Uhnder is a start-up developing disruptive products for sensing, cognition and communication.
Uhnder uses a combination of advanced CMOS and digital code modulation (DCM) technology to deliver radars with improved performance, smaller size, lower power and cost.
Uhnder was founded in 2015 by Manju Hegde & Curtis Davis and is based in Austin, Texas.
Uhnder's approach and technology promises to transform the automotive industry by changing the way radars work and significantly improving performance with the additional benefits of smaller size, lower power and lower cost.'
Uhnder’s approach of using CMOS combined with advanced digital processing techniques borrowed from cellular communications gives them a competitive advantage over existing radar sensor and could even apply to 5G mmWave communications, robotics and surveillance applications.
Uhnder signed an agreement with Magna in 2015 to be the supplier for their next generation radar sensor called ICON. Multiple global automotive OEMs are currently evaluating Magna/Uhnder’s digital RoC prototype. In addition, several other sensor manufacturers are doing early product evaluations.
Uhnder's investors include SAIC, Monta Vista Capital, Fosun RZ Capital along with a a variety of sources. The company has raised a total of $75M in funding to date.
