidance and care of the Guangdong Provincial Department of Science and Technology, the People's Government of Zhongshan City, the Bureau of Science and Technology of Zhongshan City, and the People's Government of Xiaolan Town, Zhongshan City. Following the establishment idea of taking enterprises as the main body and relying on public platforms, the main sponsors of Zhongshan Semiconductor Lighting Industry Association (Alliance) include public platforms, enterprises, universities, etc., which have a leading technology level and leading position in the semiconductor lighting industry in Zhongshan City. And eventually developed into a domestic semiconductor lighting industry chain by major manufacturers, industry-related government departments, professional academic institutions, distributors, energy-saving service centers, testing centers, industry research institutions, industry associations, related media service units, industry A big alliance composed of industry-related units and people such as users.
