Summary There are continuous efforts focussed on improving road traffic safety worldwide. Numerous vehicle safety features such as driver assistance systems have been invented. Many driver assistance features rely on radar-based sensors, but are highly-priced. Realization of low-cost radar front-end circuits would enable their implementation in less expensive economy cars, considerably contributing to traffic safety. Cost reduction requires high-level integration of the microwave front-end circuitry, specifically analog and digital circuit blocks co-located on a single chip. The book presents the design, implementation, and characterization of microwave receiver circuits in CMOS and SiGe bipolar technologies. The applicability of a standard digital 0.13?m CMOS technology for realization of a 24 GHz narrow-band radar front-end sensor is investigated. The presented circuits are suitable for automotive, industrial and consumer applications, as e.g. lane-change assistant, door openers or alarms
