    as above, if external antennae becomes disconnected can radar module be damaged. if i developed a product, that required the antennae to be seperate, what would/could happen if the antennae connection became loose, or the connection was severed. I am thinking about a particular situation, where the device may be subject to significant movement/ vibration, and while the design may be be engineered to reduce the likelyhood of such happening, it is something that accidentally could occur.
    On an unrelated query, is there any reduction in sensitivity, if the device is located near existing AC power cabling, say in a wall , such as may be in place in an existing building.

    Hi Tom,

    An open antenna connection itself will not harm X4. As always, comply with absolute maximum ratings and use ESD precautions.

    I have not experienced noise from AC cabling.
